Perfection is a moving target, advancing as technology reveals new possibilities. With the Lexus LF-Sh concept vehicle, our engineers and designers apply innovation as never before, blending the environmental advantages of a V8 hybrid system with the effortless performance of all-wheel drive and a quantum leap forward in safety. A vision of luxury that recognizes the necessity of conservation, the LF-Sh demonstrates that the future of the automobile is always worth the pursuit.
The Lexus LF-Sh concept provides strong pointers for the styling and dimensions of the next-generation Lexus flagship LS model. Its powerful and elegant lines are a further development of Lexus’s L-finesse design language, as already witnessed in this year’s new GS and IS models.
Presenting the car, Lexus Development Centre Manager Takeshi Yoshida said: "The LF-Sh is conceived as the Lexus brand’s flagship saloon of the future and represents Lexus’s ‘pursuit of perfection’. It is an impressive and elegant vehicle that delivers high standards of ride quality, comfort, safety and environmental performance."
Demonstrating Lexus’s advances in advanced drivetrain technology, the LF-Sh is powered by a hybrid system combining electric motors and V8 petrol engine, driving all four wheels. This system offers exceptional acceleration, while delivering much lower emissions levels than conventional engines with similar outputs.
The concept vehicle also incorporates ground-breaking systems designed to increase accident avoidance performance.
