The folks at Japanese auto giant Lexus are upping their electrified efforts by announcing and outlaying its plans for the future. In a statement issued today, Lexus confirmed the introduction of 20 new vehicles by 2025 – including world premieres of two models later this year.
As part of this, more than 10 new electrified vehicles will be introduced by 2025 as part of the brand’s ‘Lexus Electrified’ vision.
According to Lexus, their ‘Electrified’ vision adopts a portfolio approach to electrification. This will include battery electric vehicle (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and other electrified models in line with the needs of each country and region.
The first Lexus BEV, the UX 300e, will launch in Australia in November 2021.
How these models will be split between sedans and SUVs is yet to be detailed, but Lexus will pursue the possibility of rolling out models such as sports vehicles.
Meanwhile, by 2050, Lexus aims to achieve carbon neutrality throughout the lifecycle of its entire model line-up – from the manufacturing of materials, parts and vehicles, to vehicle logistics, to the final disposal and recycling of older vehicles.
