The base RZ 450e Premium is scheduled to reach American showrooms later this year and will cost $59,650. The front fascia of the RZ 450e Premium is aggressive, with a fully enclosed grille, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, and a standard panoramic glass roof. A hands-free power liftgate and 18-inch wheels with a two-tone finish are also available to buyers.
The cabin has a modern, affluent aesthetic. A digital instrument cluster with a heated steering wheel and a 14-inch Lexus Interface system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are visible to drivers.
The NuLuxe upholstery and eight-way motorized front seats with heating and ventilation are also features of the RZ 450e. A wireless smartphone charger, a ten-speaker music system, an ambient lighting system, and a dual-zone climate control system are a few further highlights.
Driver assistance technologies including lane departure alert with steering aid, lane tracing help, road sign assistance, a panoramic view monitor, a blind spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert are all standard on the RZ 450e Premium in terms of technology. A pre-collision system with pedestrian recognition and junction support is also a feature of the crossover.
The Luxury model features an improved interior with Ultrasuede upholstery, Tsuyasumi trim, and a multicolor ambient lighting system, so it's not just that. Additionally, heated rear seats, a front knee heater, and acoustic glass are available to buyers. The top-tier variant has a head-up display and a premium audio system with 13 speakers by Mark Levinson. Along with these extras, Lexus offers enhanced parking assistance, traffic congestion assistance, and digital key technology.
A 71.4 kWh battery pack provides energy for the dual-motor all-wheel drive system, which has a combined output of 313 hp. As a result, the crossover will be able to sprint from 0 to 96 km/h in only five seconds flat and cover 354 kilometers on a single charge.
The 2023 RZ 450e will start at $59,650, according to Lexus, which has revealed it is going electric. A $1,150 destination fee is not included in the aforementioned costs.
