LEXUS UX CONCEPT CAR

OUR NEW CONCEPT CAR WILL MAKE ITS WORLD DEBUT
AT THE 2016 PARIS MOTOR SHOW.

We will be unveiling our new concept vehicle, the Lexus UX Concept, at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Created at our Lexus European Design Centre, this car is designed to appeal to a progressive, urban audience living in a connected environment.

The UX Concept uses imaginative technology to create an immersive driver experience, while the interior combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative manufacturing techniques.

The Lexus Press Conference will take place on September 29 at 13:30pm CET at the Lexus stand in hall 4. A live stream of the event will be available below.

THE BOLD UX CONCEPT DESIGN IS COMBINED WITH IMAGINATIVE, FORWARD-THINKING TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE OCCUPANTS WITH
A FULLY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

All on-board HMI technology has been designed to offer progressive customers who live and work in an ever-connected environment an innovative, three-dimensional driver experience.

The driver's instrument binnacle houses a transparent globe, floating in the manner of a hologram, in which a combination of analogue and digital information express a functional yet unexpected user interface. And the centre console features a prominent, facetted crystal structure within which a hologram-style display of air-conditioning and infotainment information is clearly visible to both driver and front passenger.

The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies are also on display in the new UX Concept. It features electro-chromatic windows, and the door mirrors are replaced by e-mirror camera housings far slimmer than conventional mirror housing. All switchgear is electrostatic, and housed under transparent covers.

Finally, the fin motif of the A pillar is repeated in a new audio experience for the younger Lexus customer -a demountable sound bar built into the passenger side of the dashboard.

OUR BRIEF WAS TO CREATE A NEW GENRE OF COMPACT CROSSOVER; A VEHICLE THAT COULD CREATE SOMETHING UNIQUE FROM A CUSTOMER’S POINT OF VIEW -AN INNOVATIVE, THREE-DIMENSIONAL, FULLY IMMERSIVE USER EXPERIENCE.
