Lexus reveals LC-30 EV

Lexus has put the LF-30 on display at the Tokyo Motor Show, showcasing an electrified outlook that will see the company's first EV launched next year.

The LF-30 is a true concept, and is not going to make it into production. With large gull-wing doors, in-wheel motors, and a high-concept interior and exterior design, this is Lexus displaying an eye-catching EV rather than a near-production concept.

That, Lexus says, will come next month, with its first pure-electric model unveiled in November before going on sale in 2020. Lexus is developing its existing hybrid line-up, plus Plug-in hybrids, pure-electric models, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

After its first pure-electric model, a first PHEV will arrive and a new pure-EV dedicated platform will arrive 'early in the coming decade'.

Until next month, the LF-30 is garnering attention as a look ahead to what Lexus could do in 2030. Specs include wireless rapid charging, a 311 mile range, 3.8 second 0-62mph time, 110 kWh battery, 150 kW DC charging speed, and 400 kW output.
