As we move toward a more sustainable future, many automakers have introduced electric vehicles to their lineups. Lincoln recently debuted the Lincoln Star Concept — the brand’s vision for its electric future.
This inspiring new concept vehicle has a striking appearance, inside and out, and features next-gen connected technologies. The exterior is a new take on the Quiet Flight DNA of Lincoln and includes features like rear-hinged doors and a front trunk that offers up a ton of storage.
Inside, the Lincoln Star Concept is absolutely exquisite. The rear seating area resembles a VIP lounge with reclined seats, leg rests, a glass beverage chiller, and three “rejuvenation moods.” These preset moods — Coastal Morning, Mindful Vitality, and Evening Chill — are part of the Lincoln Embrace system and adjust the lighting, scenting, and audio within the cabin.
Of course, as an electric vehicle, the Lincoln Star Concept is expected to be efficient and environmentally friendly. Because it is a concept, it has not undergone road testing for fuel economy numbers, but it was built with the brand’s rear- and all-wheel-drive flexible battery electric architecture.
While this exact model won’t be arriving on our lot, our team at Downtown Lincoln is excited to see how the future of the Lincoln brand is shifting.
Lincoln is taking another step into the luxury eco-friendly vehicle segment. The American premium carmaker has joined together with Rivian to create an all-new electric vehicle, which was previously announced as part of Ford Motor Company’s original investment in Rivian.
This first-ever Lincoln all-electric vehicle will add to the brand’s current eco-friendly lineup, which consists of the Aviator and Corsair Grand Touring plug-in hybrid vehicles. It will be a zero-emissions vehicle that will also offer connected and intuitive technologies to help Lincoln customers enjoy a premium driving experience while reducing their carbon footprint.
“Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles,” said Joy Falotico, president of The Lincoln Motor Company. “This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place — zero emissions, effortless performance, and connected and intuitive technology. It’s going to be stunning.”
The Lincoln battery-electric vehicle will use Rivian’s flexible skateboard platform. It will also be part of the Ford Motor Company’s plan to invest more than $11.5 billion into electrification.
