Lexus and RCA reveal design concepts for ‘future of luxury mobility’

The Lexus UrbanSwarm adds a sense of luxury to everyday mobility and the firm describes it as “modular and seamless”, possessing the efficiency of mass transportation systems. 

Lexus Neko has been designed with inspiration from Japanese culture, with an ‘insect-like’ exoskeleton. A battery-electric vehicle (BEV), the Neko has two driving modes: conventional driving as an independent vehicle and a sharing mode. 

Fitted with sensor cameras and a recording device, the concept is capable of displaying scenery recorded on previous journeys using 4D technology. 

The final concept is called Lexus #Units and puts an emphasis on digital personalisation and social spaces. It is able to connect virtually to other vehicles and be used as a ‘projector device’ to join parties or concerts virtually. Its design has been inspired by the shape of coastal barriers and it features an adaptable footprint.
