Representing a future premium mid-size model
Lexus LF-CC Concept Car World Première
At the 2012 Paris International Motor Show

17 Sep. 2012: Lexus, the luxury brand of Toyota Motor Co., will unveil, as a world première, its mid-sized LF-CC coupe concept at this year's Paris International Motor Show (Mondial de l'Automobile, public days from 29 September to 14 October).

Compared to the Lexus LF-LC hybrid 2+2 sports coupe concept already unveiled last January at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show, the full hybrid LF-CC is a more compact, rear-wheel drive concept which integrates design cues from the LF-LC, and represents, as the Japanese brand indicates, a future Lexus D-segment (midsize, upper medium) model.

The LF-CC is equipped with a 2.5 litre full hybrid powertrain.

The LF-CC features the latest evolution of what Lexus calls its L-finesse design language, with the Lexus ‘spindle’ grille, a 3 LED-projector headlamp design that is freed from a conventional one-piece cover, and independent Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) integrated into the upper bumper surface.

On the side, a convex curve flows from the bonnet through the steeply raked windscreen, into a roofline which peaks towards the rear of the cabin.

To improve traction by increasing downforce over the rear wheels, an airflow regulating fin flows from underneath the side of the car and upwards through the rear wheel arch (see opposite picture), in a similar fashion to the design form seen on the LF-LC concept and the high-performance LFA.

Visually, the airflow regulating fin merges with the roofline in a rear spoiler integrated within the boot lid. At the rear, the stop lamp is integrated into the shark antenna.

Inside, the dashboard is divided into what Lexus calls an upper "display zone" with a multi-display screen and a lower "operation zone", which allows access to the shift lever and touch tracer display (directly behind the shift lever) for remote system control.

The LF-CC is equipped with an all-new 2.5 litre full hybrid powertrain with a targeted <100 g/km CO2 emissions level and an energy efficiency of more than 2 hp produced per gram of CO2.

Lexus also indicates that it will introduce the new hybrid powertrain into its model range in the near future. Adapted specifically for the hybrid powertrain, the all-new 2.5 litre, DOHC, 4-cylinder petrol engine adopts the Atkinson cycle and D-4S direct injection technology to optimise power and fuel-efficiency.

In addition to the 4-cylinder petrol engine and a compact, water-cooled permanent magnet electric motor, the LF-CC hybrid drive system 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 interaction of the system components.
