Lexus to Reveal Luxury BEV Concept

Lexus has released one of the most bizarre teaser pictures seen to announce a new luxury BEV concept.

In a bid to challenge the viewer’s perception, the up-turned ice cream cone could, in fact, be a flank of the car viewed from the front. The concept, to be unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show next month, is unlikely to be anything other than an ultra-premium luxury vehicle boasting the BEV’s version of monster engine capacity in the shape of a huge high-output battery pack with an impressive range and sporting pretentions.

In a statement Lexus said: “It has applied continued advances in technologies such as electrification and autonomous driving to create a concept that offers a glimpse into its vision for a future vehicle that caters for customers who are equally passionate about driving and luxury experiences.”
