2023 Lexus RZ450e Finally, An EV That’s Worth It

2023 Lexus RZ450e – Lexus will closely follow Toyota in the EV battle with a brand new model, which we are aware of as the RZ. Based on these pictures it seems closely related to the Toyota bZ4X however it appears to be distinctively styled on the front and rear end which are in line with the present Lexus design standard. The production model was first shown through the Lexus’ LF-Z Electrified concept that was revealed earlier this year. It is one of the very initial Lexus EVs to the sold in the U.S., following the UX300e that is exclusively sold in China.
