2017 Lexus LS Concept


2017 Lexus LS  Concept
•10th anniversary of 'F' sports models commemorated with limited editions

Lexus premiered to the world today its automated-driving-capable 'LS+ Concept' concept vehicle at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 *1. It also unveiled at the show limited editions of the RC F and GS F, commemorating the 10th anniversary of Lexus 'F' sports models.

Aiming to contribute to achievement of a world free of traffic casualties, Lexus has been actively introducing advanced technologies based on its Integrated Safety Management Concept *2. And so that all people can enjoy safe and smooth mobility and the fun of driving, Lexus has been developing automated driving technologies. It aims for application in the first half of the 2020s of its 'Úrban Teammate' technologies for automated driving on regular roads.

(concept carz) With its advanced yet dignified styling and automated driving technologies planned for application in 2020, the LS+ Concept was developed as a model that symbolizes Lexus' foresight.

2017 Lexus LS  Concept
As a concept vehicle that suggests the future look of the LS, the LS+ Concept produces a dignified expression as a flagship and indicates the direction of next-generation Lexus design based on Lexus' L-finesse design philosophy *3. In addition to a boldly evolved Spindle Grille, with a large grille shutter that contributes to both improved cooling and enhanced aerodynamic performance, distinctive Lexus foresight is expressed in the LS+ Concept through, among others, partly laser-lit headlamps and rear combination lamps, as well as through electronic side mirrors.
Latest automated driving technologies backed by AI
•Lexus is pursuing a world in which all people can enjoy safe, smooth and untethered mobility through automated driving technologies. Specifically, it intends to make automated driving from entrance ramp to exit ramp on motor-vehicle-only roadways possible by using its 'Highway Teammate' automated driving technologies, which, with an eye toward application in 2020, are featured on the LS+ Concept. On motor-vehicle-only roadways, through appropriate recognition, judgment and operation by onboard systems in response to actual traffic conditions, these technologies can already enable automated merging, lane changes and diverging, as well as keep a vehicle in its lane and maintain vehicle-to-vehicle distance.
•The LS+ Concept can communicate with a data center to update its systems' software, allowing new functions to be added. Meanwhile, AI that learns from big data, including information on roads and surrounding areas, ensures a high level of automated driving. The car, which can grow along with its users, represents a new age for the image of cars to which people can become emotionally attached.

2017 Lexus LS  Concept
Ever since the launch of the IS F in 2007, the development theme of Lexus 'F' sports models has been to create sports cars that can put smiles on the faces of anyone who wants to have fun driving, regardless of skill. This approach has raised the sports image of Lexus. The special-specification, limited-edition vehicles announced today and commemorating the 10th anniversary of the birth of 'F' models are equipped with performance shock absorbers for improved steering stability and lightweight titanium mufflers, further enhancing the driving performance for which 'F' models are known. CFRP (carbon fibre-reinforced plastic) is used in exterior components for greater sports appeal, and body panels are in matte grey. The interior comes in a special colour accented by the 'F' symbol colour 'Heat Blue'. This and other features accentuate the models' distinct character.

Lexus plans to sell 50 units of the limited-edition RC F and 50 units of the limited-edition GS F at Lexus dealers across Japan from around the spring of 2018.
