I do know they are hard at work to improve range etc already and they are well aware the challenges this car faces with specs. Again I do feel when it’s revealed there will be some nice surprises.

Thank you for this input mike! It has been the most hopeful phrase in the midst of this apparent mess that has been the launch of BEV's by Lexus!

Like, winter right now? Or winter at the end of 2023?

One would assume this winter means current winter or before March 20th right? But what's weird when you click on the link in pr you get 404 and there is no dedicated RZ page nowhere on the website.

Because in the fight not to stress the batteries, precisely to make them last longer, Toyota has as of today introduced a limitation of two quick charges per day with no limitations on charging power. Unfortunately, this is not optimal for everyone, especially not for the taxi industry, and others."

They are so not ready for this, above is for bz4x and i assume rz as well.

Disaster, basically city driving vehicles, everything above 300 miles you should probably not try with your toyota/lexus bev.

For battery preheating, engineer said it will wait for next generation....

Where did you get that information?

In Europe deliveries will start by spring:

"Later, in the spring, Lexus will start deliveries of its first battery electric vehicle on a dedicated platform, the RZ 450e."

What's the context of this? Is this limitation there from the beginning or did they introduce a new firmware that removes limitations on charging power but limits it to two charges per day? If the user plug in quick charge for just 5min would that count as "one quick charge"?

For now every BEV is a city driving vehicle, unless you like micro-planning trips.
