The interior is quite simple and minimalist, with the tachometer and a digital dashboard for speedometer and information somewhat sparse about the vehicle. No screens, Android Auto or extra technologies. The steering wheel is finished in leather, as well as the sports seats.

The interesting thing however in this vehicle is that it works with hydrogen. Lexus has not given too many technical details about the engine, but ensures that it works like a gasoline, with a 1.0-liter engine. It has a high pressure tank for compressed hydrogen and direct hydrogen injection. Its emissions, according to Lexus, are “close to zero.”
