In anticipation of “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” coming to theaters July 21, Lexus today launched two custom ads and a featurette that offer fans an in-depth look at the movie’s Lexus-branded SKYJET, arriving in 2740.
The spot provides the most in-depth look yet at the SKYJET, a single-seat pursuit craft created in partnership with film studio EuropaCorp and driven by Valerian, the film’s main character, played by actor Dane DeHaan. Inspired by the film’s futuristic storyline, the custom ad demonstrates how Lexus envisions performance, style and innovation 700 years from now. Fans will get an extended look at the high-tech spacecraft, which incorporates Lexus’ contemporary design cues, such as an adaption of the signature spindle grille, as it navigates through the intergalactic citadel of Alpha.
In addition to the spot, a new featurette will take fans through the process of creating the SKYJET, including behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Valerian lead actor Dane DeHaan, Producer Virginie Besson-Sillas and Valerian and Lexus designers.
Lexus developed its first turbocharged gas engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, in house. By pairing this new turbocharged engine with an all-new compact luxury utility vehicle, the NX 200t, Lexus injected more fun into the luxury utility vehicle lineup for 2016 model year. Now, the NX is quickly becoming a favorite Lexus model with its smooth handling, bold styling, and surprising attention to detail.
Giving consumers more choices, the NX is also available as a hybrid model, NX 300h. The NX 200t is available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, with F SPORT available for both.
The F SPORT badge on a Lexus tells you to expect a special driving experience. That’s certainly the modus operandi of the NX F SPORT, which looks a bit sinister with its more aggressive grille and front lower bumper. Special wheels, black exterior mirrors and exclusive interior trim and front sport seats round out the package.
The 2016 Lexus NX 300h hybrid compact luxury utility vehicle, in its sophomore year, continues to impress drivers with its surprising attention to detail, dramatic design and smooth hybrid drive. Inspired by performance vehicles, the NX unites the engineering input of racers with the impeccable touch of Lexus luxury in a design that steals the show with the signature Lexus spindle grille and L-finesse design.
The NX 300h carries over into 2016 model year with few changes. New exterior colors include Autumn Shimmer and Blue Vortex Metallic. Drivers can also now opt in for additional peace of mind and connectivity with Lexus Enform products.
Lexus Enform Service Connect (subscription required) allows customers to remotely view information about certain aspects of their Lexus vehicle via the MyLexusandBeyond mobile application for iOS smartphone users or LexusDrivers.com. Information includes maintenance alerts, warning light notifications and a vehicle health report. Lexus Enform Remote is also available for all NX vehicles.
