Lexus unveils aggressive electric RZ


The new Lexus RZ is characterised by angular and aggressive body work, and will be a vital model as the carmaker looks to up its game in electrification

Lexus has officially unveiled its all-new RZ 450e during an online event. The five-door battery electric vehicle is set to go on sale at the end of 2022, and will play an important role in the company’s electrification strategy. “As a carmaker, what should Lexus do to move towards a carbon-neutral society? 

We believe this means continuing the pursuit of making exhilarating cars that take full advantage of the unique battery EV characteristics while respecting nature, and the global environment,” said Takashi Watanabe, chief engineer, Lexus. “The RZ is quiet and comfortable, with a linear and direct feel that connects you to the car. We will continue to offer driving excitement and push the boundaries of Lexus’ unique design and driving performance through electrification technology.”
