This week, Lexus introduced its groundbreaking all-electric RZ 450e to Singapore, marking a significant milestone as the luxury brand's inaugural 100% Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). The launch, hosted at Alice@Mediapolis, heralds the dawn of Lexus's "Lexus Electrified" era, setting a new standard in the automotive market.
Technological Marvel on Wheels Built on the BEV-specific eTNGA platform, shared with its Toyota-badged bZ4X electric crossover counterpart, the RZ 450e promises a driving experience that seamlessly merges luxury and sustainability. Boasting the revolutionary BEV Spindle Body design, the RZ emphasizes aerodynamic efficiencies, making a departure from the long-standing spindle grille design, first unveiled in the LF-Gh concept in 2011.
Performance Beyond Expectations Equipped with Lexus's DIRECT4 all-wheel drive system and the innovative e-Axles system, the RZ guarantees exceptional handling stability and optimized power consumption. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds, this electric marvel supports both AC and DC charging, achieving a remarkable 10% to 80% charge in just 30 minutes.
Revolutionizing Driving Experience A pioneering feature of the RZ is its Steer-by-Wire system, introducing advanced electronic steering control that eliminates mechanical linkages. This system enhances precision and agility, redefining steering around intersections and winding roads, setting the stage for even more advanced driving experiences in the future.
Luxury in Every Detail Step into the RZ 450e's cabin adorned with premium suede door trims and sustainable seat upholstery crafted from 30% bio-based materials. The Tazuna-inspired interior design ensures a spacious and intuitive layout, complemented by a 10-inch head-up display, a colossal 14-inch infotainment display with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and a Mark Levinson premium surround sound system for an indulgent audio experience.
Safety at the Forefront Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 reinforces safety with advanced features like Pre-Collision Safety, now with enhanced detection capabilities for motorcycles, cyclists, and pedestrians. The Emergency Driving Stop System adds another layer of protection, decelerating and stopping the vehicle when necessary to prevent or minimize collisions.
Celebrating the Future of Luxury Mobility To celebrate the RZ 450e's launch, Borneo Motors Singapore and Shell Eastern Petroleum offer new RZ owners up to one-year free Shell Recharge credits and a best-in-class eight-year warranty, including EV battery coverage. Furthermore, a specialized five-year 'Lexus Electrification' package caters exclusively to EV owners, covering essential servicing items.
Jasmmine Wong, CEO of Inchcape Greater China and Singapore, expressed excitement about introducing Lexus's first pure BEV to Singapore, promising a dynamic and intuitively luxurious driving experience. As Lexus expands its 'Lexus Electrified' portfolio, it aims to exceed the expectations of a diverse luxury consumer base, pioneering the future of electrified driving.
