Electric Lincoln Star Concept Makes Global Debut

Lincoln Star Concept Car

Lincoln debuted the all-new Star electric crossover concept today with a sleek, aerodynamic silhouette and connected cabin experience that hints at the future of the Lincoln brand’s electrified design language.

“This is a shining example of what happens when we combine Lincoln luxury with flexible electrical architecture to create unimaginable experiences for customers,” said Jim Farley, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company. “We can truly revolutionize how people engage with the brand and scale it across an exciting lineup of products that catapult Lincoln into the digital, connected age.”

The new Star features a few traditional Lincoln design cues– most notably the reverse-hinged “suicide” rear doors made famous by the original Continental in the 1960s. The roofline and C-pillar, too, share some recognizably Lincoln DNA also seen in the Nautilus and Aviator SUVs.

And, while the styling represents a solid effort from the Ford-owned luxury brand, it’s what’s under the hood that makes the biggest impact. And it’s not an engine– it’s luggage.

“Electrification is removing many traditional vehicle design constraints, allowing us to reimagine what a vehicle can be,” said Anthony Lo, chief design officer at Ford Motor Company and one of the Star’s overseers. “The Lincoln Star is a study of experiences and themes that push the boundaries of Lincoln design– and it’s just the start.”

Other notable features include a re-configurable seating arrangement, an almost totally flat floor, and the lack of external wing mirrors– one of the least aerodynamic parts of any vehicle. Those mirrors are replaced by small cameras that project the view outwards onto small screens on either side of the panoramic “dash” display.

The illuminated floor and “pool-like” reflections in the doors are a really nice touch, too– something that hasn’t really been seen in other concepts (even if the Tesla yoke-like steering wheel is a bit derivative). We’re fans.
