Frankfurt Auto Show: Lexus LF-Ch [Live Photos]
As you can see in the adjacent photos we made at the show in Germany, the car looks promising, even if we're not sure those shiny wheels could make it onto the production model. It boasts Lexus's Hybrid drive, which allows the car to be driven in a fully electric EV mode, releasing zero emissions and burning absolutely no fuel.
The concept is 4,300mm long and has a wheelbase of 2,600 mm, wearing tires of size 225/35R20.
"The LF-Ch concept reaffirms Lexus’s commitment to Europe, combining compact dimensions, stylish five-door, full hybrid technology and low emissions to satisfy the most demanding customer requirements and to appeal to a new, younger generation of customers," Lexus said in a statement for the press.
Inside, the asymmetric dashboard greets the driver when stepping in. The interiors has been specifically optimized for outstanding ergonomics, as the company said in the release. Lexus has also introduced the company's Remote Touch control, as seen in the new RX 450h, which allow the driver to access certain information, entertainment and vehicle programmes just like using a computer mouse.
The design of the seats is inspired by high quality furniture, Lexus said, with exposed metal frames, lightweight leather and grained black wood used in inter-related layers.
