Lexus Electrified Sport Concept Making U.S. Debut In Monterey


Lexus has announced its plans for Monterey Car Week that will showcase the brand’s evolution and offer the world a glimpse of its future.

A key highlight for Lexus will be the U.S. premiere of the Electrified Sport Concept that was first showcased at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. The vehicle will be the marquee vehicle of Lexus’ display at the Pebble Beach Golf Links from August 18th.

The Lexus display at Pebble Beach will also include the RZ 450e, RX 500h F Sport Performance, IS 500, LC 500 Convertible, and Lexus Racing RC Cup Car. The LC 500 Convertible, LC 500 Coupe, RC F, IS 500, NX 350, NX 450h+, and LX 600 will also be available for test drives.

The following day, Lexus will have a display at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering with the RX 500h F Sport Performance, Lexus Racing RC F GT3, and the Hirakui & Townsend Bell Street Performance IS 500 unveiled at last year’s SEMA Show.

The automaker’s display at Pebble Beach will remain open on August 19, 20, and the 21st.

Lexus has said that the aforementioned Electrified Sport Concept previews an all-electric successor to the iconic LFA. It has been envisioned as potentially using solid-state batteries that could provide it with a range of up to 430 miles (700 km) while powerful electric motors would allow it to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in the low 2-second range.

A report from earlier this week indicated that Lexus could equip the car with some kind of simulated manual transmission designed to increase driver engagement.
