the four-seater lexus LF-30 features features gargantuan gullwing doors and a massive glass roof. it uses a quartet of electric motors, one housed within each wheel. together, they generate a peak 536 horsepower (400 kw) and 516 pound-feet of torque (700 nm), enough to carry the 5,070-pound concept to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds.

a large chunk of that weight comes from the 110-kwh battery that delivers 500 kilometres of electric-only range. packed beneath the floor, the LF-30 uses wireless charging technology to simplify daily charging, and AI-based energy management to enable optimal distribution of electric power to both the vehicle and the home, and charging control coordinated with the user’s daily schedule.

the car is packed with advanced features including a self-parking function and a front-door pickup function in which the LF-30 electrified autonomously moves from driveway to doorstep provide an especially high level of convenience. onboard, more artificial intelligence identifies the driver via voice recognition, adjusting elements of the interior like temperature and audio according to their preferences.

the AI can also make suggestions for activities after the driver has arrived at their destination. perhaps most futuristic of all however, is the glass roof panel that a massive touchscreen to in-car functions or the ‘lexus airporter’ drone-technology that uses autonomous control to carry luggage into the vehicle’s cargo area.
