New Lexus RZ 450e

The RZ is the first production model to feature Lexus’s new DIRECT 4 system, working with the two e-Axles. DIRECT4, an exclusive Lexus technology, is an intelligent system that constantly balances the traction of all four wheels, automatically and seamlessly distributing drive force. The result is stress-free performance and stable handling, with intuitive operation strengthening the sense of connection between driver and machine. DIRECT4 uses ECU sensors to collect, evaluate and react to a range of factors, including vehicle speed, steering angle, and G forces. From these inputs, it calculates and immediately applies the appropriate drive torque to each e-Axle to maximise grip and traction. The front/rear torque bias can be adjusted from zero to 100 or 100 to zero in milliseconds – faster than any mechanical system. With better communication between the road and steering wheel (or yoke), DIRECT4 also improves steering response.

The new lexus rz 450e is an all-new battery electric suv the first lexus electric vehicle to be developed from the ground up it is not a vehicle that simply adopts battery the electric power in place of a conventional engine it goes much further to realize the exciting potential of new technologies that enhance performance and driving pleasure true to the lexus
