Lexus LF-Ch Hybrid Premium Compact Concept 2010 - hi res




Nothing new to see stylistically. Most of that stuff has been appearing on European hatches for years -- the hidden door handles were on the Alfa 147 8 years ago (and the 156 before that!). nederina I do hope that you realize Hybrids and Series Electric Hybrids are the way of the future if you like it or not. As far as your "a Lexus hs250 hatchback - which is in fact a Prius, and a Prius is in fact a corolla." comment is concerned I also hope you realize the Lexus HS 250h has nothing other than the Hybrid synergy drive in common with a Prius and also that the Prius has NOTHING at all in common with the Corolla. Big car companies of course do a lot of platform sharing/cost cutting but frankly you’re just reaching....... if only they would produce something that looks like this sketch. the only production lexus i remember thinking was a fantastic looking car was the is200! still looks very modern today. the rest of the lexus range up till date has been a tad dissapointing in the looks department. Engineers designed the five-door as part of their ongoing design method, L-finesse. As part of the exterior design, the car uses concealed door handles and blacked-out B-pillars to give the concept a smoother look and feel. The design team attempted to convey a powerful look by using a steep windshield, and a new grille set into a wide bumper. The wide stance incorporates air intakes to keep brake temperature down. Meanwhile, the long roofline shows just how much room is available for passengers and cargo. Similar to a Renault Megane five-door, the roofline hangs over the rear window to create a spoiler. At 4,300mm, the vehicle is five millimeters longer than the five-door Megane, but its 1,790mm width is 18 mm thinner than the Megane model.

Inside, the car uses a dash with an asymmetrical shape, and includes a new feature called "Remote Touch." This system works like a touchpad, or even a mouse, to let the driver choose from a wide variety of data and gauges. This eliminates "distracting instrumentation and switchgear," so the driver can focus on driving. Aiding in this, is a wide steering wheel, paddle-shifters, and a host of ergonomic features. Being a hybrid, the car uses Lexus' blue badging and lighting inside and out.

The type of fuel used, power figures, and economy numbers were not released. We do know that the Lexus LF-Ch Concept will be capable of running on batteries alone, but the range is not known. Hopefully, Lexus will release more details at next week's Frankfurt Motor Show.
