Lexus has unveiled its latest hybrid, the LC 500h, which is a hybrid version of the LC coupe that Lexus revealed earlier this year. The LC 500h is going to have its world debut next month at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Lexus originally previewed the LC 500h with the LF-LC concept back in 2012 and now four years later, the LC 500h brings a sexy hybrid coupe to the Lexus lineup.
If you loved the look of the original LF-LC concept, you’ll be happy to see that most of the concept’s styling has transitioned into production. Lexus hasn’t revealed what hybrid powertrain will power the LC 500h, but did state that the next-generation Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System will provide “enhanced driving pleasure, more performance, and greater efficiency.” According to at least one report, the LC 500h will mate a 3.5L V6 to an electric motor with a combined output around 470 horsepower. If the LC 500h does manage to generate a total 470 horsepower, it will be on par with the output of the V8 in the LC 500, but with much greater fuel efficiency.
Lexus is also going to show off the LF-FC concept at the Geneva Motor Show, which is a preview of the next-generation LS. The new LS flagship is also expected to get the same hybrid powertrain as the LC 500h. Both models will debut on March 1.
