For example, the One Motion Grip electronic control system
According to Motor1.com, Lexus is developing a manual transmission for electric vehicles, and the company already has a working prototype of such a system in the Lexus UX 300e.
Lexus EVs with manual transmissions will have a clutch pedal, shifter and even a tachometer. This is a software system that will allow you to reproduce different driving experiences. Drivers can choose the settings they prefer.
The rumor of a Lexus sports car with a manual transmission appeared in August 2022. Then there was information that an early prototype of the technology limited the power of the electric motor, and shifting gears opened up additional power.
In addition to the manual transmission, Lexus is preparing even more technology for the production Lexus Electrified Sport model. It will receive the One Motion Grip electronic control system. The installation removes the mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels. The automaker claims the setup provides better low-speed maneuverability and highway stability. The Lexus RZ 450e will be the first model with this feature.
The Lexus Electrified Sport will also feature Direct4 all-wheel drive and electronic braking technology. Lexus has yet to reveal details about this system.
The exact characteristics of the power unit of the model are still a mystery. The company predicts that acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take about 2 seconds. The power reserve should be up to 700 km.
The company added that the Lexus Electrified Sport is not just a concept, but a vehicle that will go into production.
