Lexus Reveals Future EV Line-up at Japan Mobility Show
Lexus has introduced two battery electric vehicle (BEV) concepts at the Japan Mobility Show, showcasing their cutting-edge technology and the electrified future of their products. Under the theme "Pushing the Boundaries of the Electrified Experience," Lexus offers a glimpse into how they plan to leverage electrification and new technologies to provide fresh mobility experiences.
At their booth, Lexus is unveiling the LF-ZC (Lexus Future Zero-emission Catalyst), a battery electric sedan concept hinting at a forthcoming global production model in 2026, and the LF-ZL (Lexus Future Zero-emission Luxury), which represents their vision for a flagship battery-electric SUV.
Lexus, known for its pioneering technology since its inception in 1989, continues to challenge the luxury car market's conventions and deliver innovative experiences to customers as a global luxury lifestyle brand.
They are now committed to becoming an electrified brand by 2035, with a new modular structure for vehicle design, advanced production techniques, and a sophisticated software platform, redefining the Lexus Driving Signature and personalising luxury for their customers.
The upcoming generation of zero-tailpipe emission Lexus BEVs is embodied by the LF-ZC concept, set to launch globally in 2026, along with the futuristic LF-ZL flagship concept. Lexus also demonstrates its commitment to sustainability through interior design, incorporating the Bamboo CMF Concept, which combines traditional materials like bamboo with modern craftsmanship techniques.
Regarding driving performance, Lexus harnesses the inherent advantages of BEVs and their DIRECT4 all-wheel drive system to offer seamless control and a responsive, linear steering feel through the Steer by Wire system.
THE LEXUS LF-ZC
As the name suggests, the LF-ZC represents the catalyst for new electrified experiences, combining elevated driving dynamics, distinctive design, and exclusive services—a testament to Lexus' commitment to enhancing the lives of its discerning customers through their cars.
This model, symbolising Lexus' electrification effort, features a low centre of gravity, a sleek and compact silhouette, and a spacious cabin. Its design hints at an exciting driving experience where outstanding functionality and the aesthetics of beautiful design converge.
THE LEXUS LF-ZL SHOWS POSSIBILITIES FOR A FUTURE BEV FLAGSHIP
The LF-ZL is a future flagship model for Lexus, aiming to provide a prestigious ownership experience beyond the vehicle. It incorporates innovations in next-generation BEV architecture and benefits from the new Arena OS software platform.
Lexus has maximised interior space by leveraging BEV-specific packaging, creating a spacious and relaxing cabin. They have also elevated traditional Omotenashi features, ensuring their customers an advanced and enjoyable experience.
