Lexus Reveals DIRECT4 Electric Drive Control

2020 Lexus RX Hybrid | Mishawaka, IN

Lexus is committed to electrifying its lineup. Late last year we got a glimpse of that electric future with the LF-30 concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. This concept showcased the new Lexus Electrified strategy with a focus on more performance, better handling, and more driver enjoyment. Now, Lexus is showing off the next step with DIRECT4 electric drive control.

DIRECT4 is designed to be used in battery electric and hybrid electric vehicles. It controls braking force and torque delivery to all four wheels. The system monitors the driving conditions and the driver’s input to adjust the balance between the front and rear wheels. This helps deliver a responsive and exciting driving experience.

The DIRECT4 system will also help enhance the premium experience you should get while driving a Lexus. This will be part of the new Lexus Driving Signature standard that will help define the future of performance within the Lexus lineup.

Here at Jordan Lexus of Mishawaka in Indiana, we are looking forward to this automaker’s electric future.  Stay tuned to our blog for more details about the other concept that Lexus will soon release. In the meantime, stop by Jordan Lexus of Mishawaka to test-drive one of the current progressive models we have in stock, such as the RX, NX, and LC hybrid.
