The reveal of the Lexus Airporter follows Ford patenting a “vehicle-integrated drone” that would automatically deploy from cars and trucks in the event of an emergency.

Ford’s application for drone technology is predominantly focused on providing law enforcement and rural drivers the ability to improve visibility.

The Lexus Airporter was introduced alongside the LF-30 concept at the Tokyo Motor Show 2019.
