Lexus LF-FC beautifies 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Snapshot: A stylish concept, the LF-FC previews the next generation Lexus LS flagship sedan.

Perhaps the most beautiful car to be exhibited at the ongoing 44th Tokyo Motor Show, the Lexus LF-FC is an elegant full-size sedan that previews next year’s all-new LS range-topping model. In conceptual form, the vehicle has a generous overall length of 5,300 mm and is 2,000 mm wide while standing 1,410 mm tall. As you would expect from Lexus, it has a huge spindle grille and LED L-shaped daytime running lights which make it look imposing when viewed from the front.

The slightly inclined roofline mimics a four-door coupe and ends at the back where there are LED boomerang-shaped taillights and an aggressive bumper. It sits on large 21-inch aluminum wheels that come with CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) rims to shave off weight.

The Lexus LF-FC adopts an all-wheel drive system thanks to a sophisticated fuel cell system that has a “high output” and sends power to the rear axle and to the two front in-wheel motors. As for the fuel cells stack, this one has been installed at the back while the hydrogen fuel tanks has a T-shaped formation to enable an even weight distribution.

As far as the interior cabin is concerned, you probably have noticed there aren’t any conventional buttons and dials as Lexus has replaced them with several touchscreen displays from where the driver and the passengers can have access to all of the car’s functions. There’s even support for gesture controls thanks to the small holographic image projected on the center console from where the system registers the gestures for modifying the ventilation and audio.

The next generation Lexus LS will go on sale sometime next year and word on the street says there is also going to be a fuel cell derivative which will likely have a lot in common with this LF-FC concept, but probably won’t be available from day one.
