Lexus LF-Ch conepts news - Going for gold - 2009
Lexus’s sketchy CT teaser has metamorphosed into an actual car. Well, an actual concept, anyhow.
It is called the LF-Ch and it will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt motorshow in a couple of weeks’ time, previewing Lexus’s 1-Series rival set to arrive in production form late next year.
So what do we know about it? Not a whole heap, in truth. The LF-Ch is a five-door hatch with similar dimensions to the slabby little BMW, and will launch with a full hybrid model capable of urban driving on electric power alone.
Unlike the rear-drive 1-Series, though, the LF-Ch is likely to be front-wheel drive.
We’ll get a proper look at the LF-Ch – and, no doubt, a whole bunch of eco-sermonising technical excitement – in Frankfurt on September 15.
