Lexus revealed the LS+ Concept at the 2017 Tokyo motor show.
The main feature behind the concept will be its automation systems, named Highway Teammate. A 2020 production date is the current target year along with a 2025 target year for the full automation system to be implemented.
Lexus says the car will be able to run autonomously “on specific car-only highways, such as from the on-ramp to the exit of expressways.” They also claim the car will be able to merge into highway traffic, lane keeping, speed adjustments, lane changes, overtaking and maintaining vehicle-to-vehicle distance.
Lexus also reveal that an artificial intelligence system will be able to adapt to surrounding vehicles and driving conditions in less predictable areas.
Over the air updates will allow owners to keep their cars updated without visiting a dealer.
