Lexus hybrid concept to bow at Frankfurt

The Lexus LF-Ch concept will be revealed at the Frankfurt motor show.

Lexus is finally jumping into the premium-compact segment in Europe with an eye-catching hybrid concept that will bow at the Frankfurt motor show.

The LF-Ch is a five-door full hybrid that takes aim at a younger audience than Lexus typically draws. The car has a prominent grille, wide bumper and air dam.

The LF-Ch cuts a sleek profile from the side, as the beltline rises towards the back, and the roofline is set low. It gets a coupelike appearance with blacked-out B-pillars and door handles that are blended into the C-pillar trim.

The exterior is also marked by a wheel arches, a rear spoiler and wraparound taillights. Other dressings include blue hybrid badges and chrome moldings.

Another view of the Lexus LF-Ch.

Inside, there is a navigation unit, leather, polished aluminum and wood, set against a backdrop of ambient lighting. The car also employs the Lexus Remote Touch controls, first seen on the RX 450h. They work like a computer mouse and allow users to control the nav display.

The LF-Ch runs on Lexus's hybrid drive technology and can be driven in full electric mode.
