The Lexus RZ: Bringing LEV Performance to Wakanda

December 21st, 2022 by

As we anticipate its arrival in 2023, The Lexus RZ offers itself as one of the most exciting luxury electric vehicles available. Lexus’ first fully electric vehicle is a stylish SUV that marks a bold step forward for the brand. In announcing the vehicle, Lexus reaffirmed their commitment to achieving a carbon-neutral future. But the excitement surrounding the RZ does not end with its clean electric drivetrain. The RZ itself promises to be one of the most advanced vehicles on the road starting next year.

To punctuate the excitement for the Lexus RZ, Lexus has teamed up with none other than Marvel Studios in a promotion campaign. In a new promotional video for the latest MCU film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the RZ plays a featured role. The short promotional film marks the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Lexus vehicles. The two sides first teamed up in 2018 for the release of the first Black Panther film.

Lexus RZ: An Electric FutureLexus RZ: Bringing LEV Performance to Wakanda 

In the video, titled “An Electric Future”, members of Wakanda’s elite force, the Dora Milaje, calmly and quietly evade their pursuers. They do so while cruising through the city streets in the all-new Lexus RZ.

Starting with an establishing shot of the vehicle, its sleek and futuristic design stands out on screen. From the moment the Wakandan warriors start the car, its electric power is on full display. We see the RZ’s electric charger, and then feel its silence when started up. The smooth and quiet ride of the electric RZ is contrasted with the enemy’s noisy, revving mechanical engine.

Even during a chase, the atmosphere inside the RZ remains peaceful and quiet. The RZ’s slick navigation, sporty ride, and pristine luxury interior are all on clear display throughout the sequence.

The promotional film is the perfect way for the Lexus brand to embark on the next major chapter in its history. While Lexus has an expensive and successful line of hybrid electric vehicles, the RZ signals its larger commitment to an electric future. And what better way to announce that commitment than by partnering with one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year? 

The flashy Lexus RZ looks and feels right at home in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Its stunning frame and minimalist interior are a perfect fit in the world of superheroes. And the clean electric energy of the RZ is the ideal symbol of a brighter and better road ahead.

The fully-electric all-wheel drive RZ will feature a 71.6 kWh electric battery, and an estimated range of 220 miles. Lexus has also equipped the RZ with all the best and latest technology. Drivers and passengers can access everything they need from the RZ’s 14-inch infotainment touchscreen display.

The future is bright for the Lexus line of vehicles, and that future begins with the Lexus RZ. Look for the Lexus RZ, available in early 2023, at Ray Catena Auto Group!
