Lexus is preparing for major changes in its range and beyond. This was reported by John Iacono, president of the council of Lexus dealers in the United States, in ainterview with Automotive News. We are not only talking about new models, but also about technological innovations.
Iacono admitted that the cadence in the presentation of new vehicles in the last two years has not found much approval among dealers. This is why Lexus is ready to launch a renewal plan for its brand (here all the news for 2021, the calendar).
The revolution starts with SUVs
One of the new models on the horizon could be a seven-seater SUV that would represent the successor of the LX (based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, but not present in the Italian range). We are inclined to think that we are talking about the LQ electric maxi SUV that will arrive in Italy in 2022.
Also according to the statements of Iacono, Lexus is working on a new LS which, according to the executive, will represent the standard bearer of the House.
In addition to the SUV and the new flagship, Iacono confirmed that Lexus is planning an innovative off-road vehicle. The model would appeal to a niche audience and would be something completely different from what Lexus has accustomed us to.
New electric and new technology
For a brand that has always focused on electrification, after the UX 300e (in our test we will tell you how it goes) another electric proposal is coming. The new model is expected to be based on the recently presented Lexus concept and may already be unveiled in the spring.
Beyond the updates in the range, the Japanese manufacturer will get to work on a new version of its infotainment system. According to Iacono, the next-generation on-board technology will be an innovation for the entire sector.
