The Lexus UX Concept brings a “radical immersive 3D driving experience”

Following its preview of the exterior for the new model, which is believed to preview a new crossover to sit under the NX, Lexus has now published an image of the cabin. This is intended to bring a “radical immersive 3D driving experience” across the onboard Human Machine Interface (HMI) technology.

The centre point is a crystal-shaped box in the centre console that provides a hologram-style display of air-conditioning and infotainment information. A hologram is also used for the globe-shaped display in the driver’s instrument  binnacle that will provide driver information via analogue and digital display.

The UX Concept also features electro-chromatic windows and e-mirror camera housings instead of traditional wing mirrors. The concept also has 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,” said Stephan Rasmussen, designer at the Lexus European Design Centre, ED2.
