Lexus releases stunning pictures of its all-electric supercar successor to the LFA
The electric car market is growing at a rapid pace, and more and more established manufacturers like Volkswagen and BMW are increasingly trying to give EV pioneer Tesla a run for its money. Despite being a leader in hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell technologies, the world's largest carmaker has remained noticeably calm and barely offered any indications on the state of its highly anticipated upcoming electric cars and SUVs.
But after Toyota has officially announced its EV initiative this past December, the Japanese company has now released additional pictures of its very sleek looking electric supercar which is being developed by its reputable luxury brand Lexus. The BEV Sport supercar concept is apparently intended to become the spiritual successor to the iconic Lexus LFA, whose production ended a decade ago and turned the sports car into a sought-after collectible.
The rough performance specs of the Lexus BEV supercar concept are almost as impressive as its beautiful exterior design seen in the pictures embedded below. The sporty electric Lexus could possibly accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a little bit more than two seconds, while its range could exceed 430 miles at regular highway cruising speeds.
Furthermore, the probably very expensive electric supercar could be equipped with a solid-state battery, and it will be released by 2030 as part of Lexus' comprehensive EV lineup. Needless to say, the luxury Japanese carmaker also works on regular electric cars and SUVs which will most likely be significantly cheaper than this apparent successor to the Lexus LFA.
