Lexus shows off a sneak preview of its first electric vehicle
Lexus, Toyota’s premium automaker, stated that it will unveil its first all-electric vehicle at 6 a.m. ET on Wednesday, April 20th. And it provided two teaser photographs, one of which has a steering yoke, which we regret to inform you.
In some ways, this is unsurprising. When Toyota’s next-generation, long-range EV, the BZ4X, is unveiled later this year, it will also include an optional yoke. The automaker appears to be taking design cues from Tesla, which equipped the Model S Plaid with a yoke. For those who are not interested in going full yoke, the BZ4X will also include a normal steering wheel and system.
It is unknown whether Lexus would provide a non-yoke version of the RZ 450e, the company’s future electric vehicle. Additionally, the company teased a prototype EV that appears to be fashioned similarly to the BZ4X.
