Just what the world has been waiting for! A luxury EV sedan! Wow, why didn't anyone think of that before now?

Don't mind me, I'm just annoyed that 9 years after the Tesla Model S, you still can't buy a full size EV SUV, nor any EV which has a 30A/240V (7 kw) output that could act as a home generator for a prolonged power outage in a pinch. Grumble, grumble...

Hopefully this includes their solid-state battery.

I'd like to see the industry advance instead of just coming along years later and saying "oh yeah, me too".

They can keep iterating their sculpted body panels, paint jobs, and "luxury" appointed interiors in CGI and marketing materials.

The Toyota>Lexus continuum keep-up-w/Joneses brigade will finally have something to contemplate in their own ecosystem.

The website says Lexus "will unveil its future vision, along with a new concept that symbolizes its intentions for the future and marks the beginning of the next generation."

I don't think folks should line up at the dealership just yet.

The teaser video shows the car still has that giant Predator grille. Either this thing is a hybrid or it's just going to look ridiculous (Or both).

Solid state is still a couple years away from the consumer market. Maybe more.

More EV's the better, it will force Tesla to up their game on interior quietness, etc. Lots of manufacturers coming out over the next year or so that will challenge Tesla, and all their models... It's going to be exciting.
We hear this every year over many years now. For real change, the old OEMs must go after their own gasoline vehicles, not against Tesla. The main question asked should be what model does this EV replace? IS? ES? GS? LS?

like more Toyota/Lexus vehicles, we can safely predict that this one will be no less ridiculous that others in the past 10-15 years

It was a marketing update with lots of CGI.
20 models in 5 years.
Test drive with a mule. Independent four wheel drive for torque vectoring like Rivian.

Comment: The host that was driving the mule needs to move closer to the steering wheel.
