Smooth, Efficient, and Practical Performance

Getting an EV means you’ll have a vehicle that is powered purely with the electric charge of a battery. The battery in the Lexus RZ, specifically, is mounted under the vehicle floor. This provides a lower center of gravity for enhanced stability and comfort as you drive.

With a single charge, it provides a manufacturer-projected range of 220 miles. Plus, with 312 total system horsepower, the RZ can get up to speed swiftly. The high-output axle is fully integrated with the motor, transaxle, and inverter, which helps provide a boost in range—and added room in the cabin as well.

The Lexus RZ 450e is equipped with Direct4 technology, which is an all-wheel drive system Lexus developed specifically for their electric vehicles. With it, you will notice improved acceleration when the light turns green, enhanced stability around turns and slippery roads, and lower power consumption.
