Lexus just announced the world debut of its LF-Gh [2] hybrid concept car at the New York Auto Show [3]. The new vehicle fuses luxury design, efficiency and environmental compatibility into a premium sedan [4] that sets a new standard for green luxury vehicles.

The LF-Gh designers sought to strike a balance between a range of qualities, combining style and functionality, energy and soothing elements, as well as hard and soft design features. The vehicle is also adorned with a bevy of LED lights [6] — from LED headlights to a “Blue LED Lexus Hybrid Drive”. The vehicle also features an innovative exhaust system that reduces the flow of exhaust, setting a standard that the company anticipates will be required in the near future.

Lexus announced that the LF-Gh Hybrid will serve as the inspiration and model for future vehicles. The hybrid’s streamlined body features air vents that coincide with the curve of the body, and a spindle-shaped grill was also added to “command presence” while controlling airflow and stability.
