Lexus LF-30 Concept exterior & interior
Car performance may be paramount, but appearance also matters. Everyone likes to be the center of attraction when they pull over. Lexus understands this need in consumers. Hence, it sticks to its trademark of making cars that look appealing.
The front of the car gives off a McLaren-ish vibe. Same thing can be said about the rear end. Leveraging the unlimited design options that come with electric vehicles, Lexus designed the LF-30 with new proportions.
The doors of the LF-30 take a gullwing style – ushering you into the four-seater. The interior is loaded with latest design concepts, including displays of augmented reality. You will be impressed seeing the steering wheel fall back into the dash as the car is engaged in driving mode. With a length slightly below six meters, the LF-30 is spacious.
The gullwing door is so cool, isn't it?
According to the automaker, the LF-30 will be available in the market early next year, 2020. Price of the car has not been disclosed yet. The electric-powered vehicle is proof of Lexus’ efforts to roll out its collaboration with Toyota in producing battery-electric vehicles, after what can be described as a slow start.
