Lexus has shown off the cockpit of its first electric SUV, the RZ 450e, which appears to have the same design cues as the Tesla Model X and Model S.
Judging by the presented photo, the new Lexus RZ 450e will be equipped with a butterfly steering wheel, just like in Tesla. But, as experience has shown, Model S owners are not at all happy with this form. However, some sources claim that such a steering wheel will appear only in some markets.
The RZ 450e is rumored to be equipped with a 71kWh battery that should provide a range of around 400km. They also plan to equip the novelty with an all-wheel drive transmission and electric motors with a capacity of 214 horsepower.
The rest of the technical details and specifications of the new Lexus SUV will be revealed on April 20 during the official announcement.
