The Japanese company presented the LF-Z show car
The Japanese brand Lexus, which has not yet created even a single compromise electric car, has shown another concept on the topic of electric vehicles called the LF-Z. This is just an exhibition sample, which is not going to be put on the conveyor, and therefore its characteristics, in general, do not reflect anything except the imagination of the creators.
So, we have an electric car with surprisingly simple lithium-ion batteries. It’s even strange that there were no solid-state batteries for the concept car, on which Toyota has been working for several years.
The battery capacity is not a record one, but it is quite a decent 90 kilowatt-hours. It is also difficult to surprise anyone with a maximum charging current of 150 kilowatts, given that, for example, the KIA EV6 presented an hour earlier “digests” more than 350 kilowatts and will go on sale in the second half of the year.
The Lexus advantage should be a smart electric drive, in which, depending on conditions, torque can be transferred only to the rear, only to the front, or to all four driving wheels.
The total power of the electric drive is 544 horsepower. The LF-Z accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour in exactly three seconds, and its top speed is limited to 200 kilometers per hour. The power reserve on a single charge is 600 kilometers (WLTP).
Despite the fact that the LF-Z is nothing more than a concept, Lexus promises a lot of new products. By 2025, there will be 20 new models, including two serial novelties this year. Some of them will indeed be electric vehicles.
