Originally unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, the LF-FC is a stylish sedan that previews the next-generation LS. Bound to draw attention, the concept has a massive spindle grille that is flanked by LED headlights, vertical air intakes, and "arrowhead" LED daytime running lights. The concept also has a rakish windscreen, sporty side skirts, and 21-inch aluminum alloy wheels with carbon fiber-reinforced plastic rims. Out back, the LF-LC concept has a unique rear end with a ventilated bumper and distinctive LED taillights.
The concept's interior is loaded with technology and Lexus International Executive Vice President Mark Templin recently hinted the 2018 LS will come with “some cool interior stuff" which could include hand gesture recognition technology.
Besides announcing plans to show the car in Geneva, Lexus confirmed its intention to offer a "high-output fuel cell" vehicle around 2020. The company was coy on specifics but noted "fuel cell displays outstanding energy efficiency, which is about twice the efficiency possible with current generation petrol and diesel engines." The company also highlighted the long range and quick refueling times that are associated with hydrogen fuel cell technology as well as the powertrain's quietness which makes it "ideally suited for adoption within the luxury automotive segment."
