As it was previously announced, the Lexus RX 450e, the first global pure electric model of the brand, made its official debut on April 20, 2022.
The all-new Lexus RX 450e has a unique exterior design – a BEV Spindle Body – focused on aerodynamic efficiencies, style, and optimized proportions.
The interior is minimalist and spacious, but luxurious and hi-tech. A panoramic roof visually opens the space. Thanks to mindfully sourced materials and an efficient radiant heater, first for the brand, passengers will find themselves in fully comfortable conditions.
A BEV-specific e-TNGA platform the vehicle rides on, as well as a highly rigid and lightweight body, enhance performance.
The core technology used in the Lexus RX 450e is the highly responsive DIRECT4 all-wheel-drive system. Also, the model adopts a new steering control and a Steer by Wire system enabling the control more true to the driver’s intention.
