Rendered: The Lexus Luxury Minivan

Lexus Luxury Minivan

The president of Lexus Manila, Raymond Rodriguez, created quite a stir earlier this month when he announced it was “only a matter of time” before Lexus released a luxury minivan.

The idea has experienced surprising traction, to the point that website Motor1 commissioned a rendering to illustrate what this luxury van might look like:

The rendering merges the LX front grille with the body of the Toyota Alphard, and the result manages to capture the otherworldy appeal of Japanese minivans. That said, can you imagine dealerships trying to sell this model in North America?

(While Lexus has yet to make a public comment on these rumors, a minivan could also explain the recent LM 300h & LM 350 trademarks.)
