Lexus shows off sexy hatch

2009-09-07 08:57
Lexus has revealed a teaser image of its sexy new hatchback ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show debut.

Lexus' first swipe at the premium hatchback segment populated by BMW's 1 Series, Audi's A3 and the Mercedes-Benz A- and B-Class duo, takes the form of a five-door hatchback known as the LF-Ch concept.

The Lexus concept differs from the more established offerings, though, in that it uses Lexus Hybrid Drive technology.

This allows electric only driving at city speeds, with practically silent operation with zero emissions.

Lexus has promised more details and images of the LF-Ch ahead of the car's motor show debut.
