GQ Japan has posted an early look at the Lexus concept set to debut in late October at the Japan Mobility Show. This concept was teased last week during a media event, which Hans Greimel of Automotive News also attended — here’s what he had to say:
A new generation of F-inspired all-electric performance models on tap is pumped up by rumors of an EV sports coupe positioned as a spiritual successor to the legendary LFA supercar. A teaser of the Japan Mobility Show concept shows a wedge-shaped silhouette with a long wheelbase, tucked-down nose and raked windshield.
It all feeds into how Lexus wants to distinguish itself from the premium pack through its Lexus Driving Signature, a driving experience characterized by quiet comfort and responsive steering.
The concept previews a 2026 production model that will introduce the brand’s next-generation EV technology. An official press release goes into more detail:
In 2026, Lexus will introduce a next-generation battery EV with a revolutionary modular vehicle body structure, a drastically changed production method, and a completely renewed software platform. A first concept model that explores this approach will be unveiled at the Japan Mobility Show in October of this year as part of Lexus commitment to changing the future of automobiles through electrification.
This announcement was made at the occasion of the LEXUS SHOWCASE event for global media, which was held in Japan on Sept 15 and 16.
