At the Shanghai Auto Show Lexus revealed the RZ Outdoor Concept, giving the RZ a rugged off-road look.

265/60R18 BFGoodrich tires look better than I would've thought on the RZ.

The Lexus RZ Outdoor concept debuts at Auto Shanghai as a more rugged take on the brand's electric SUV. While just a one-off, the company wants it to show what's possible when modifying the model for off-road adventures.

The Outdoor Concept starts with a Lexus RZ450e. The model wears lots of additional lighting, including a bar in the lower fascia, KC lamps on the outer edges of the nose, and an LED strip above the windshield. The hood and hatchback have a gloss-black finish. Most of the body is a sandy beige color that Lexus calls Regolith, and the lower portion is satin black. The rear has a bike carrier.

The Outdoor Concept rides on eight-spoke black wheels with chunky 265/60R18 BFGoodrich all-terrain tires. Lexus also notes that the ride height has a 0.79-inch (20-millimeter) lift.

A few elements are less obvious. There are custom skid plates underneath the front and rear. The window moldings are black stainless steel.

The RZ450e has two electric motors making a total output of 308 horsepower and 321 pound-feet of torque. This lets it reach 60 miles per hour in 5.0 seconds. The top speed has an electronic limit of 99 miles per hour.

The Lexus has a 71.4-kilowatt-hour battery pack that provides a maximum 220-mile range. This distance falls to 196 miles with the available 20-inch wheels. The system can DC fast-charge at 150 kilowatts. The AC charger for plugging in at home is 6.6 kW.

In the United States, the 2023 RZ450e starts at $59,650 after the destination fee. The nicer Luxury trim takes the price to $65,150. If you want every option and accessory for the EV, then the cost tops out at $72,209.

I can't help but think how much that wheel package eats into range.

But with a rating of 220 miles, it's unlikely that it will inconvenience the average owner.
