Judging by the concept, the big crossover Lexus will have a length of over five meters with a wheelbase of 2974 mm.

Firm Lexus registered U.S. trademark LQ for “automobiles and structural parts”, the newspaper reports AutoGuide.com. Of course, the application does not indicate which models might get that designation. The most likely option — the flagship crossover that will be built on the grounds of the concept Lexus LF-Limitless 1. There is some logic in that, to distance the newcomer from the heavy of Ramnicu LX.

You see, after LQ and other crossovers of the brand will receive a second letter Q instead of the current “x’s”. It is theoretically possible to do the opposite: rename the current SUV LX to LQ, and released the index of LX to give the production version of the show car Limitless.

Tidy with screens instead of side mirrors will give way to more traditional combinations, but in General the model will retain the minimalistic interior.

What kind of unit working under the hood of the LF-1 Limitless, the Japanese are told not to. They just said that the machine can be equipped with a simple gasoline ice and hybrid installations of various types, and fuel cells on hydrogen, and even purely electric drive. Representatives of the firm said that by 2025 all models Lexus has to be electrified or default, or offer an option of electrification in the form of options (versions). According to unofficial data, the serial version of the big SUV, the Japanese can show in Tokyo-2019.

The centre commented Joe bakaj, Vice President product development, Ford of Europe:

A wide range of simulation tests will allow Ford drivers to be confident that their vehicles can cope with any climatic zone in which they live. Travel to the four corners of this building is like a journey to the four corners of the world, and our engineers will do it around the clock, every day to continue to develop future best-in-class cars.

Michael Steup, head of the center of environmental test of Ford Europe, spoke about the benefits of the research centre:

We see how the windscreen wipers operate at Arctic temperatures, changing engine performance in extreme heat and cold, and even how much snow falls on the driver when he opens the door. This is an engineer’s dream.

In a press release, Ford also does not hesitate to announce that the research centre consumes as much energy as would be enough for 2 400 houses. But Ford buys it from the company, which it produces from renewable sources, so European environmentalists can sleep peacefully.
