Lexus is not ready to abandon the grille

According to Koichi Suga, the grille is one of the recognizable elements that emphasize the design of Lexus cars.

Recently, in the lineup of almost every automaker, electrified models began to appear. The design of new products is becoming more futuristic. In order not to be inferior to their competitors, some companies even have to change the classic appearance elements inherent only to them.

One of the main details of the appearance is certainly a decorative radiator grille, which in addition to aesthetic functions, provides air access for cooling the internal combustion engine.

Recall that electric cars do not require such intensive cooling, so there is a chance that soon this element will completely disappear in the design of new models.

 However, such a change in the design of the car categorically disagrees with the head of Lexus Design Dision. According to Koichi Suga, the grille is one of the recognizable elements that emphasizes the design of Lexus cars, so he plans to keep it as long as possible.

In addition, modern electric vehicles are equipped with a large number of electronic components and sensors, which, like internal combustion engines, need cooling.
