How to reach the moon from the earth! The cost of travel to the moon!

Much of the focus on lunar space travel is spent visiting the moon, because of course, we need to get there and establish a base before anything else. But once we are settled, how can we get around our new lunar house? This is the question that Lexus sought to answer with a set of concept design sketches that are figuratively and literally from this world. Some of them we probably wished, so they were out of reach.

Travel time on the moon!

The art and fashion magazine Design Journal invited luxury car marque Lexus and other architects and designers to imagine human transport on the moon. Not only the rugged metal animals that would often be used by lunar pioneers but would also be fashionable and even luxurious vehicles for both entertainment and study. Lexus designers came up with seven such designs and, of course, did not miss the opportunity to incorporate some iconic Lexus design elements, particularly its axles.

Of the seven, Zero Gravity was featured in the print edition of the 15th issue of the Design Journal. Calling it a bike is probably a misnomer because it has neither wheels nor a traditional handlebar like a bike on earth. Instead, it uses the magnetic levitation of the future as well as the concept of reinforced to single.

Journey to the moon!

Other lunar vehicle concepts range from classy sporty to geeky. The Lexus Cosmos above and both flying vehicles, the Lexus Lunar Mission, use clear glass and liquid side bodies, respectively, for passengers to see the lunar world around them or to reflect stars in space. The Lexus Moon Racer is exactly the same, turning the driving on the moon into a new kind of sport, while the Bouncing Moon Roller becomes more fun or nausea or both. Finally, the Lexus Lunar cruiser converts from a rolling vehicle to fly for a flight to ease exploration, while the giant Lexus Lunar is home to six wheels.

Of course, these are just concepts that will require non-existent technology to become reality. However, they can serve as a foundation to inspire the next generation of designers and engineers when building lunar vehicles. Provided that we actually set up camp there first.
