Safety: Lexus Safety System 3
Every Lexus RZ 450e has a very comprehensive package of active safety systems: Lexus Safety System 3. This package includes Pre-Collision System, Lane Keeping System, Intelligent Speed ​​Assist, Forward Cross Traffic Assist and Road Sign Support. Front and rear parking sensors with brakes for objects, pedestrians and vehicles and a reversing camera also make parking safer and easier.

Safe Departure Assistance
Getting out is also safer for passengers and other road users. Pressing a button is enough to open the door automatically and conveniently, just like the latest Lexus NX. The system is called e-Latch and is integrated with Blind Spot Assist, which ‘sees’ cyclists and other road users approaching from behind. If the occupant uses the e-Latch when, for example, a cyclist approaches, the automatic opening of the door is stopped immediately. At least 95 percent of all accidents caused by opening doors can be prevented by the innovative e-Latch and Safe Exit Assist.

Lexus e-Axle
The RZ 450e uses the Lexus e-Axle, a compact, modular unit mounted between the wheels that integrates the electric motor, transmission and electronic control unit (ECU). RZ 450e has e-Axle for front and rear axles. Both units work closely with DIRECT4 All-Wheel Drive Control. The electric motor on the front axle produces 150 kW and the electric motor on the rear produces 80 kW. Total power thus comes to 230 kW / 313 hp. This makes the car good for acceleration to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The maximum speed is 160 km / h.

DIRECT4 All Wheel Drive Control
The RZ 450e is the first Lexus to use the new DIRECT4 All Wheel Drive Control. This intelligent system continuously balances traction on all four wheels and distributes drive power automatically and seamlessly. The result is stress-free performance and consistent handling. Due to the integration with e-Axles, the drive power can be distributed completely differently. For example, the RZ 450e can switch from front to rear-wheel drive or vice versa in milliseconds; faster than any other mechanical system. The distribution of driving force is even different for each wheel. The system adjusts the transmission based on, for example, speed, steering angle and G-forces. Because adjustments are made so quickly, care is always fully adapted to the current situation. In this way DIRECT4 contributes to the feeling that the driver and the car are one.

New Year’s Eve
From now on, the pre-sale of the new Lexus RZ 450e begins. The first copies are expected at Dutch Lexus dealers at the end of the first quarter of 2023. As with every Lexus, the RZ 450e has a warranty period of up to 10 years and 200,000 kilometers.
