Tokyo Motor Show 2017
Lexus LS+ Concept hints at wilder styling and semi-automous techLexus hopes to have a semi-autonomous Highway Teammate system on the road in 2020.
[MUSIC] Lexus has just released a new LS Sudan for the 2018 [UNKNOWN] year but that hasn't stopped the luxury auto [UNKNOWN] from giving us a sneak peak at what the next generation of its flag ship Sudan would look like here at the Tokyo motor show with the debut of the LS+ Concept Styling is definitely a far cry from past Lexus models that were bland and boring with a massive, and I mean massive, spindle grill and crazy light treatments up front. Out back, things aren't quite as wild with fancy lighting but styling is overall close to what the current LS looks like. The aspect of the concept that we will likely see in production before all else is the semi autonomous highway teammate system that can control the car on the expressway. Keep it in its lane and keep it sufficiently spaced from other cars. Unlike other systems that do the same thing Lexus says its system can also handle emerging and diverging cars and also learn as it goes Lexus hopes to put Highway Teammate on the road in 2020. If that happens, don't get surprised if it ends up on the current generation LS. [MUSIC]
