The Lexus LF-Ch is a premium compact car, and the first
vehicle in this segment from Lexus.
The LF-Ch is a response to the fact Lexus has an aging
ownership. The average age of Lexus owners is 56, and
the company is keen to attract new and younger buyers
while still retaining its core customers.
The LF-Ch is a great way of doing this. By creating a
new model, rather than redesigning an existing model Lexus
can draw new customers to the brand who might previously
have over looked the company's offerings.
The styling of the Lexus LF-Ch uses the same sloped nose
as all current Lexus model, but with a few more style
lines and air vents thrown in for good measure. At the
rear a new more adventurous style makes its way into the
design of the tail lights and rear bumper.
The blacked out B-pillars and hidden rear door handles
help create the look of a more sleek two-door coupe, while
still retaining all the functionality of a full four-door
The interior of the LF-Ch concept has been designed around
the driver. The driving position is low and well-supported,
with a wide-grip steering wheel with paddle shift controls
and an instrument binnacle housing large twin dials embellished
with a turbine motif. The design of the seats was inspired
by high quality furniture, with exposed metal frames,
lightweight leather and grained black wood used in layers.
The use of materials like leather, polished aluminium
and wood helps give the interior that premium feel Lexus
are looking for with the LF-Ch.
The Lexus LF-Ch features hybrid drivetrain which benefits
from an electric-only driving capability. This feature
of Lexus Hybrid Drive will allow the LF-Ch to travel in
virtual silence while emitting zero emissions.
