Lincoln Model L100 is a futuristic concept with aerodynamic aesthetics and cutting-edge technology that creates an immersive interior sanctuary.
In homage to the 1922 Model L – Lincoln’s first luxury vehicle – the Model L100 Concept draws inspiration from the brand’s design heritage while advancing its vision for the future of mobility. The 1922 Model L was lauded for its superior engineering, which served as the basis for the design transformation and the beginning of Lincoln opulence.
The Model L100 Concept employs battery cell and pack technologies of the next generation, which will deliver game-changing energy density and facilitate structural integration by treating the entire vehicle as a system.
“Concept vehicles allow us to reimagine 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,” said Anthony Lo, chief design officer, Ford Motor Company. “With the Model L100, we were able to push the boundaries in ways that evolve our Quiet Flight brand DNA and change the way we think about Lincoln designs of tomorrow.”
