The brand has been selling hybrids for a long time now, but it hasn't offered a proper electric vehicle before.

Lexus has teased an all-electric concept, set to make its debut at the Tokyo motor show later this month.

The as-yet unnamed BEV concept will offer "a glimpse into Lexus' future vision, which caters to consumers who are equally passionate about driving and uniquely crafted luxury experiences".

Previously, Lexus has confirmed its first pure-electric vehicle will be a boxy hatchback designed to thrive in crowded urban environments like Tokyo.

Some of the car's styling elements will be borrowed from the 2015 LF-SA concept (above), but it'll be updated to better reflect the production model.

When it launches in production form, the urban hatchback will be one of the 10 pure-electric vehicles Toyota (and Lexus, by extension) plans to launch by the early 2020s.

Reports have suggested the range of electric vehicles will be based on a shared platform, currently under development. Toyota has also invested heavily in solid-state battery development, but it's unclear when the technology will appear in one of its production cars.
