The Lexus LF-Z Electrified has been unveiled as a concept battery electric vehicle (BEV) symbolising the Lexus brand transformation – incorporating driving performance, styling and advanced technology set to be realised by 2025.
To deliver the significant evolution of vehicle performance using electrification technology, which is the aim of the Lexus Electrified vision, the LF-Z Electrified adopts a dedicated BEV platform.
It features a new four-wheel driving force control technology known as DIRECT4, which uses the instant responsiveness of an electric motor’s driving force to individually control each wheel for superior and highly flexible driving performance.
By fusing the electrification technologies and vehicle motion control technologies that Lexus has long cultivated, a core aim is to evolve driving performance in a way that better connects the driver with their vehicle.
Drawing from advanced lithium-ion battery technology, the LF-Z Electrified realises a maximum 600km cruising range [WLTP] on a single charge – combined with 400kW of power, 700Nm of torque and standstill to 100km/h performance in 3.0 seconds.
The sculpted and emotional exterior of the LF-Z Electrified strongly accentuates the uniqueness of Lexus design and expresses the dynamic and agile driving sensation delivered by high-output electric motors.
