    GENEVA, Feb. 15, 2016 -- Lexus will unveil the hybrid version of its all-new LC luxury coupe at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

LF-FC is a visionary new vehicle that offers a peek into the design and technology direction of Lexus’ future flagship sedan. Initially revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, the LF-FC is powered by a high output fuel cell system. It also features an advanced touchless human machine interface as well as automated driving technologies.
