New Lexus concept car on display at Mitsukoshi BGC

Lexus at Mitsukoshi is the luxury car brand’s space dedicated to its electrified vehicles in Mitsukoshi BGC. This new Lexus hub, located within the premium Japanese department store, embodies the brand’s commitment to omoteneshi—or unique Japanese hospitality. The space—which has been crafted to express Filipino artistry through native materials and modern interior design—also represents a combination of the best that the Philippines and Japan offer. Here, guests, visitors, and customers can expect to be treated to a luxury experience like no other.

Because Lexus at Mitsukoshi is also the home of Lexus electrified vehicles, it is here where the brand’s heritage, sensibilities, and future design inspirations will be showcased. It is in this setting that the renowned LF-30 Concept is on display for a limited time.

The LF-30 is a distilled version of Lexus’ DNA of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. This concept model also commemorated 30 years of Lexus. When it was first unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, it proudly demonstrated the future of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) with new technologies and features—many of which are already available in the current crop of Lexus electrified vehicles today. Its styling displays the advanced image expected of a BEV, yet with artistic qualities that result in a futuristic form. The LF-30’s interior assertively weaves in autonomous driving and other new technologies that aim to highlight the distinctive Lexus personality and worldview.

The LF-30 showcases features like Advanced Posture control, which offers complete independent control of the front and rear drive wheels and allows appropriate provision of front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive, depending on the driving situation; a steer-by-wire system, which eliminates a mechanical connection to allow more flexible turning control and more precise steering feel aligned with the driver’s intention (and also contributes to a greater sense of openness as the steering controller can be shifted forward and out of the way during autonomous driving); wireless charging, which offers an even more convenient way of charging a BEV; the use of sustainable materials; and the Tazuna cockpit, Lexus’s fundamental human-centered philosophy for the interior which employs next-generation interfaces, such as gesture control and enhanced presentation of vehicle information through AR (augmented reality).

The design of the LF-30 is breathtaking. The shape of the body is fashioned with an elegantly flowing front which transitions into a linear and sharp rear. In addition to the wing-shaped headlights, the sharpness of the rear lights and side air intakes combine to achieve both excellent aerodynamics and cooling performance, resulting in styling fused with function. The window glass, which continually stretches from the front to rear, the muscular fenders, and the wing-shaped headlights form the contours of the Lexus iconic spindle.

The Lexus Electrified vision targets a fundamental leap in vehicle performance, handling, control, and driver enjoyment—even as mobility within our society continues to change with autonomous driving and vehicle electrification.

Visit Lexus Mitsukoshi from March 10 to April 29 for a glimpse of the future of BEVs, and a preview of what’s in store from Lexus Philippines. Mitsukoshi BGC is located at 8th Avenue Corner 36th Street Grand Central Park, North BGC, Taguig City.
