This “Luxury Mover” – is the fourth model in the Lexus Next Chapter, following the successful introduction of the all-new NX, RX and all-electric RZ SUVs. It is the latest stage in a complete product line-up renewal that includes new platforms, new powertrains and innovative technologies.
Lexus’ aim was to create a first-class interior that’s as a comfortable as a living room and has all the convenience of a mobile office, a dual quality unmatched by any other vehicle on the market. This is a space where passengers can enjoy complete relaxation and be their natural selves.

First vehicles expected to be delivered to customers from November 2023.
In developing the LM concept, Lexus conducted research with private jet manufacturers and hyper-affluent customers. Their findings confirmed that customers perceive the highest standard of luxury to be when their surroundings make them feel completely rested, both physically and mentally. This quality is rated even more highly than having access to advanced technologies and functions.
Lexus has applied this learning to designing a vehicle where occupants feel just completely relaxed with “no hassle,” personalised comfort. This is the Lexus Omotenashi hospitality principle of making people feel as welcome and cared for as you would guests in your home.
Every detail is carefully considered
Development of the LM, in common with all new Lexus models, has been wholly human centred.
The primary focus has been on the comfort and well-being of passengers with a cabin that takes Lexus’ Omotenashi hospitality to an unprecedented level. Every detail is designed to make passengers feel completely at home and perfectly cared for, whether they want to relax or work while on the move. Seats are designed for perfect support and comfort; the cabin environment is precisely controlled for temperature, air quality and lighting; and there is easy, intuitive access to connectivity and entertainment, including a 48-inch HD widescreen monitor* and bespoke Mark Levinson 3D Surround Sound reference audio system*.
*Only available on selected grades and packs.
Hallmark Lexus ride comfort and quietness
Lexus sought to harmonise driving pleasure and ride comfort in the LM, qualities that can be difficult to balance. In ensuring the right Lexus driving taste was achieved, it was able to draw on the benefits of the GA-K platform’s quality, high body rigidity and drive, braking and suspension technologies that provide good dynamics while preserving ride comfort.
The new LM displays Lexus “Next Chapter” design, developed on the theme of “dignified elegance.” The result is unique and confident road presence with proportions that make for ease of use and manoeuvrability. Overall length is 5,130 mm, width 1,890 mm and height 1,945 mm. The generous width, height and 3,000 mm wheelbase are key to maximising space for rear passengers.
The bold frontal treatment introduces a new Lexus identity with a “breaking” of the familiar spindle grille. The spindle shape has been compressed to create a large lower grille section beneath a slim aperture below the leading edge of the bonnet, linking the headlights. The LM’s flowing lines are accentuated by blacked-out front and rear pillars while an open feel is generated by the large glass area all-round. Easy access is provided by large sliding side doors.
19-inch forged alloy wheels as standard and the colour choices reflect the LM’s prestige, including three deep-lustre “sonic” finishes.
Tanzuna driver's cockpit
True to the principles of Omotenashi, the driver’s cockpit is designed with same attention to detail as other new Lexus models. Thus, the arrangement of the principal controls, meters and information sources follows the Tazuna concept, so the driver needs only to make small hand or eye movements and can keep their attention focused on the road ahead. “Tazuna” is the Japanese word which describes the same sort of intuitive control a rider has of their horse, through gentle adjustment of the reins.
The cockpit layout contributes to the Lexus Driving Signature, helping the driver enjoy a constant sense of control and connection with the vehicle and comfort on any journey. To help make the driver feel at one with the car, the steering wheel being moved closer to the driver and set at a more upright angle, and the position of the pedals and foot rest has been precisely calculated.
7 seater variant
In the seven-seat model, the middle row of VIP seats is prioritised in terms of space and accessible functions and an additional third row is provided with three flip-up seats which can be folded away when more load space is required.
Takumi 4 seater variant
These include a partition between the front and rear cabin housing a 48-inch widescreen monitor and glass panel* that can be dimmed for privacy. The bespoke Mark Levinson 3D Surround Sound audio system has a 23-speaker* array, while cabin comfort is enhanced by a more sophisticated Lexus Climate Concierge* that uses thermal sensors to precisely control and direct heating and ventilation.
Interior.Outward View Key To WellbeingA closed-in feel can provoke car sickness, particularly when viewing a screen or reading. To address this, Lexus has made the LM’s windows as large as possible, so that passengers always have a perception of how and where the car is moving. In addition to the large side windows there are fixed windows in the roof and a clear view ahead through the windscreen.
Safety. Safety For Occupants The latest portfolio includes expanded functions for the Pre-Collision System, including emergency Steering Assist, and the Adaptive Cruise Control, together with Proactive Driving Assist for safer driving in slower, urban traffic. A Driver Monitor keeps a constant check on the driver’s alertness and will bring the car gently to a halt and trigger the eCall system to summon help if there is no response to warning alerts. The doors – including the sliding rear doors - are fitted with Lexus’ smooth e-latch electronic opening system, with Safe Exit Assist to warn of approaching traffic from the rear and prevent inadvertent opening that might cause an accident. With the benefit of over-the-air technology, software upgrades can be seamlessly delivered, ensuring owners enjoy the benefits of the latest developments without having to take their vehicle to a service centre.
Interior.Ultimate OmotenashiWith the new LM, Lexus is delivering “ultimate Omotenashi,” with personalised luxury, comfort and well-being in every detail. The centre partition in the four-seat model has a clear glass upper section, giving rear seat passengers a direct view of the road ahead. This can be opened or closed, and, when privacy is desired, it can be dimmed at the touch of a button. The cabin is illuminated by indirect, ambient lighting in the ceiling and side trim, with further ceiling-mounted spotlights and, in the four-seat model, shadow lighting at floor level. The interior can be enhanced with a wide range of different ambient lighting colour settings, include 14 shades curated in five different mood themes: Healing, Relaxing, Arousing, Focusing and Exhilarating.
