Last December, Lexus announced that it will only offer electric vehicles (EVs) in Europe, North America, and China by 2030. By 2035, Lexus will only offer EVs in all markets. One of those vehicles is the Lexus Electrified Sport Concept, which will be sold alongside the RZ and other Lexus EVs.
While this isn’t the first time we’re seeing the Electrified Sport Concept, as the company already showcased this alongside its plethora of future EVs last December, Lexus has decided to release a video showcasing the future electric LFA successor.

Upfront, the sporty front fascia features a low hood, a prominent front splitter, and T-shaped intakes. These are then flanked by stacked LED headlights with L-shaped LED daytime running lights. As for its rear end, the Lexus Electrified Sport Concept features numerous vents along with a double-bubble roof that’s painted in black. There are also high-performance brakes with red calipers and lightweight wheels. There’s also a sort of T-shaped element at the rear end of the concept, along with distinctive LED taillights.
No other technical details have been revealed, but during Toyota’s presentation of its future electric vehicle range last December, the Japanese automaker’s executives revealed that the Electrified Sport Concept will have a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time in the low two-second range. It will also have a driving range of 435 miles thanks to solid-state batteries.
Expectations for the future Lexus electric supercar are sky-high, because even today, the Lexus LFA is still a highly-desirable supercar, especially due to its 4.8-liter V-10 that produces 553 horsepower along with a howling high-pitched sound that is still considered the best-sounding engine in the industry to date.
