The LC was first revealed at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Its styling, performance and craftsmanship position the vehicle as one of Lexus’ flagship variants. The LC also utilizes Lexus’ new architecture that promises enhanced dynamic capability.
Inspired by the acclaimed LF-LC concept that debuted in 2012, the LC represents a shift in Lexus’ engineering processes and design ideologies, and marks the beginning of a new phase for the Lexus brand. Its outstanding visual appeal has been unanimously praised and recognized by professionals who granted LC two EyesOn Design awards for Best Production Car and Best Interior Design at the 2016 NAIAS.
Lexus will also display the LF-FC concept at this year’s Geneva Motor show. LF-FC is a visionary new vehicle that offers a peek into the design and technology direction of Lexus’ future flagship sedan. Initially revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor show, the LF-FC is powered by a high output fuel cell system. It also features an advanced touchless human machine interface as well as automated driving technologies.
Interior-wise, the Lexus LF-FC features a cabin that has been designed in two sections, top and bottom. The top conveys a sense of openness, allowing the driver to concentrate on the road ahead without feeling constrained. The rear seats have been designed for those who enjoy being driven, offering a reclining feature and plenty of head and knee space. High-quality aniline leather on the seats, doors and dashboard enhances the level of luxury of the interior.
The Lexus LC 500h along with the LF-LC and LF-FC will be exhibited from 1 March at the Lexus stand in Hall 4, Palexpo.
