Lexus LF-CC To Premier At Paris Motor Show

Lexus has announced that it will be premier the Lexus LF-CC mid-sized coupe concept to the 2012 Paris Motor Show. According to Lexus the Lexus LF-CC is will fit into the more accessible D-segment.

The LF-CC integrates various design cues from the LF-LC and is said to display the latest evolution of the L-finesse design language and signature spindle grille. Some of the key design attributes include the front 3 LED projector headlamps, the front broad low fenders, and the sharply sculpted airflow regulating fin that flow from underneath the side of the car and upwards through the rear wheel arch.

The rear wheel drive Lexus LF-CC is propelled by a new 2.5 litre hybrid powertrain with supposed class leading CO2 emissions targeted below 100g/km. The hybrid powertrain consists of a 2.5litre 4-cylinder petrol engine mated to a compact, high-output, water-cooled permanent magnet electric motor. In addition to the petrol engine and electric motor, the LF-CC hybrid drive system further comprises a generator, a high-performance battery, a power split device which, via planetary reduction gears, combines and re-allocates power from the engine, electric motor and generator according to operational requirements, and a compact power control unit to govern the high speed interaction of the system components. The hybrid system seems rather elaborate and should help reduce range anxiety issues.

The LF-CC’s interior hints at the progressive luxury of a future Lexus model cabin layout, and represents a further development of the company’s HMI (Human Machine Interface) design philosophy.
