Lexus announced that the 2011 New York International Auto Show is going to reveal the Lexus LF-Gh Hybrid Concept. Making its global debut, this new bold and stylish concept gives a new meaning to the premium grand touring sedan.
LF-Gh stands for Lexus Future Grand Touring Hybrid! The name speaks volumes about the new concept and the future model, which has evolved to include a much bolder and a clear projection of what a luxury car should be.
The designer team is said to have envisioned the grand touring sedan when on the road as well as standing still, in order to come up with design approaches that form a combination of contrasting elements: energetic and soothing; hard and soft. They concentrated on performance, efficiency, elegance, and environmental friendliness combined with advanced technology; coming up with a unique one-of-a-kind vehicle.
Kengo Matsumoto, GM of the Lexus Design Division, Toyota Motor Corporation says, “The captivating design of the LF-Gh concept examines the possibility of balancing what are normally opposing qualities, such as style and functionality.”
