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.

Slightly redesigned front bumper, new graphics rear lights Yes chrome finish trunk lid is all that happens to the exterior. Moreover, in some markets, for example in Germany, these updates are already available for customers.

By 2021, the “blue oval” will send in his resignation a few sedans, including the Fusion — twin brother of our Mondeo. However, Ford officials have hinted that directly Mondeo, the European flagship, the death is not threatened, saying that he still has time to change the generation. But far from it, and in the spring or summer of 2019, we will show the results of the restyling. On the exterior, the reform almost no impact, but the stuffing will be affected severely.

The Mondeo wagon, according to rumors, next year will be the first hybrid. Then to the gas station will have to stop less: related overcomes sedan on a single tank of more than 980 km.

The most important innovation in the cabin — rotating the selector (Hello supercar Ford GT), replacing the traditional gear lever. Also cleaned up the control panel, media hub, Sync 3, and climatic setting.

The selector in the form of washers indicates that the Mondeo for example, “the fourth” Focus will get eight-speed automatic transmission is six-speed (and “robot” Powershift, too). At the same time the model will have a diesel EcoBlue. To liter EcoBoost case, most likely, will not come. Since participation in the Geneva auto show the company refused, we will wait for the premiere of the updated Mondeo on any special event in Europe.

So, powertrain components in the front mounted on a new subframe. The battery is now surrounded by a durable frame with a layer of deformation elements that absorb energy in the event of lateral impact. The protective cover of the battery eliminates the possibility of entering the energy storage of foreign objects.

The inevitable collision will come with three-point seat belts with pyrotechnic belt tensioners, the maximum set of airbag, the mounting of child seats i-Size and Isofix. The movie is worth a look at least in order to remember that EQC pronounced “and-q-si”.

The high-voltage system when accident is automatically disabled, but depending on the severity of the incident fully and permanently or with the possibility of re-launch. The voltage is reduced to a safe level “within a very short time.” If EQC upon detection of the shock is connected to the charge, its process will be terminated automatically, but provide tools to deactivate manually. Overheating and overload repeatedly simulated.

If the airbag is deployed, the emergency services immediately sent an emergency call with exact coordinates. After hitting includes hazard lights and interior lights, the front window lowered for ventilation, the door rasplachivayutsya, the actuator raises the steering column. Specifically for lifeguards on the body there’s an emergency sticker with a QR code of the passport of safety of the machine. The Rescue Assist app for a smartphone will show a 3D map of the EQC.
