Next Generation Lexus Flagship LS Sedan Could Be a Fuel Cell Vehicle

Rumor

After all, a proper flagship should display the latest in technology.

Although it’s still a couple years off, some details are beginning to emerge regarding the next generation Lexus LS. The current flagship of Toyota’s luxury division isn’t exactly exciting, but it does have a certain appeal for those looking for a big, premium, reliable daily driver. Its German-built competitors, such as the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class have typically been more cutting-edge technology wise, but that may soon change.

According to Lexus Enthusiast, who picked up the information from a Japanese source, the next Lexus LS will be a Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) powered partly by hydrogen. Basically, the recently introduced Toyota Mirai FCV is just the start of a new era of powertrain technology for the Japanese automaker. The next LS would be the ideal technological follow-up to the unexciting Mirai. It’s definitely intriguing and Toyota, unlike its German rivals, has invested heavily in hydrogen fuel cell technology. What better way to show this off than on a flagship luxury sedan.
