Lexus LF-FC Concept previews next-gen flagship sedan

Debuting at the 2015 Tokyo Show, the Lexus LF-FC evolves the brand’s current design DNA and gives hints on the styling and technology of the upcoming flagship.


At the front the LF-FC Concept is characterized by an evolved version of the signature grille with a new mesh design, matched by floating “L-shaped” daytime running lights (DRL).

The rear features distinctive taillights that adopt the same floating theme as the DRL.

Seen from the side, the roofline flows from front to rear in a “4-door coupe” style, while the stance is underlined by the sporty 21-inch aluminum wheels with carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) rims.

The interior of the LF-FC has been designed to wrap its occupants in a comfortable yet futuristic environment, while providing the driver with a highly-functional cockpit.

The cabin 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. When seen at eye level, the front seats seem to be floating.

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 LF-FC Concept features an advanced human machine interface that can be operated by simple hand gestures, without the need to touch a panel or controls.

A small holographic image on the center console indicates where the system can interpret your hand gestures to control the audio system and ventilation.

The car is powered by a fuel cell system that drives the rear wheels, and also sends power to two in-wheel motors in the front, making the LF-FC all-wheel-drive.

This innovative drive system allows precise torque distribution control between the front and rear wheels.

The strategic placement of the fuel-cell stack at the rear of the vehicle, power control unit at the front and T-formation configured hydrogen fuel tanks result in optimal weight distribution.

Among the onboard systems are a number of automated driving technologies, including elevated traffic environment recognition, prediction, and judgment function.
