Lexus has unveiled the LF-30 Electrified Concept at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, which forms part of the company’s “Lexus Electrified” vision. The show car is certainly striking to look at, and that’s before we get into the technologies the Japanese carmaker crammed into it.

Subtle isn’t the right word to describe the concept’s design, which the company says “embodies the vision of Lexus’ electrification.” It’s a very aggressive look, with a mix of sharp angles and contours around a large cabin, which is possible thanks to the low positioning of the battery as well as the in-wheel electric motors, of which there are four. Signature cues like the spindle grille are present as well, while gullwing doors and a Voltaic Sky finish that employs a metal-infused coating technique add to the visual drama.

Breaking out the spec sheet, the LF-30 isn’t a small vehicle either, despite what the images suggest. The concept measures 5,090 mm long, 1,995 mm wide, 1,600 mm tall, and the roomy cabin is justified by its 3,200 mm wheelbase.

With everything put together, the EV weighs 2,400 kg, and is propelled by the aforementioned in-wheel e-motors that provide 536 hp (400 kW) and 700 Nm of torque. Performance-wise, the vehicle will get from a rest to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and tops out at 200 km/h.

The battery is just as substantial, with capacity of 110 kWh, and Lexus claims a WLTP-certified cruising range of 500 km. Wireless charging technology is used to recharge the battery, and the company claims a charging speed of up to 150 kW.

Another driving-related technology present here is Lexus Advanced Posture Control, which regulates the output from the electric motors to ensure the vehicle’s posture isn’t disruptive to occupants, in a similar fashion to Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control system.

The Tazuna-themed interior is just as mesmerising as the exterior, and while the vehicle has autonomous driving capabilities, the concept still comes with a steering wheel. A wraparound cockpit places functions like the navigation, infotainment and drive mode systems within easy reach, while the passenger has access to a separate display with gesture control support.

In other areas, there’s a Mark Levinson audio system, while overhead is a gesture controlled SkyGate display window that features augmented reality to display various types of information, such as a realistic star-filled sky, user-favourite videos and even navigation. As this is a Lexus, premium, sustainable materials are used, including Yakisugi (charred cedar) and recycled metals.

Lexus also touts an onboard AI that deals with energy management as well as providing occupants with a more personalised experience when inside the vehicle. There’s also the Lexus Airporter drone support vehicle, which is capable of carrying out certain tasks like independently transporting baggage from a household doorstep to the vehicle’s luggage area.
