Lexus is currently putting the finishing touches on a brand new BEV called the Lexus RZ
Built on a completely new dedicated platform called e-TNGA, it has been designed to deliver an incredible driving experience that will define a new standard for BEV driving combining Lexus level comfort with superior dynamic performance.
Thanks to the addition of exciting advanced technologies like the exclusive drive force control system called DIRECT4, the RZ will provide incredible road holding and cornering giving the driver a heightened sense of confidence and control.
The DIRECT4 system dynamically controls the drive force to the wheels constantly optimizing the power delivery. This allows the RZ to seamlessly shift from front wheel drive to rear wheel drive or varying combinations of all wheel drive in the blink of an eye.
The new RZ will also be available with a cutting edge steer-by-wire system that provides comfort and convenience by eliminating the traditional hand over hand action for lower speed driving or parking. Imagine doing a full U-turn with a simple motion of the steering wheel. As the same time, the steering wheel’s comfortable and unique shape provides a clear view to all relevant information from the instrument panel to the heads-up windshield display.
The all-new RZ will be revealed in the first half of 2022.
