Lexus LF-CC reveals future design direction

Lexus has revealed new details about its LF-CC which it says reflects the design direction what is likely to be a coupe version of its next generation IS.

Exterior and interior elements of the new model show how Lexus is looking to compete with premium rivals.

The LF-CC is equipped with a new 2.5-litre hybrid powertrain that is destined for use in future production models, and which Lexus believes will deliver a combination of sporting performance suitable for a mid-size coupe and low emissions, targeted below 100g/km.

The Hybrid Drive powertrain uses a new, 2.5-litre four-cylinder DOHC petrol engine, mated to a high-output electric motor.

In addition to the engine and electric motor, the system also features a generator, high-performance battery, a power split device and compact power control unit.

Lexus has confirmed this new powertrain will be available across its model range in the future but hasn’t yet specified a date.
