Lexus LF-30 Concept Breaks Cover with Big Gullwing Doors
The concept vehicle creates 536 horsepower.
Lexus stunned the crowd at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show with the LF-30 concept, exhibiting the company’s future EV ambitions. Planned for the year 2030, the Lexus LF-30 concept boasts huge gullwing doors and a big glass roof stretching all the way from the front to the rear.
Although it does not look like a big car, it is actually large with a length of 200.4 inches, a width of 78.5 inches, and a height of 63 inches. It has a 126 inches wheelbase and weighs 2,400 kilograms. Admittedly, it is very heavy for an EV, but this weight is logical, taking into account four electric motors. Every wheel has its own motor, which gives the LF-30 liberty to go front-, rear-, or all-wheel depending on the situation.
The concept vehicle has a 110-kWh battery pack fitted in the floor, creating 536 horsepower and 700 Newton-meters of torque, collectively. This considerable power enables the Lexus LF-30 concept to hit 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds only. The top speed stands at 200 km/h. Lexus says they have designed it to deliver 500 kilometers of range (WLTP cycle) and charge on a 150 kW charger. Notably, the automaker has allowed wireless charging for the LF-30.
Other remarkable facilities offered by the concept are a steer-by-wire system, adjustable opacity of the side windows, and lack of B-pillars for more comfortable access inside. The interior is futuristic boasting a remarkable front seat and a big display screen to control different functions of the vehicle. Additionally, above the rear seats, passengers can use the “SkyGate” display window to get information on navigation and videos or see the real sky.
