The Story of Lexus

The Lexus journey begins in 1983, when a Japanese team of engineers, designers and technicians were assigned a secret project that required them to reimagine luxury automotive. They were to set new standards of production in order to build an ambitious new vehicle that would outshine the world's best.

Lexus Takumi Craftsman

Takumi Craftsmanship

The Takumi are master craftspeople who spend decades honing their craft to achieve unparalleled dexterity and skill. They embrace mindful repetition to cultivate mastery at the highest level. In doing so, crafting becomes intuitive and second nature. It takes 60, 000 hours to become a Takumi.

Their imprint is imparted on every Lexus through exquisitely crafted details and expressed through artisanal techniques. Inspired by the Omotenashi principle every step of the way, each detail is crafted for ultimate comfort. 

The Takumi’s skilled precision and meticulous inspection ensure quality is maintained to the highest level – nothing less than perfect leaves the factory floor. 

 
 

Brave Design

Each Lexus design is born from the bold, the provocative, the daring.

The process begins with brave ideas. Inspiration is taken from everywhere - from nature, from Japanese ways of thinking, and from the human experience. We cultivate these ideas into visionary concepts and in the end, pioneering production vehicles.

From bold ideas, to amazing experiences. It is this process that defines the Lexus Design philosophy.

At Lexus, the engineers are always striving for better. In the spirit of Kaizen – the quest for continuous improvement – they are committed to reimagining automotive technology, sometimes in ways that are unexpected.  

The technologies found in each Lexus are developed not just to be the most advanced, they are designed around you – to be intelligent, intuitive and to make your driving experience better by anticipating your every need.

The Future

Lexus continues to stay true to its heritage while looking towards the future of automotive technology, design and experiences.
