THE EVOLUTION OF ELECTRIFIED

ALL-NEW RZ

Find out more about an exciting new driving experience as Lexus announces its first ever Electric Car built from the ground up.

EXPLORE ALL-NEW LEXUS RZ

 

Developed under the ‘Lexus Driving Signature’ philosophy, RZ is the first dedicated Lexus Battery Electric Car. It is designed and engineered to set a new benchmark in terms of premium driving experience, providing the driver with a carefully crafted and intimate connection with their car, characterised by confidence, control and comfort.

Exquisite Design

All-New RZ incorporates all the qualities and advanced craftmanship associated with the Lexus brand.

RZ operates on a dedicated all electric vehicle platform, offering optimised body rigidity, a low centre of gravity and a long wheelbase. All of these features result in a purposeful stance and excellent weight balance. 

The sharp frontal design of the RZ generates a sense of power and movement. A lowered bonnet results in reduced intake openings and increased efficiency. Evolution of the signature Lexus spindle grill distinguishes RZ as a battery electric vehicle, and the spindle design has been applied across the rest of the body. 

New ultra slim headlight units give extra emphasis to the Lexus L-motif of the daytime running lights.

RZ will turn heads on the road with it’s stunning design signature and optional bi-tone colours. 

Striking interior

The RZ cabin offers a light and open space, enhanced by ambient lighting with selectable colours to suit the mood of the journey.

Thoughtfully placed meters, a head-up display, 14-inch multimedia screen, and battery electric vehicle performance displayed in a clean and minimalistic style enhances convenience, emphasising the spirit of Omotenashi hospitality. 

An optional panoramic roof* reflects infra-red radiation and reduces heat on warm days while helping keep heat inside when the weather is cooler. The roof has an electric dimming function, instantly switching from transparent to opaque with a simple touch control. 

New radiant heaters* are positioned at knee-level in front of the driver and front passenger, they help speed up the warming of the driver and front passenger, along with the panoramic roof, they help save energy, reducing the load on the air conditioning system.

*Available on selected grades and packs.

Tazuna Cockpit

RZ adopts the Tazuna Cockpit, inspired by the Japanese definition: small adjustments of the reins a rider uses to control the horse. Due to the precise positioning of controls and displays, there are only small movements required by the driver to operate the vehicle.

We are introducing a One Motion Grip* steer-by-wire system including a steering yoke replacing the traditional steering wheel.

This world first, uses electrical connection to send inputs from the steering wheel and from the wheels, resulting in an instant response, more precise steering control and reducing hand-over-hand turns.

The new feature reduces steering wheel sway over rough roads, offers stable control and correction in strong winds resulting in excellent straight line performance on agile surfaces.

* Available as an option on Takumi grade from April 2023 production.

Charging & Range

Full performance data will be confirmed later this year, with an impressive indicative range.

Charging your RZ is simple and there are a number of options:

  • Slow: Charge at home using a standard 3-pin plug 
  • Fast: Charge at home with a dedicated 7kW wallbox
  • Rapid: Charge on the go using up to 150kW DC rapid chargers

Lexus Safety System +

RZ adopts the 3rd Generation Lexus Safety System + which was successfully launched with NX. In addition to the many safety features already included, RZ will incorporate two new features:

Proactive Driving Assist with Steering Assist uses front cameras to foresee oncoming bends in the road where it will determine the angle and adjusting the steering in accordance with the approaching bend and making a turn.

New Driver Monitor which checks for signs of fatigue or distraction displayed by the driver.
