Supercar Blondie goes behind the scenes with the Lexus All-Electric Sport Concept. Even though the LFA successor does not have an official name yet, we do know that it will feature a fully electric drivetrain with a mind-blowing performance. In the next few years, Lexus is preparing to launch a new family of electric vehicles, including some supercars. The swoopy two-door coupe looks absolutely sensational and we hope the final version won’t stray away too far from the concept.
Technical specifications are still very much shrouded in mystery, although we are being told it inherits the “secret sauce” of the iconic LFA, a V10-powered supercar. Toyota’s luxury division has previously said the Electrified Sport can do 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in the low two-second range. Lexus says the development would include the adoption of solid-state batteries to speed up charging and increase driving range. The use of next-gen batteries tells us the electric performance machine will likely come out towards the end of the decade.
Lexus says the Electrified Sport concept has been envisioned to cover in excess of 700 kilometers (435 miles) between charges. However, it’s unclear upon which testing cycle this number is based, so we’ll have to wait and find out whether it’s WLTP, EPA, or Japan’s JC08. To live up to its sports car status, the production vehicle that will evolve from the spectacular concept promises to deliver a “seamless connection of deceleration, steering, and acceleration at all times.”
In this video, Supercar Blondie provides an in-depth walk around of the electric concept while also featuring some unique design details.
