Lexus design concept teased, heading to Tokyo Motor Show

Lexus design concept teased, heading to Tokyo Motor Show

Snapshot: Could preview the next generation LS full-size sedan due 2016.

After showing us their full-size IS origami replica, Lexus is back with a teaser image depicting their brand new luxury design concept which will receive its world premiere on October 28 during this year’s edition of the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. We only get this single image for the moment that shows a triple headlight layout along with the LED daytime running lights which have previously seen on recent Lexus models such as the NX and RX crossovers.

Little else is known about the concept, but according to sources close to Lexus this will be a preview of the next generation LS full-size luxury sedan which is expected to go on sale sometime next year. This rumor makes sense taking into account the current LS has been on sale for close to 10 years so it’s in dire need of a replacement since all of its rivals have received a new generation since then, with a new Audi A8 arriving very soon.

Expect the new LS to be bigger and more luxurious than its predecessor and it will allegedly be offered with a V8 engine pushing out 465 bhp. The same eight-cylinder motor will also be offered as a hybrid since the conventional engine will be teamed up with an electric motor to boost output to approximately 535 bhp.

Interestingly, some people are saying that Toyota’s luxury marque is also cooking up a fuel cell LS with an adaptation of the hardware arrangement installed in the recently launched Mirai. By “adaptation” we mean that it’s going to be an upgraded iteration of the Mirai’s setup which is actually logical given the significantly higher weight and size of the new LS which in this fuel cell variant is expected to offer a 384 km range, not too bad for a full-size sedan that will allegedly weigh about 2,100 kg.
