Branch showed the fate of his electric car in the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019 with the debut of his LF-30 concept.
The Lexus LF-30, according to the manufacturer, is the sum of all the visions that the company has of how it will have to evolve, and which will find complete affirmation exactly 10 years from now.

The car is equipped with all the most advanced solutions (automatic parking, and self-positioning next to the sidewalk for loading luggage).
Autonomous driving is the noblesse oblige, especially for a luxury brand like this. And on board, AI identifies each of the vehicle's occupants with voice recognition, adjusting audio, climate, seat position according to the characteristics of each.
Artificial Intelligence can also suggest activities to be carried out at intermediate points of the journey or once at the destination. And if we really want to push the amazement further, the glass roof that is all touch on the inside and the "Lexus Airporter" drone technology that transports luggage alone with a "companion" drone that exits the vehicle ...
