LEXUS UX CONCEPT INTRODUCES RADICAL IMMERSIVE 3-D DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Innovative, 3-D Human Machine Interface (HMI) technology offers a uniquely immersive driver experience

  • Floating, hologram-style driver's instrument binnacle and centre console displays.
  • The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies also on display in the new UX Concept 
  • Lexus UX Concept World debut at Paris 2016 motor show

A new Lexus compact crossover concept vehicle, the UX Concept, makes its world debut at the 2016 Paris motor show, showcasing Lexus’ vision for a compact SUV of the future. The Lexus UX Concept represents a new step in the company's design journey and a redefinition of the driving experience.

The bold UX Concept design is combined with imaginative, forward-thinking technologies to provide occupants with a fully immersive experience. All on-board HMI technology has been designed to offer progressive customers who live and work in an ever-connected environment an innovative, three-dimensional driver experience.

The driver's instrument binnacle houses a transparent globe, floating in the manner of a hologram, in which a combination of analogue and digital information express a functional yet unexpected user interface. And the centre console features a prominent, facetted crystal structure within which a hologram-style display of air-conditioning and infotainment information is clearly visible to both driver and front passenger.

The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies are also on display in the new UX Concept. It features electro-chromatic windows, and the door mirrors are replaced by e-mirror camera housings far slimmer than conventional mirror housing. All switchgear is electrostatic, and housed under transparent covers.

Finally, the fin motif of the A pillar is repeated in a new audio experience for the younger Lexus customer -a demountable sound bar built into the passenger side of the dashboard.

'Our brief was to create a new genre of compact crossover; a vehicle that could create something unique from a customer’s point of view -an innovative, three-dimensional, fully immersive user experience.' Stephan Rasmussen, Designer at European Design Centre, ED2
