Lexus LF-LC Hybrid Sport Coupe Concept Vehicle
Sure, this may not be your average post for GeekAlerts, but who wouldn’t want to drive around in this Lexus LF-LC Hybrid Sport Coupe Concept Vehicle. Its sleek and futuristic design not only looks cool on the outside, but it’s very high-tech on the inside as well.
The LF-LC uses green technology and has front-engine with rear-wheel drive platform, while featuring Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, which will deliver the driving performance and fuel efficiency Lexus customers demand. The interior features twin 12.3-inch LCD screens that function as the command center for this 2+2 coupe. The screens provide information and navigation display, and the LF-LC still has plenty of other interior goodies.
Touchscreen technology powers things like the windows, mirrors, seat adjustments and personal entertainment settings, while there is a pop-up touchscreen keyboard for more complex entries.
Set directly in front of the driver, multi-level meters layer analog and LCD technologies. The bottom layer displays temperature, fuel and the background for the Eco meter. The middle layer is the tachometer mechanical center ring. The topmost layer provides indicators for the tachometer, speedometer and Eco meter.
“This thought-provoking design exercise is a stunning expression of creativity,” said Templin. “Combined with a next-generation hybrid powertrain, this concept promises a rewarding driving experience that is also kinder to the environment.”
The Lexus LF-LC is a cool ride that hopefully some of you will get to experience one day. Let’s just hope that most of this technology makes it into this car and others from Lexus.
