    Would you swap your steering wheel for a yoke? YES or NO? 👇🥚

      No. Yoke seems like a unnecessary marketing gimmick

    Why is the battery so small? I don’t understand Toyota’s reasoning for some of these products. I get they’re betting on Hydrogen but there’s no point putting out half hearted attempts.

    Dunno about these huge wheels. All that unsuspended weight, thin tyre side walls susceptible to pinch flats, hugely expensive tyres. Sure why not for a Ferrari but a family SUV?

    This is the best design interior exterior for Lexus so far.
    other suv brands blunt design big screen over design
    Nothing inside just a wide screen.😅
    White seats like maternity hospital.
    The down side here is the miles range.
    They should do 300-400 miles range.
    Same as their hybrid( Toyota Lexus)
    Has over 300-450 miles range.
    I do like to change my hybrid if the have that range.
    I travel far places throughout Europe.
    I’m 100% confident for my hybrid because has a over 400 miles range( 450).
    Summer or winter.
    Perfect car for me.
    No waiting of charging plans ahead looking charging stations or parkings with charging stations.
    The hybrid can handle both world.

    I’m no Lexus expert, but (to me) the grille looks every bit as large as previous incarnations; and “ugly as”. I would also argue that having to spend another 4k for the inclusion of radiant heaters to extend the range is some serious back-handed logic when you’ve now spent a chunky 66k.

      Its a Lexus. Knowing this brand every inch of the vehicle engineering will be tested to the nth degree.

    The review is good but why give that clickbaity title? It’s terrible. Nothing about the yoke in the Lexus is like the implementation in Teslas (which is just a regular mechanical steering wheel with a yoke instead of a steering wheel). And I’m honestly tired of hearing about Tesla. This Lexus has enough unique features to stand on its own without having Tesla in the headline. And the benefit of steer by wire is it’s more efficient and doesn’t require so much turning. That may be the future of steering.

    I will never understand why people chose larger wheels when it means significantly lower range and a worse ride.

    If only it had a glovebox and an ICE and a vastly reduced price tag…. No, I don’t like the yoke, fine in a racing car but this isn’t…

    Excellent another £60K+, 2 tonne SUV that does 200 miles (realistically)….

    Just one more EV with a poor range and slow charging, what folk want is a real world range of 450 miles even in the cold and 10-90% charge in 15 minuets plus a Tesla topping charging network, but the truth is Car manufactures don’t care about charging once you have left the showroom, except of course Tesla.

    It does not think it is a Tesla as unlike Tesla the build quality is far far superior and it won’t break down.
