Driving Range & Charge Time 

Built on the brand’s first ever dedicated BEV (battery electric vehicle) platform, both models of the 2023 Lexus RZ are equipped with a powerful 71.4 kWh battery. This powerplant sends power to all four wheels through Lexus’ DIRECT4 all-wheel drive system to ensure sufficient traction in the most challenging of winter conditions that Alberta has to offer. The RZ’s advanced E-Axle system distributes power to the vehicle’s front- and rear-axle mounted motor, delivering ample amounts of all-electric power to whichever wheel requires it most.
