Sleek and stylish, the futuristic Lexus LF-30 Electrified Concept wouldn’t look out of place in a science-fiction movie. Powered by four in-wheel electric motors fed by a floor-mounted large 110-kWh battery pack that generate a combined 536 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, this vehicle can hit 62 mph in 3.8-seconds and top out at 124 mph (200 km/h).

On a full charge, the LF-30 has a 311-mile range, and once the battery is depleted, it can be fast charged at 150 kW via wireless charging. It comes equipped with AI-based energy management to enable optimal distribution of electric power to both the vehicle and the home, all the while coordinating charging control with the user’s daily schedule.
Inside, the front passenger seat mimics a first-class seat on an airliner, and switches as well as other controls are comfortably within reach. A gesture-controlled display by the passenger seat adds to interior comfort and convenience. Now the rear seats boast artificial muscle technology to mold to their occupant, and can even support various modes like reclining, relaxation, and alert functions. Love music? There’s a Mark Levinson audio system with minute speaker control to establish ideal acoustic spaces for music listening pleasure for the driver and each passenger, complete with speakers built directly into the noise-cancelling headrests.
Onboard AI distinguishes the voices of vehicle occupants, and uses personalized information stored on the driver’s control key to serve as a partner. It facilitates the adjustment of elements of the interior environment, such as air temperature and audio, and the setting of navigation routes and destinations, while also making proposals for activities after arrival. It also understands driver’s preferences and helps them control the suspension and powertrain settings in real-time according to the driving scene,” said the company in a press release.
