The campaign is centred around the all-electric concept car, the LF-30 and then reveals the current Electrified range, demonstrating that the innovative thinking behind the LF-30 also prevails in the brand's electrified vehicles today, Lexus says,

The campaign was created with a UK advertising agency, The&Partnership, as well as the award-winning director Jaron Albertin together with the  creative, Academy-Award-winning production studio - The Moving Picture Company (MPC). 

15 years ago Lexus launched the first hybrid electric SUV: the RX and since then there are now 1.9-million Lexus electrified vehicles on the road.

The brand's current portfolio includes electric / petrol models for UX, RX, NX and ES, which along with LS, LC and IS. 

Local market

Locally, the brand has a range are 10 models, and five have one or more hybrid derivatives. 

Lexus Sales and Marketing Vice President, Glenn Crompton says: "Expanding our hybrid line-up was a natural progression for the brand; we have also seen increased customer demand and interest over the recent year. And, the results speak for themselves - in 2019 Lexus commanded a 39% market share of all hybrid and electric sales in the premium sector in SA."

"The greater number of Lexus customers purchasing hybrid vehicles now get to enjoy the luxury of choice, exceptional fuel economy and the dynamism of hybrid driving," Crompton says. 

Brian Bolain, Global Head of Brand Management and Global Marketing, Lexus International reinforces this sentiment: "This future-facing campaign reinforces our position as a visionary leader in electrification. It reflects the pioneering and innovative ethos of Lexus, that has been crafting seamless performance through electrification for over 15 years."
