This model also uses a driving system autonomous with artificial intelligence that aims to reach the production models in the year 2020 and which is currently in testing phase. According to informs the own Lexus, this system would be able to take control and drive with safety on motorways, performing by himself, lane changes, overtaking and maintain the safety distance with the car ahead of us.
