Experience the difference between an electric vehicle and an electric Lexus. Introducing the Lexus RZ 450e—an electric vehicle as only Lexus could imagine, and a bold step toward a fully electrified future. Built atop a dedicated battery-electric platform that offers instantaneous power and a low center of gravity, for an incredibly exhilarating drive. And crafted to the exceptional standards of luxury, reliability and personalized care that continue to set Lexus apart.
The newly developed high-output electronic axle (eAxle) fully integrates the motor, transaxle and inverter within a compact unit to benefit cruise range without introducing components that compromise exterior or interior design. The front eAxle is packaged with a space-efficient layout, while the rear eAxle features a low-profile layout contributing to increased interior and cargo space.

In addition to a fully customizable drive mode, four distinct drive modes help control everything from power output, to steering response, and even the air conditioning, helping optimize power so you can tailor your drive to suit your needs.
The Lexus RZ 450e utilizes an advanced 71.4-kWh battery pack. Mounted under the floor to help contribute to a low center of gravity, this lithium-ion battery offers an optimized combination of size, weight and power density.
It’s the subtle details that make the most powerful statements. That’s why the RZ 450e offers a front emblem that captivates with seamless LED illumination.
A vision of things to come, the RZ 450e boasts an exterior that ushers in a new Lexus aesthetic and establishes a new design direction for future electrified offerings. The signature Lexus spindle grille is replaced by a Spindle Body which focuses on aerodynamic efficiencies, optimized proportions and style.
Making a statement from every angle, the RZ 450e features LED illumination that captivates. Its stunning rear fascia features a sleek full-width Blade Taillamp that remains illuminated at night—drawing further attention to the signature Lexus rear badging.
For a richer experience while driving, this Lexus-first Shadow Illumination projects a unique pattern of light onto the door trim ornament.
Looks like the future. Feels like a Lexus. Our master takumi craftsmen ensure that no detail, big or small, goes overlooked. So the RZ 450e rewards with interior comforts that include heated and ventilated front seats, ambient interior lighting, and available Tsuyasumi interior trim, which uses multiple overlapping layers of material to create a luxurious, exquisite texture.
Constructed partially from plant-derived raw materials, available Ultrasuede* trim wraps the seats and door panels for a premium, distinguished look.
With wireless access to Android Auto, you can display your device’s interface on the vehicle’s multimedia display. Play music via apps like Spotify® and Pandora®, send messages through WhatsApp®, and more. Navigate with Google Maps, and request information—all with your voice. Just say “Hey Google” to get started. For added convenience, Android Auto can also help shorten your commute by automatically finding alternate routes if it detects heavy traffic.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence. But in case you wanted to extend your peace of mind, you'll find a variety of plans available, including ones for longer-term care, one that covers accessories and another in the event of a total loss of your Lexus due to theft, fire or accident.
With enhanced radar and camera capabilities, this system* is able to detect motorcycles and, under certain conditions, can provide support to warn or mitigate collisions with oncoming vehicles and vehicles that are crossing at intersections. This intelligent system can also detect bicyclists and pedestrians in certain situations, including while turning left or right at an intersection. Should the system detect a potential frontal collision, it can help provide steering assistance and/or automatically brake to help mitigate or avoid a collision.
When All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* with Curve Speed Management is enabled, this hands-on system* monitors visible lane markings and can recognize vehicles ahead. To help the driver keep their vehicle centered in the lane, it can provide steering assistance. Designed for peace of mind, the system can even be used in traffic and on highways with gradual curves.
This system* utilizes a camera to monitor visible lane markings. If an inadvertent lane departure is detected at speeds above 32 mph, the system is designed to warn you so that you can steer back into the lane, and can even take slight corrective measures to help keep you within your visibly marked lane.
Radar and camera technology help to keep you at a preset speed and distance from vehicles ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic. If the system* detects you getting closer than the preset distance, it automatically slows your vehicle—even to a complete stop. At highway speeds, when the road ahead clears, your Lexus returns to its preset speed. This system is designed to detect curves in the road and automatically reduce vehicle speed as needed for a smoother, more confident driving experience.
