Lexus has shared the first images of the new RZ, an electric crossover. The RZ’s body shape makes us think that it’s related to the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra. It will likely use a more powerful drivetrain than those models, which only make 215 horsepower in their dual-motor forms.
We’re expecting the RZ to wear the RZ450e designation, given that Lexus has already trademarked that moniker. The number 450 suggests more power than the 215 horsepower than the bZ4X offers in two-motor form, so we think the Lexus will use a more potent all-wheel-drive two-motor setup. We’d expect the Lexus to start around $50,000, and an F Sport version will probably be part of the lineup.
