Hydrogen-powered Lexus LS prepares for Tokyo Auto Show

By ,

Lexus will introduce a hydrogen-powered LS Fuel Cell Vehicle concept at the upcoming Tokyo Auto Show, according to a report by Automotive News that quotes Japan’s Best Cars magazine. 

Last summer, the company announced plans to launch a hydrogen-powered LS sedan. It also promised a new concept for Tokyo. The Lexus LS FCV could enter production around 2018.

There are no other details to report for the moment, so we’ll have to wait until the Tokyo Auto Show. Also on display will be the GS F sports sedan that debuted at the NAIAS in Detroit earlier this year. 

Meanwhile, parent company Toyota is set to present the FCV Plus concept, which may turn out to succeed the Mirai. We’re not sure why because the latter is surpassing expectations even in the U.S., where 1,000 units have been allocated but nearly 3,000 customers have ordered one so far.
