The Japanese company, part of Toyota, announced that by 2025, it will introduce 20 new or improved models. More than half of them will be electrified---battery-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) or hybrid (HEV).
It would be great if we see several new all-electric models within those five years.
Considering the presentation of the Lexus LF-Z Electrified concept and a hint the "electric cars will use BEV-dedicated platform," we can assume at least some of those BEVs will be proprietary models rather than compliance, low-spec EV versions of ICE cars.
The LF-Z Electrified concept specs give us an idea of what we could expect from the upcoming Lexus electric cars.
There is long-range,373 miles WLTP, and a high-capacity liquid-cooled battery, 90 kWh, that can be charged at up to 150 kW.
The new platform will use the DIRECT4, dual-motor, all-wheel-drive system---one electric motor per axle---with a peak system output of 400 kW and 700 Nm of torque. That's enough to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds. The top speed is listed at 124 mph---not the highest but not slow either.
If Lexus is going electric, we can assume Toyota and its satellite brands will also join the BEV bandwagon...finally.
