The Geneva Motor Show is always one of the best events to show off the motor industry’s new concepts and designs for the future, with some coming sooner than others.
For Lexus, it is a prime opportunity to display the stylish offerings that will be appearing in showrooms in the near future, or the concepts that could become a reality.
The main subject on display was the brand new Lexus LC500h, a streamlined, sporty coupé fitted with a world-first Multi-Stage Hybrid System.
This new system combines a 3.5-litre V6 petrol with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack, fitted with a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The system helps to achieve a more direct connection between the accelerator pedal and vehicle acceleration.
Built with style in mind, the LC won the EyesOn Award prizes for best production car and best designed interior. It's not just a winner in the beauty contest though, with smooth lines and low position on the road that help to make the LC perform well in the handling stakes.

Also shown was the new LF-FC concept that debuted at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show and is Lexus’s first step into the hydrogen fuel cell sector.
The LF-FC is also fitted with gesture control for the infotainment system and automated driving technologies, and is designed to show what the near future of motoring for Lexus could be like.
Designed as a sporty saloon, the LF-FC is very spacious inside and has more of a ‘4-door coupé’ feel, so it will be suited to both the main roads and the small, twisty side roads.
