New Lexus LF-LC : fuel cell inside

2015_LF-FC_teaser

At the Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota Group displays a visionary new vehicle that offers a peek into the design and technology  direction of the brand’s future flagship sedan.

At the heart of the LF-FC is a high output fuel cell power system that energizes the rear wheels, and also sends power to two in-wheel motors in the front, making the LF-FC all-wheel-drive. This innovative drive system allows precise torque distribution control between the front and rear wheels, giving the full-size sedan exceptional dynamic handling and superior road stability. The strategic placement of the fuel-cell stack at the rear of the vehicle, power control unit at the front and T-formation configured hydrogen fuel tanks result in front and rear weight distribution optimal for a sporty sedan.

Lexus is turning to hydrogen, following Toyota and the Mirai.
