Lexus Electrified Sport Concept Further Detailed In Photos And Video
And it will have the "secret sauce" of the LFAby Isaac Atienza, on
Just after showing more details of its near-production-ready Lexus RZ and the Lexus Electrified SUV Concept, it’s now time for the Lexus Electrified Sport Concept to shine. It’s billed as an electric supercar with the "secret sauce" from the LFA, and it’s just one of a much larger range of electric vehicles (EVs) that the Japanese luxury automaker will be releasing within the decade.
While this isn’t the first time we’re seeing the Electrified Sport Concept, this will be the first time we’re seeing the EV supercar in more angles. Upfront, the sporty front fascia features a low hood, a prominent front splitter, and T-shaped intakes. These are then flanked by stacked LED headlights with L-shaped LED daytime running lights.
Moving on to its rear three-quarter look, the Lexus Electrified Sport Concept features numerous vents along with a double-bubble roof that’s painted in black. Other details have not been confirmed, but it’s safe to say it’ll come with high-performance brakes with red calipers and lightweight wheels. There’s also a sort of T-shaped element at the rear end of the concept, along with distinctive LED taillights.
No other technical details have been revealed, but during Toyota’s presentation of its future electric vehicle range last December, the Japanese automaker’s executives revealed that the Electrified Sport Concept will have a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time in the low two-second range. It will also have a driving range of 435 miles thanks to solid-state batteries.
Expectations for the Lexus Electrified Sport Concept is sky-high, because even today, the Lexus LFA is still a highly-desirable supercar, especially due to its 4.8-liter V-10 that produces 553 horsepower, 354 pound-feet of torque, but more importantly, a howling high-pitched sound that no other car till this day has replicated. As a matter of fact, an LFA is recently being sold for $1.1 million due to its desirability.
