Lexus Luxuriates A Toyota Alphard Minivan, Calls It Lexus LM

In the modern history of automobile, a minivan is never a ‘cool’ ride. And by ‘minivan’, we literally mean cars that actually looked like a van. The facts have presented itself, but yet, Japanese luxury marque Lexus appears to be undaunted and decided to create a luxury minivan (or MPV, or Multipurpose Vehicle) which it calls Lexus LM. Unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show 2019, the Lexus LM is not designed from the ground up to be the marque’s first luxury minivan, though.

Watch How Lexus Applies UX’s Safety Tech To Protect Quarterbacks

Lexus really knows how to tickle the hearts of American who mostly can’t enough of American Football with a gleeful solution to this season’s controversial “rouging the passer” rule.

Honda may have jet aircrafts now, but competing automaker Lexus just up the ante by dishing out a spacecraft. Ok, we exaggerated.
