The brand-new LM will premiere this year on April 18 at the Shanghai Motor Show. The new “flagship people carrier” will be the first LM vehicle to join the European model lineup, according to the Japanese automaker.
The initial LM has two engine choices, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid and a 3.5-litre NA V6 and options for seven or four seats. The 2023 LM is rumoured to be a six-cylinder MPV that runs on petrol.
We also received a teaser photograph of the MPV to go along with the announcement, and this image clearly illustrates a pinched area at the D-pillar that was missing from the original LM, which made its debut four years ago. The company said, that the new LM would “provide the ultimate in Lexus omotenashi hospitality and luxury.” but for the time being , the company withholds more information.
Toyota might aim to create a radically separate design language from Alphard in order to further differentiate the LM from it. But for the time being, that is only speculation, and we won’t get the full scoop until the official announcement.
Speaking of the Alphard, the all-new model will reportedly make its debut this year as parts of it have already been leaked on the Chinese social media platform Xiaohongshu. Videos of the MPV reportedly being demonstrated during a product training session were published earlier in February.
