The Japanese automaker made an announcement about the production version of the Lexus LF-Z during a press conference in Texas. This came a couple of months after the LF-Z Electrified concept was presented to the world without any mention of it reaching the production line. Instead, Lexus simply stated that it was announcing the automaker’s new design language.
The road version of the Lexus LF-Z Electrified will receive the same e-TNGA platform as the Toyota bZ4X concept, shown to the world public at a press conference in Texas. Lexus noted that the car may not look exactly like the concept. However, he will have a “similarity” to him.
Lexus says it is “looking at all the competition for electric vehicles.” But it does not specify which existing models the LF-Z Electrified will chase.
Conceptually, the LF-Z has a striking design with harsh LED headlights and taillights. It also featured an iteration of the brand’s spindle grille, which is tuned for use in an electric vehicle. This means that the grid must not function. Lexus continued radical design themes in the cabin with a digital instrument cluster, two additional high-definition screens, a yoke-style steering wheel and intriguing front and rear seats.
The Lexus LF-Z Concept also features the company’s DIRECT4 four-wheel drive technology, which uses electric motors to steer the wheels freely. This system can also work in front, rear and all-wheel drive configurations
