The Lexus luxury brand of Toyota Motor Sales today said that the LF-Gh hybrid concept will make its world debut at the 2011 New York International Auto Show.
The LF-Gh, which stands for Lexus Future Grand Touring Hybrid, “sets out to redefine the premium grand touring sedan,” Lexus said in a statement.
LF-Gh is likely the replacement for the current and unsuccessful Lexus GS sedan, whose 1,100 unit sales year-to-date are off 35%.
“Through this exercise, the definition of L-Finesse, the marque’s design philosophy since 2001, has been refined and evolved to include a bolder, more distinct projection of what a luxury car could become in a modern world,” the release went on to claim.
The result is the LF-Gh concept, which conveys ideas that may migrate to future Lexus vehicles on a global scale.
The new LF-Gh concept will be on display in the Lexus exhibit at the New York International Auto Show from April 20 – May 1, 2011.
