What To Expect

Lexus may introduce a sleek plug-in sports car, according to a recent preview of Toyota's next generation of electrified vehicles. While we don't have official Lexus plug-in sports car horsepower or range specs, an early concept reveal shows an all-new two-door with a McLaren-style look and low-slung stance reminiscent of a Lexus LFA.

While the LFA was powered by a 553-hp V10 developed jointly with Yamaha, Lexus' next high-performance offering will feature some sort of electrification. The Electrified Sport Concept Lexus teased looks like it could be an EV, but this is still speculation. There's a chance the upcoming sports car will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, but that remains an open question here in the U.S.

Separately, Toyota may introduce an EV sports car that could take the form of a next-gen MR2. In terms of the Lexus brand, the only EV currently in the lineup is the Lexus RZ, which appears to be an electrified take on the popular Lexus RX. While they only offer the one EV, Lexus does feature several hybrids and plug-ins, the newest of which is the PHEV variant of the three-row TX SUV.

2024 Lexus EV Sports Car Price & Release Date

The 2024 model year we're using for the EV sports car is just an estimate. We'll know more about its actual release date following an official announcement from Lexus. Toyota recently teased its "Beyond Zero" lineup and its goal to ramp up production by 2030, so both brands will be shifting more towards electrification in the coming years.

Similarly, we'll have a better idea of the electric sports car's starting price when we have a better idea of its specs and features. While we're expecting whatever high-performance electric vehicle Lexus rolls out to be more accessible than the LFA, we wouldn't be surprised if it becomes the most expensive vehicle in the brand's current catalog.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
