Lincoln unveiled the Star Conceptan electric SUV that anticipates some of the design elements that we will find inside its future battery models. As we know, Ford’s luxury brand intends to launch four new electric models by 2026. In addition, Lincoln wants to ensure that by 2025, half of its sales will be zero-emission vehicles. And by 2030 it aims to become an electric-only brand.
Lincoln Star Concept lays the foundation for the American brand’s next electric vehicles by introducing a new design language. Unfortunately, the manufacturer did not want to share information regarding the powertrain. Therefore, he did not say anything about the engine, battery, range and performance (the platform, however, provides for the possibility of using one or two engines).
Electrification is removing many design constraints of traditional vehicles, allowing us to reimagine what a vehicle can be. Lincoln Star Concept is a study that pushes the boundaries of Lincoln design – and that’s just the beginning.
The American brand wanted to emphasize a lot the work done for the cockpit. Thanks to the specific platform for electric cars it was possible to reinvent spaces. The concept uses design, light, displays, scents and sounds to create an engaging experience for its occupants.
Rear passengers can count on large reclining seats that also have space to store small items. There is not even a small fridge. L’lounge-style interior also introduces new premium materials. The dashboard has a very clean and essential design. In particular, the large display that runs along the entire dashboard stands out, offering access to a series of digital content in addition to the classic driving information.
Star Concept introduces the new Lincoln Intelligence System digital assistant as well as new advanced driver assistance features. Special feature, this concept car has a front trunk (frunk) visible through the hood thanks to the electrochromic glass. To access it, the hood lifts and a part of the front of the car moves forward “like a drawer”.
