Most likely, the first-ever all-electric car of the Japanese brand will become the electric version of the small UX crossover. Maybe this is a small hatchback.

Lexus officials have just announced that next month, the premium brand will present its first car without an internal combustion engine. This presentation will follow such massive electric cars as the Honda E, Volvo XC40 and Mazda MX-30. An important message from the luxury division of Toyota was not made in a separate press release, but in time for the presentation of the amazing LF-30 concept, which is currently on display at the company’s booth at the Tokyo Motor Show.

All that the Lexus guys said about their new product at the moment is that “the first electric car will be presented in November 2019.” What kind of car this will not be reported, but insiders suggest that it is either a fully electric version of the small UX crossover, or a small hatchback.

One of the possible indications that the prestigious brand is going to present exactly the electric version of the UX crossover can be found in the press release, which is dedicated to the LF-30 electrical concept. Lexus reports that at the beginning of the next decade a new platform will be unveiled for electrified cars. So we can assume that the electric car, which we will be shown next year, will be based on an existing car with an internal combustion engine.

 By the middle of the next decade, Lexus promises to introduce electrified versions of all their models. It is expected that the sales volume of such versions of current cars will exceed the sales of conventional brand cars with internal combustion engines.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Lexus introduced the amazing LF-30 electro concept. The Japanese novelty received a 536-horsepower engine, as well as massive doors. The spectacular concept car has four electric motors. Acceleration to the first 100 km/h takes 3.8 seconds, and the maximum speed is 200 km / h.
