THE LF-FC EXPRESSES OUR PROGRESSIVE LUXURY AND HIGH-TECH VISION OF A NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE

THE L-FINESSE PHILOSOPHY

The LF-FC’s exterior styling embodies the Lexus L-finesse design philosophy; seamless simplicity and elegance. The distinctive signature grille with a new mesh design dominates, while the floating L-shaped daytime running lights (DRL) punctuate the vehicle’s flowing curves.

    VISIONARY DESIGN

    A flowing roofline from front to rear, the LF-FC is designed to eat up straight roads, but also thoroughly enjoyable on more challenging, winding routes. Its 21-inch aluminium wheels with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic rims add an extra element of flair to an already dynamically styled machine.

STEP INSIDE THE LF-FC

Enter a futuristic world of intuitive technology and luxury. As you take your seat, you're greeted by an unobtrusive holographic projection hovering above the centre console. Touchless technology comes to life with simple hand gestures controlling the LF-FC's self-driving functions, infotainment and cabin climate.

  • IMMERSIVE LUXURY

    The cabin is designed in two sections; the top half conveys a sense of openness, allowing the driver to concentrate on the road ahead without feeling constrained. Seen at eye level, the aniline leather front seats seem to be floating in a seamless formation with the doors and dashboard.

    FUEL-CELL POWERTRAIN

    A hydrogen fuel-cell system powers this all-wheel-drive concept, allowing precise torque distribution control between the front and rear wheels. Optimal weight distribution for the LC-FC is achieved by placing the fuel-cells at the rear of the vehicle, the control unit at the front, and positioning the hydrogen fuel tanks in T-formation.

  • IMAGINATIVE TECHNOLOGY

    Automated driving technologies with elevated traffic environment recognition, prediction, and judgment functions provide a safe and efficient driving experience - we are on our way to creating a world where there are no traffic collisions.
