Lexus Promises 20 New Vehicles By 2025

21-03-30-Future-Linep

We are still digesting all of the news from this morning’s LF-Z Electrified concept reveal, and outside of the concept itself, one of the most exciting announcements was around Lexus’ future product plans: 20 new vehicles by 2025.

In the photo above, Koji Sato, Chief Branding Officer at Lexus, stands in front of the LF-Z Electrified as well as four covered future vehicles in the background. What might they be? First, let’s start with some other parts of today’s announcement:

  • 20 new vehicles by 2025 including battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and other electric vehicles
  • Two new vehicle reveals coming this year (2021)
  • Electric versions of every model by 2025
  • New “…sports models that continue to provide the fun of driving, a car that redefines the concept of having a chauffeur, and new genres that have never before existed”

It’s clear that the Lexus we’ve known over the last few years launched an entirely new chapter today, and that starts with product. So let’s get back to those four vehicles in the photo above.

We know that the all-new NX will soon be revealed, which will be one of the new models for 2021, and likely one of the covered models above.

The RX is due for a redesign soon after the NX, though no spy photos or advance teasers have been seen yet. That could be another one of the covered models.

The ES sedan should be refreshed this year as a 2022 model to coincide with a 2019 model year launch. Would a refreshed model be included here? Maybe or maybe not.

Last, there have been early rumors about the sixth generation LS, and since the IS was just refreshed for 2021, a new LS seems to be the most likely candidate for another new sedan based on timing.

But that leaves us wondering: Where is the new LX? The two SUVs shown in the photo above are too small to be the LX, and clearly have more crossover-esque shapes. Or is the LX about to undergo a major transformation into a crossover? There’s also no promise that the two smaller covered vehicles are sedans – they could just as well be coupes, so new versions of the LC and RC are just as possible as a new ES and LS.

Here’s our best guess, from left to right: New RX, new LS, new ES, new NX. Oh, and those two new models for 2021? We assume they are the next generation NX and LX. What do you think? Give us your best guess in the Lexus Enthusiast forum.

The LS does make sense. Assuming it will be here by 2025 that would make the current model about 8 yo.

Woo hoo! Can't wait. On second thought, my pocketbook can wait for that Lexus that ticks my few requirements.

I am now a believer in Lexus / Toyota reliability. Just need to offer more performance-oriented trims (or keep models such as the IS or RC) not mostly based on cosmetics.

20 by 2025 , so that means by the end of 2024 & currently we have the following

*no minor or major in the next 3 years
ES , IS & UX
*major MK-II already leaked
NX
*major overhaul is waiting
RX , GX , LX & LM
*new registered tradename
RZ & TX


----------------NX 3 Variants
NX (ICEV)
NX (HEV)
NX (PHEV)
----------------RZ 1 Variant
RZ (BEV)
----------------RX 3 Variants
RX (ICEV)
RX (HEV)
RX (PHEV)
----------------GX 2 Variants
GX (ICEV)
GX (HEV)
----------------LX 2 Variants
LX (ICEV)
LX (HEV)
Those are 11 solid, nearly confirmed.
maybe the production LF-1 limitless in 3 or even 4 , as it maybe even 2 or 1 but anyway we will be close

And I think it's 20 international so we can put 2 for LM (HEV & ICE) maybe 3 PHEV to the previous 2 and maybe even 1 only hybrid as NA Sienna

Now the remaining will be for Sedan and Coupe

From the European Lexus Newsroom we can read (https://newsroom.lexus.eu/world-premiere-of-lf-z-electrified--a-vision-of-a-new-era-for-lexus/ ) :

"By 2025, Lexus will introduce 20 new or upgraded models, including more than 10 battery electric (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEVs) and self-charging hybrid electric (HEVs) to meet the needs of different countries and regions around the world. It will strengthen its core sedan and SUV ranges and also explore the possibility of introducing new vehicle types, such as sports models, cars appropriate for chauffeur driving and models in entirely new categories. Throughout, Lexus will rise to the challenge of delivering new premium values, while exceeding the diverse expectations of its customers worldwide.
Lexus intends to offer electrified versions of all its models by 2025, by when it also expects electrified vehicles to account for more than half its global sales."

  • More than 10 are going to be eletrified (BEV/PHEV/HEV)
  • New "cars appropriate for chauffeur driving", am I reading here something like Bentley/Rolls Royce? The rumored Century based Lexus?
  • "models in entirely new categories" should be the RZ450e CrossOver Coupe
  • By 2025 every model will have a eletrified powertrain, LX Hybrid confirmation?

Congratulations. You are now a mod here. :)

I just read European release that clarifies it wont be 20 BEV/PHEV/HEV models but rather just 10. You can't come to that conclusion easily by reading US release.

"more than 10"

that is plenty of models, just depends on how they count them all. IE, could be:
- NX350h, NX450h+
- LX600h
- UX300h, UX300e
- RX300h, RX450h
- LS600h
- ES300h, ES450h+
- RZ450e

So without them lifting a finger, it is already 11+ new or improved.

Question since the LS came out in 17 as a 18 model wouldn’t that make it one of the hidden ones in this pic due for a remodel? By my guess that’s could be 22 for 23 model year correct?

Haven’t heard much on the LS tbh.. but a PHEV 500h+ would make sense
