Australia media reports Lexus is preparing a production fuel-cell car that should be based on the next-generation LS, due sometime in 2016.
According to the report from Motoring, the new Lexus LS fuel-cell should sit above the 600h hybrid model, which is expected to continue into the next generation. The powertrain is said to be an uprated version of the system found int he Toyota Mirai FCV. The Japanese giant calls their system, Toyota Fuel Cell System or TFCS.
A curb weight of around 4,630lbs is expected, a figure that’s not far off from current models and a 150kW fuel stack and a 220kW electric motor are being setup to supposedly provide 239 miles of water-vapor emissions.
