Toyota and Lexus have important plans for the sports cars of the future. One of the most interesting projects is that of the LFA which will be proposed by 2030 in a 100% electric version and exceptional performance thanks to solid state batteries.
The Japanese hypercar, however, will not only be battery-powered. According to the Japanese site Best Car Web, the second generation of the LFA will also be hybrid and will arrive in 2025.
According to an employee of Toyota’s Gazoo Racing division, the new hybrid LFA has been in development since before Toyota’s announcement to expand its electric range. The hypercar is expected to use a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 assisted by an electric unit for a total power of around 700 hp.
Regardless of the veracity of these rumors, it is assumed that we will not see the return of the V10. The original LFA had managed to attract many fans thanks to the sound of the 4.8-liter 10-cylinder and very sophisticated technology for the time.
As mentioned, the next step will be a 100% electric hypercar. Presented as a concept and under the name of Electrified Sport, ”Lexus expects performance to be astounding. Solid-state batteries promise a range of 700 km with a recharge and a 0-100 km/h in just 2 seconds to compete with sacred monsters such as the Tesla Model S Plaid and the Rimac Nevera.
