Lexus LF-ZC & LF-ZL
Lexus unveiled concept models at the Japan Mobility Show 2023, under the theme ‘‘Pushing the Boundaries of the Electrified Experience‘‘, with a focus on redefining the electric car experience and exploring fresh ideas for electric mobility.
Lexus showcased its global premiere of the next-generation Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) concept car, the LF-ZC, scheduled for release in 2026. Alongside it, the BEV flagship concept model LF-ZL was also unveiled, which further provided a sneak- peek into the brand’s plans.
Here are some of the features of the concept models:
Design and looks
The LF-ZC concept car has a modern look with its smooth lines, sits low to the ground, has a lot of space inside, and has a design that combines functionality and aesthetics. The future Lexus electric cars will be designed to fit everything better by minimizing all core components. This makes the LF-ZC more fun to drive, with exciting and enjoyable handling, making it feel like the driver and the car are one.
The modernized Intelligent Cockpit is designed to be practical, allowing customers to access the features they need for an enhanced driving experience. Using advanced AI technology, the next-gen voice recognition system offers a service akin to conversing with a helpful assistant.
Lexus’s Bamboo CMF (Color, Material, Finish) Concept showcases its unique approach to sustainability, emphasizing efficient resource use and a fresh interior design that enhances the customer experience. Visitors can enjoy the Lexus Electrified VR Experience, a virtual driving simulation aligned with Lexus’s customer-focused and community-driven approach.
No details regarding the range, top speed, battery, or pricing of the concept cars are yet available. But, we hope that the company will reveal more specifications soon.

The LF-ZL (Lexus Future Zero-emission Luxury) joins the production concept, offering a glimpse into a future where mobility, people, and society seamlessly connect. This upcoming flagship model is designed to embrace a naturally sustainable, eco-friendly luxury lifestyle, allowing customers to live according to their desires while making positive contributions to the environment and society.
