The Lexus RZ 450e is expected to launch until April 20th, but some screenshots from Japan may have revealed the look and feel of the production EV. No wonder they look pretty close to official concept image we have seen before. In some ways increase production, in other ways increase.
The images appear to have been leaked in an advertisement by the Discover Japan Channel, which users at RZforums.com screen shot. Screenshot showing a burnt orange RZ driving on a test course in Japan.
The inevitable outfit is the form of a black hood that accentuates the Lexus spindle grille. Although it has been in use for more than 10 years now, it is still a controversial Lexus design. It works better on some cars than otherbut in the case of RZ, the company seems to want to double down on highlighting its contours.
On the other hand, the body-colored nose of the concept car seems to have been replaced with a black part where the grille could have been placed on an internal combustion vehicle. This allows RZ to maintain a grille look without actually having one. The result is a face that looks more traditional than the Mirai-esque schnoz concept. It should be noted that the production car also has a black roof, which the concept does not have.
In general, the design of the Lexus RZ is far different from Subaru Solterra and Toyota bZ4X on which it is based. While those two are almost indistinguishable from each other, Lexus has a unique sheet metal that is represented by its surface, C-pillar treatment and more. Perhaps the biggest relief for some, the RX has ditched the black paneling on the front fenders for a body-color outfit.
The Toyota The bZ4X is powered by a single 201 hp electric motor or a dual-motor, all-wheel drive configuration with 214 hp. Both options use 71.4 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion the battery during the Japanese test cycle, the range was 310 km for front-wheel drive and 285 km for all-wheel drive. Lexus might get a performance boost, but we won’t know until April 20 at the latest.
