The Lexus ROV gets a lightweight body and suspension that have been designed for both comfort and off-roading. The body of the vehicle has been designed to protect passengers while preserving enough travel for the front suspension. The front fenders have been designed to offer protection against any stray rocks and mud. The suspension cover connected to the rear hydrogen fuel tank protects functional parts.

On the mechanical front, the Lexus ROV concept embodies the sound of an ICE vehicle as well as the responsive rise in torque. To achieve this, the ROV is powered by a 1.0-litre hydrogen engine that works with a high-pressure tank for compressed hydrogen which is delivered by a direct hydrogen injector. The new hydrogen engine produces close to zero emissions, with a negligible amount of engine oil burned during driving.
