Lexus Gives EV Buyers Traditional Car Peace Of Mind As A Bonus


Lexus RZ Customers Can Rent Other Vehicles Free for 30 Days

Washington DC March 7, 2023; AIADA online reported that although America’s charging infrastructure continues to improve, long-distance travel can still be a headache – at least for those who don’t purchase or lease a Lexus RZ 450e.

To make owning an EV as easy as possible, the RZ 450e comes with access to the Lexus Reserve program that gives customers 30 days of complimentary rentals which can be used over the course of three years, report.

Carscoops reports, the program is dealer-based and owners can use the Lexus app to make reservations. The program is designed to make long distance travel normal and worry-free, as it overcomes the RZ’s relatively short range of up to 220 miles.

However, Lexus advises customers to be aware of possible mileage limitations and to inform the dealer if they intend to take their rental out of state. Rentals can be driven anywhere in the United States or Canada “as long as it is returned to the same dealership you picked up from."

Lexus forbids taking rentals to Mexico and warns against taking them off-road as they’ll be “notified” and “additional charges may be incurred.
