The Lexus Electrified Sport Concept will be shown publicly for the first time outside Japan at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of June.
Advertised explicitly as the spiritual successor to the Lexus LFA for the electric age, the Electrified Sport Concept combines extravagant coupe design with impressive EV performance, though not all details have been revealed yet.
The automaker promises that the Electrified Sport Concept will have a range of 435 miles (700 km) and will be capable of reaching 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in the “low two-second range.” The eventual production version of the vehicle could achieve all of this and keep its weight down with the possible use of solid-state batteries, which Toyota (among others) has been working on.
First unveiled in February, Lexus says that the concept represents what its vision of electrification will mean in the next few years.
The RZ 450e, meanwhile, is a vision of what the even nearer-term electric future will mean for the brand. Unveiled in April, the luxury SUV rides on a brand new electric platform. It will benefit from optional steer-by-wire with a One Motion Grip yoke and up to 280 miles (450 km) of range.
Finally, the UX 300e represents the brand’s current EVs. Now available at European dealers, the crossover makes 201 hp (150 kW/204 PS) and has a range of up to 196 miles (315 km) on the WLTP cycle.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from June 23-26.
