lexus debuts hydrogen-powered ROV concept with ‘near zero’ emissions


experience the outdoors in style with new lexus ROV

 

lexus has revealed a luxe offroad buggy that’s designed with good looks and high performance. although just a concept for now, the ROV (recreational off-highway vehicle) features a 1.0-liter hydrogen engine that lexus says produces close to zero emissions, with a negligible amount of engine oil burned while driving.

 

‘the lexus ROV is our response to the growing passion for the outdoors and adventurous spirit of luxury consumers’, says head of lexus europe, spiros fotinos. ‘as a concept, it fuses our desire to also develop lifestyle-oriented products with our ongoing research into new technologies that contribute to carbon neutrality. as well as delivering a concept that is thrilling to drive, it has near zero emissions thanks to its hydrogen powered engine.’

LEXUS ROV SPECIFICATIONS

 

the design team wanted to create the kind of vehicle people would expect from a luxury carmaker without losing the rugged performance of an ROV. the buggy has a lightweight body composed of a strong pipe frame, exposed suspension, a protective cage, and chunky off-road tires for driving on muddy tracks. the body integrates the signature lexus grille and front fenders to protect against stray rocks and mud.

 

the buggy’s suspension cover, connected to the rear hydrogen fuel tank, is designed to protect functional parts as well as to express a sense of durability inherited from lexus SUVs. the concept is painted in dark bronze and also features lexus ‘L’-motif front and rear lights and the rear lexus badge. the vehicle measures 3,120 mm (length), 1,725 mm (width), 1,800 mm (height).

 

the interiors pay close attention to craftsmanship with details including a leather steering wheel and a sculpted shift knob and seats, which feature suspension elements that smooth bumps out of the ride. the seats are upholstered in hard-wearing synthetic leather. meanwhile, the dashboard has a simple meter that instantly reads the information the driver needs while the driver concentrates on driving.
