The 2019 Tokyo Auto Show premiered the Lexus LF-30 Electrified Concept, which aims to showcase the Japanese manufacturer’s vision for electric drones of the future. The presented show car received an aggressive front end design, while the side of the car stands out with a swift wedge-shaped silhouette with deep embossings on the sidewalls and massive wheels.
The prototype’s interior is accessed through large lift doors. The cabin itself is four-seater, while the Japanese used recyclable materials and natural wood for its decoration. The front panel has several large monitors and a steering wheel, while the functionality can be controlled using gestures (Lexus Advanced Posture Control system).
The concept also boasts a premium Mark Levinson audio system with compact speakers in the headrests of the seats, with the help of which the Japanese have implemented an active noise cancellation system. Part of the glass sloping roof of the SkyGate (above the rear passengers) can be converted into a projection screen that can display navigation maps, video streaming, etc.
In length Lexus LF-30 Electrified Concept reaches 5,090 mm with a wheelbase of 3,200 mm. It is reported that an electric motor is installed on each wheel of the model, which allows the car to be operated in front-, rear- and all-wheel drive modes.
In total, the performance of all units is 544 hp. (700 Nm). This “filling” allows the electric car to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds, while the maximum speed is limited to 200 km / h. The futuristic Lexus received a capacious battery (110 kWh), providing the two-door with a cruising range of 500 km.
Note that under the rear bumper of the LF-30 Concept you can find a wireless charger, for which you need to place a counterpart directly in the garage. As for wired charging, its power reaches 150 kW.
Another feature of the car is the steering, which is implemented here “by wire”, that is, the steering wheel of the car has no mechanical connection with the wheels. Plus there is an advanced autopilot with a parking function (like Tesla models).
The Japanese are not going to launch mass production of the Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept, but the company’s first production electric car is just around the corner – it is promised to be presented at the November Los Angeles Auto Show.
