TOKYO -- Lexus pulled back the curtain on its next-generation LS sedan at the Tokyo auto show today with the debut of the LF-FC concept.
The large sedan design study offers a close preview of what the fifth-generation LS will look like when it debuts sometime in 2016 or 2017.
The concept uses a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain to move the rear wheels, as well as an electric motor for each of the front wheels.
“Lexus wants to surprise and evoke emotion with its distinctive design and forward-thinking technology,” Tokuo Fukuichi, Lexus International president, said in a statement released at the unveiling. “The LF-FC expresses our progressive luxury and high-tech vision of a not-so-distant future.”
