The Japanese automaker Lexus has released the initial details and official images of the LF-Ch premium concept compact hatchback. Apparently Lexus has decided it is time to enter the premium compact hatchback segment. Thus, the Lexus LF-Ch concept will be a starting point for a direct contender of cars like the Audi A3 or the BMW 1-Series . The press release of the Japanese automaker Lexus includes mostly details regarding the interior and exterior styling of the Lexus LF-Ch compact hatchback.
One of the most important things mentioned in the press release is the exterior dimensions of the car. More precisely, the Lexus LF-Ch premium compact hatchback concept has a wheelbase of 2600 millimeters, an overall length of 4300 millimeters, a height of 1400 millimeters and a width of 1790 millimeters. In comparison, having a wheelbase of 2578 millimeters, a length of 4292 millimeters, a height of 1423 millimeters and a width of 1765 millimeters, the Audi A3 is quite similar to the Lexus LF-Ch.
The Japanese automaker Lexus did not disclose any other details regarding the powertrain, or anything else, but they did mention that the LF-Ch has a full hybrid drivetrain that allows the Lexus LF-Ch to be driven in a fully electric mode, without using any conventional fuel.
A prepared statement of the Japanese automaker Lexus said that ``The LF-Ch concept reaffirms Lexus`s commitment to Europe, combining compact dimensions, stylish five door, full hybrid technology and low emissions to satisfy the most demanding customer requirements and to appeal to a new, younger generation of customers``.
The Japanese automaker will probably launch a production version of the LF-Ch premium compact hatchback towards the end of the next year. Until then, we have to wait for the Frankfurt Auto Show to open its gates so that we can get more details.
