Toyota to Unveil Futuristic Battery-Powered Concepts at Japan Mobility Show 2023

In the initial half of the year, Toyota and Lexus unleashed a flurry of innovations that shook the automotive world. However, the third quarter saw a relative lull in activity, leaving some to wonder if the automakers had taken a step back. In truth, they were merely preparing for a grand reveal set for the end of the month.

Lexus’ Electrifying Vision

Lexus, Toyota’s luxury division, has set an ambitious target to transition into a fully battery-powered electric vehicle brand by 2035. This audacious vision will soon become a reality as they prepare to launch their “next-generation battery electric vehicle concept model lineup.” The stage for this transformation will be the Japan Mobility Show, a reimagined Tokyo Motor Show, taking place from October 26 to November 5.
