Lexus claims that no other vehicle has come to the luxury segment as a “flagship crossover” before this – the LF-1 Limitless Concept. With many similarities to the Lexus RX and NX lineup, which are already best sellers in the segment, the LF-1 Limitless is designed to accommodate any powertrain at the disposal of Toyota-Lexus, including plug-ins, hybrids, fuel cells, or gasoline options.
The “Limitless” in the concept’s name refers not only to the powertrain possibilities within the crossover, but also to the technologies that can be incorporated into it. These possibilities include hands-free operation in “Chauffeur mode,” something made possible thanks to the by-wire controls of the Lexus LF-1 concept, which has all steering, braking, acceleration, lighting, and signaling controlled without need of using pedals or the wheel.
Hands-on driving is also a new experience, Lexus designers assure, thanks to the steering-mounted controls for … well, everything.
