Lexus of Richmond’s sales consultants, technology specialists, service advisors, technicians and managers all recently completed training sessions for the launch of the Brand New vehicle, the Lexus UX! This training session took place over the course of two weeks at the Toyota Training Center in Maryland.
This training included a classroom discussion/question & answer, hands on demonstration of new technology, and comparative driving courses. We were able to drive three competitors’ vehicles in order to understand the UX’s target market. We drove through the city in each vehicle, and then drove through a course set up with extremely tight turns and corners to truly understand how our new vehicle stacks up with the competitors. The easiest to maneuver was of course the UX with its 34.2 foot turning radius.
The technology demonstration was focused on Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa. Apple CarPlay is a smarter and safer way to use your phone while driving. The car’s display mirrors your phone screen. By connecting your iPhone, you gain access to your navigation, phonebook to make/receive calls and texts, and all your music. With Amazon Alexa you are essentially gaining an assistant at your fingertips in the vehicle with you. You can ask Alexa to play music, find directions, find traffic info or check the weather. You can even ask her to tell you a joke or to play jeopardy.
