Lexus has unveiled its LF-Xh hybrid SUV concept and lifted the lid off its IS 250 with a new convertible model straight from the Paris Show.

 

The all-wheel drive LF-Xh features a V6 petrol engine mated to an electric hybrid drive system.

Its modern appearance is inspired by the unique L-Finesse design philosophy, featuring LED headlamps, handeless doors ad distinct blue hybrid badging.

“With the LF-Xh hybrid concept, it also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to hybrid technology as a core Lexus power-train.”

Based on the IS 250 platform, the new IS 250C features a lightweight three-piece folding roof and segment-leading boot and rear occupant space.

Extensive revisions to body structure and suspension components have resulted in exceptional torsional stiffness on par with the IS sedan.

The new convertible model also gains Lexus’ pre-crash, vehicle dynamics integrated management system and features a newly designed enlarged side airbag which provides head protection in the event of side impact.

The IS 250C will be powered by Lexus’ proven 153kW 2.5-litre V6 power plant mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
