Lincoln Star Concept EV Crossover Revealed25
Lincoln has revealed the new Lincoln Star Concept EV, an all-electric design study packed with forward-thinking ideas that preview the luxury brand’s direction in terms of styling and technology, giving us an early look at potential competition for Cadillac.
The Lincoln Star Concept EV is dressed in new design language, incorporating an aerodynamic shape and horizontal lighting cues, as well as unique lattice work design themes. The crossover presents a “cab-forward” profile, with large 24-inch wheels in a covered design, once again used for enhanced aerodynamics.
The new design language continues into the interior as well, and in fact, the designers say that they created the Lincoln Star Concept EV from the inside out, starting with the rear seating. Further lattice work is continued with 3D-printed metal on the A-pillar and D-pillar, allowing for greater visibility, as well as an interesting look. A large digital screen is stretched across the dash, and there’s electrochromatic glass that offers customized glass opacity, similar to the Cadillac Celestiq, as GM Authority covered previously.
As expected, technology abounds, with features like Help Me See and Park for Me. Passengers can also set multiple “moods” that enhance the interior with unique audio, video, lighting, and even scenting.
“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,” said president and CEO, Ford Motor Company, Jim Farley.
The Lincoln Star Concept EV rides on a flexible electrical architecture that can accommodate both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive applications. Looking ahead, Lincoln has announced that it will deliver three new fully electric vehicles by mid-decade, with more than half of its global volume offered as zero-emissions vehicles. A fourth Lincoln EV will launch by the end of 2026.

As soon as I saw the view from the front I thought, damn that window-line sure reminds me of a Ford Freestyle.
Or, a slightly rounded version of the Cybertruck.
These concept cars that depict a cocoon type interior, just sit back and let the car do all the driving. They are neat but, I feel like these should be called transportation devices not cars, Cars are fun and engaging to drive, whatever type of car you find enjoyable. This concept is simply a living room You sit in while going from point A to point B.
Cool but not exactly a car, I am glad I was alive to enjoy the V8 and the glorious sound of ICE because the future looks pretty boring, comfortable but boring
and one other thing, why no Keurig ?? car and coffee pods combined?? now that is a concept I can get on board with!!!!
… agree with this too… being glad too, was from past generations father had a big car of those of 1978 with a V8 and much room inside, when plastic was still in beginning as main material, none computer, none photoshop
the next guys generations seems boring guys, they do not know what is a telephone with disc, neither a turbine of a B747, neither know what is a Concorde Mach 2, neither know what is a SR71 Blackbird Mach 3, they are only those guys of Fast & Furious computer Marvel Television of Netflix, those digital games, none adrenaline
Too much show car and not enough regular car while Cadillac is already starting production.
… agree.. an exercise of Rendering … out of reality… it brings nothing
it’s a concept vehicle showing possible future design direction.
BMW CEO Zipse’s recent statement on this rush to EV’s saying “that going all-In on EVs is not a good idea” – interesting. Apparently not everyone is on board with the wave of EV’s.
How do folks feel about about Cadillac all EV plans by 2030? Is the end of the ICE as we know it just around the corner?
I think the EV push is a bubble waiting to happen. Can’t sell people something they do not want no matter how much the government and woke companies try to shove it down our throats.
Sales reports of electric vehicles say otherwise. Porsche Taycan is their fastest selling model. It has been for a year now.
Tesla Model 3 outsells the C-series, 3 & 4 series, Audi A3/A4 combined globally. Model Y is the worlds fastest selling Electric CUV.
Your statement is false. Just because YOU don’t want an electric car, doesn’t mean others don’t.
What’s the point of showing this if you can’t give full detail of the electric drivetrain? Such a waste of read.
All Lincoln did was showed a concept what a potential EV could look like exterior wise. The Corsair and Aviator has a similar shape in profile.
… Saw those Renderings for an EV… well just liked the front drawer to facilitate the luggage, but seems a smelt down Range Rover
GM still has a two and a half year lead over Ford and Lincoln, producing the Cadillac Lyric in March and probably first deliveries in May 2022. And by 2026 there will be at least three more new GM electrics. Lincoln was great but fell back too much. Even the imports will have models on roads before Lincoln does.
not so fast here – Ford came out with all electric Mustang Mach-E 2 years ago. And the all-important pick-up EV race, the new F150 Lightening is out now or very soon, Chevy’s Silverado EV is late next year. The Lyriq just started production with deliveries in May/June.
“The Lincoln Star Concept EV is dressed in new design language,….”
ANOTHER one? Lincoln has had at least 3 “new design languages” so far this Century.
“The crossover presents a “cab-forward” profile,….”
No it doesn’t! Who wrote this?
And yet, they still have the same problem as Buick, where only old people will even consider them.
Yuk. Not at all attractive and just one more future SUV.
We need the continental ev or town car ev as competitor to the cadillac celetisiq
We need another Continental or Town Car (or Deville and Fleetwood for that matter) period.
Afi and Tigger: Could not agree more.
Stupid GM getting rid of the Volt and CT6 PHEV. So stupid. They should have kept and continued to improve the Volt tech and used it in more vehicles. Should have kept the CT6 PHEV and re-named it DeVille while bringing the all EV (Celestiq?) out as the top line, best of the best, Fleetwood EV.
It says Lincoln on it but nothing about it “says” Lincoln…..if you get what I mean.
This is what makes it great!
A Evoke fell in love with a Chrysler 300 and birthed a elevated wagon. I love the profile, something about how the rear comes together screams retro but I don’t know enough about design to define it. Wonder what platform it is on? VW, Rivian or in house?
It’s a nice concept and a worthy Cadillac rival if ever built. Neither look like typical Detroit design which is a plus in a globalized market.
Ford should begin selling Lincoln under either Ford or another badge. This plus Chinese Evos are game changers for the company.
I hate SUVs and video arcade dashboards and interior “accent lighting” and the seats look like fancier versions of what’s commonly found in the back of a police car… but the shooting brake shape is not bad.
Oh look another futuristic featureless blob on wheels that could come from any current manufacturer if the name plate was covered up.
