While Ford is making a big splash in the EV world with products like the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, its luxury brand Lincoln has lagged a little behind its competitors. However, in the wake of the well-received Star Concept, Lincoln is bringing to Monterey Car Week another successful EV called the Model L100.

In this project, the company will replace the steering wheel with a “chess pieces controller”.

THE Monterey Car Week has been a mine of EV firsts this year with openings from Dodge, Acura, DeLorean and a host of other automakers. On Thursday, Lincoln unveiled the Model L100, its futuristic foray into electrified mobility, which takes inspiration from the company's first luxury car, the 1922 Model L.

Like its predecessor, the Model L100 displays a shocking degree of luxury.

The next generation of cell technologies and battery packs will deliver unprecedented energy density, while the steering wheel will be replaced with a jewel-inspired chess piece controller that captures light and depth, redefining the vehicle's controls.

Said the company.

A flywheel would not be used much due to the theoretical capabilities of autonomous driving of the vehicle. Therefore, the company has other ideas in mind.

Concept vehicles allow us to imagine and illustrate how new experiences can come to life with the help of advanced technologies and allow our designers more creative freedom than ever before.

With the Model L100, we've pushed the boundaries to evolve our Quiet Flight brand DNA and change the way we think about the Lincoln designs of tomorrow.

Anthony Lo, Ford's head of design, said in a statement.

Others fantastic design details include interiors with front-row seats that can turn towards rear passengers, a digital floor, the ability to project realistic animated scenes onto the floor and ceiling, a full-length hinged glass roof, and inverted-hinged doors. .

There is still no news on when the production vehicle generated from this "sketch" will arrive. Unfortunately, many of the ideas presented here will inevitably be cut, following the path of, for example, Tesla's Avatar-inspired sketch.
