The full-electric Lexus RZ will soon make its global debut on April 20. It has been teased several times in the past, even making an appearance during the Toyota press conference about the brand’s electrification plans.

Not much is known about the vehicle at the moment, aside from it possibly using the e-TNGA platform that also underpins the Toyota BZ4x and Subaru Solterra EVs. But Lexus has shared a photo of the car utilizing a yoke-style tiller, a connection that is shared with the LF-Z Concept unveiled last year.

If you’re impatient, Lexus has also released full shots (which you can see above) of the RZ shortly after its surprise debut at the electrification press conference. You can see how similar it looks to the LF-Z with its aggressive angles and body styling, but of course, expect this to be slightly tweaked in the final version. We’re just hoping the yoke-style tiller will be easy to operate.
