Lexus Unveils Concept Flagship Crossover

Many new vehicles and technologies were revealed during the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. During the week of the auto show Lexus revealed a concept vehicle of its own, the LF-1 Limitless concept. Aimed towards their 2025 electric vehicle goal, one that aims to create all-electric vehicle options within the Toyota brand, the Lexus LF-1 concept supports an all-electric powertrain.

Aimed at competing with modern crossovers such as the BMW X7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept is viewed to be Lexus’s next flagship luxury crossover. The concept behind the LF-1 Limitless concept is that it will remain a crossover while retaining the performance and luxury that current sedans are able to provide.

During the Detroit Auto Show, the concept was presented with four seats. However, it is expected that the crossover will be produced with three rows of seats at the time of its release. Lexus stated that the LF-1 could be powered by a variety of hybrid options and possibly an all-electric option.

Whether the LF-1 Limitless concept is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, hybrid, or all-electric power source, the unveiling of the concept is testimony that manufacturers will need to offer a variety of powertrain options in the near future to meet their electric vehicle goals.
