European consumers will get their first taste of Lexus’ all-new premium compact IS sedan at the Geneva Motor Show, where the Japanese company will also display its LF-CC sports coupe concept finished in a fresh shade.
Following its debut at the Detroit Motor Show last month, the new sedan will be presented in full-hybrid trim as the IS 300h.
Lexus has said that its powertrain connects a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder petrol engine to an electric motor and a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) driving the rear wheels, but has not yet released performance and fuel economy numbers.
The IS 300h will be offered with an F Sport package, featuring sportier-themed exterior and interior design features as well as driving dynamics. According to Lexus, the hybrid model will be sold in Europe, Japan and select international markets (no word if it will come to North America).
