Electric Lexus IS Sedan Arrives in 2025?


Japanese magazine Best Car is reporting that the fourth-generation Lexus IS sedan will debut in 2025 with a battery-electric powertrain and aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3.

Lexus had originally scheduled the next-gen IS this year, but pushed the release forward to 2025 in order to accommodate the brand’s decision to go full-electric-only. Details are speculative, but Best Car claims the new IS will be available with a choice of RWD & AWD and “different motor output and cruising range”, opening the door for a possible return of the IS F (albeit in EV form).

In one thread we wanted Lexus to at least have an electric "sports" sedan. Wish granted.

Absolutely awesome! But I still hope that it comes with the 2.4L turbo 4 RWD with around 220kw as an option but if not then I'm still up to change to BEV so long the batteries are solid state.
