Planned Lexus electric vehicle lineup

What comes next is much more exciting. Shown in the metal during Tuesday’s presentation was the Lexus Electrified Sport, a low-slung supercar powered by a solid-state battery and capable of 0-60 mph acceleration in the low 2.0 seconds. The range was quoted at more than 400 miles, though this is likely to be on the more lenient cycle used in Japan. Expect a figure closer to 300 miles when using the EPA test cycle.

Also shown in physical form was the Lexus Electrified Sedan and Lexus Electrified SUV, which likely preview electric successors to the current IS sedan and RX crossover.

A photo of additional Lexus EVs was also released. It shows a wagon-like version of the Lexus Electrified Sedan, plus a hatchback and a 2+2 convertible.

Specific timing for these future models wasn’t mentioned, though Toyota President Akio Toyoda during the presentation said we’ll start seeing them in the coming years.
