Right now the majority of electric cars look and feel like a regular gas-powered car. However, Lexus has recently taken the wraps off their concept electric car, known as the LF-30, and if this is what the future of electric cars could look like, then you can definitely count us in as being extremely interested.
Given that this is a concept vehicle, design-wise we suppose it’s fair that Lexus went to town on it and gave it a pretty extreme look. We’re talking about sharp edges and gull-wing doors that helps to create that futuristic, but potentially achievable look. It even comes with a glass roof so that the car will be able to let in sunlight naturally.
Oki Japan was demonstrating this eye-catching cockpit at CEATEC 2019, and it goes a bit against the grain because it is supposed to let humans help robots.
The industry is trying to move fast towards a world where robots are fully autonomous and don’t require human intervention. While this may happen at some point, the reality is that we’re not quite there yet, and it’s not obvious when we will eventually get there.
