  • Lexus to show electric concept at Tokyo Motor Show

    The biennial Tokyo Motor Show returns this year, and Lexus apparently has something big in store for the event. According to Motor1, the Japanese premium brand will unveil an electric vehicle concept at the show in October, a plan it revealed at a recent media event in Costa Rica.

    Little is known about the car itself, but it will reportedly take the form of a small hatchback with a “radical” design language. One detail that is known is that Lexus’ already massive spindle grille will be enlarged still further, with the online publication saying that it “dominates the front fascia” and stretches all the way to the windscreen – which should put BMW’s cartoonish new plus-size grilles to shame.

    Technical details are still under wraps, but the car could utilise Toyota’s upcoming dedicated electric vehicle architecture, developed in conjunction with Subaru. The parent company already confirmed that a Lexus EV, based on this e-TNGA platform, was in the works, so this show car could very well presage it.

    This wouldn’t be the first time Lexus is showcasing a small electric vehicle – the company debuted the LF-SA city car concept in Geneva way back in 2015, with a similarly outlandish design.
