The upcoming 2023 Lexus RZ 450e has been shown, with futuristic aesthetics. Lexus made its initial entry into the all-electric market with the UX 300e subcompact crossover, which was only available in a few locations. The Lexus RZ 450e appears to be far more elegant than the Toyota bZ4X, which shares mechanical components with the Subaru Solterra crossover.
Surprisingly, the company published a video of the impending SUV, demonstrating that it will be more than just a rebranded electric vehicle. Surprisingly, this model comes standard with an AWD system and is powered by pair of motors.
Lexus RZ 450e Exterior Design
The 2023 Lexus RZ 450e is an attractive crossover SUV, with a distinct design and it looks more handsome than the Toyota bZ4X model. In general, the design is innovative, but this model cannot be confused with any other Lexus. The new design features an appealing front grille, headlights, and wheel design with gleaming black arches.
The Lexus RZ 450e looks elegant from the back, with a sporty roof spoiler and appealing LED taillights. This model looks far better than the rest of the rivals. The RZ 450e will wear two badges and the center light bar will sport “Lexus” lettering in the middle of it.
When you get into the 2023 Lexus RZ 450e, you’ll notice that the interior is extremely familiar. This SUV, like other luxury Lexus cars, has a sleek and sophisticated appearance. Lexus did an excellent job of incorporating high-quality materials and a digital instrument cluster that is positioned at a comfortable distance from the driver.
From what we know, a 14-inch touchscreen will come as standard. That is quite an improvement over the Subaru Solterra’s 12.3-inch unit. The RZ 450e model will arrive as a mid-size crossover SUV with a room for five passengers. We are waiting to hear more details. The most recent reports are suggesting standard safety aids such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and forward-collision warning.
The all-electric 2023 Lexus RZ 450e easily outperforms the Toyota bZ4X model. A pair of electric motors provide more than enough power for this model. The front electric motor produces 150 kW, while the rear-mounted electric motor produces 80 kW. They have a combined output of roughly 230 kW, or 308 horsepower, to be precise.
That is more than 90 horses than the rivals from Subaru and Toyota have to offer. The new model, as far as we know, will have a 71.4-kWh battery pack and will be able to go 225 miles on a single charge. In comparison, Solterra and bZ4X models will offer 228 miles with an AWD system.

The sales will begin at the beginning of 2023, so we are waiting to hear more information in the following weeks.
