What’s the Hype About the Lexus LF-30?

The Lexus LF-30 electric vehicle was one of the standouts at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The concept car features a radical design and powerful output.

The LF-30 is Lexus’ entry to the EV bandwagon as more stringent laws for automakers are being passed by their major markets such as Europe and China. They are gradually shifting to electrify most of their vehicles to cut back carbon emissions and please government rule-making bodies.

The LF-30 is powered by four electric motors that produce a total of 536 hp and 700 Nm of torque. The motors are fed by a floor-mounted 110 kWh battery pack positioned at the center of the car to keep its center of gravity balanced and to offer better handling.

On paper, the concept car can go from 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds. Meanwhile, it can clock up to 124 mph in terms of max speed.

At full charge, the LF-30 has an electric range of 311 miles based on the WLTP cycle. This can be juiced using at 150 kW even without a plug-in charger as the car is also capable of wireless charging.

Outside, the Lexus EV boasts a futuristic design with its bullet-like form, huge gullwing doors and glass roof that flawlessly runs from front to rear. The same theme can be said about its interior design. The LF-30 has front passenger seats inspired by those of a first-class airliner. Then it has gesture controls, and the glass roof doubles as a SkyGate display with augmented reality features. The thing that makes it truly innovative though is the Lexus Airporter that offers drone technology support in carrying the user’s luggage going to the auto’s cargo bay.

For those who are eagerly anticipating the production version of the Lexus LF-30, well, we have bad news for you all. The car will not be rolling out from Lexus dealerships at least until 2030.
