Over the years, the LA Auto Show has provided automobile manufacturers with an opportunity to show off vehicle concepts that not only reflect that brand and its current mission, but also represent the company’s design and technological future; 2019 has proved no different. Over the week, companies like Karma, Lexus, and Hyundai have debuted some of their more futuristic models to date.
Lexus’s fully electric LF-30 concept’s show-stopping feature is its four in-wheel motors that together generate 536hp. With over 300 miles of range, similar to other electric concepts that have been revealed over the course of 2019, this concept — like the Space Vizzion — demonstrates the practicality of the next generation of EVs. While a handful of other concept models made appearances at the show over this week, they were simply souped-up versions of previously announced vehicles that show various models’ ability to be customized with accessories to suit each individual customer. The original concepts above, however, represent not only each brand’s vision of their respective futures, but provide a look ahead at the automobile industry as a whole.
