7. Lexus LF-NX Concept

Lexus-LF-NX-Concept

Are hybrids the new black? It certainly seems so considering how many were unveiled at the Messe this year. Some are more likely for production than others, and the Lexus LF-NX concept is probably at the top of that list.

Serving as a preview for what’s to come with the company’s sub-RX crossover- said to be called the NX -the car uses a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine in a version of the brand’s hybrid powertrain that’s likely been lifted right from the ES300h. That said, look for roughly 200 hp and about 40 mpg when it arrives in production form.

The Japanese luxury brand hasn’t said when the real version might peep its head out from under the covers, but it’s hard to imagine Lexus staying totally silent on further details before year’s end with the Tokyo Motor Show approaching in November.

    What’s the Freaking Lambo?

  • Robby G

    I really hope that Opel leads to some sort of new Buick. The brand really needs a shake up.

  • Atticus

    Porsche does it again with it’s 918 Spyder !

  • ez2deal

    Concepts are not really a “car”.

  • Slick

    Love it!

    Robby G, Sure because opel were German Chevy. So General Motors should works some connection whatever GM’s cars make for better fuel techs with electric engine.

    What about the S Coupé concept ?

  • ColumWood

    It wasn’t an easy choice to come up with the list. Still, the S Coupe does nothing for me personally.

  • Pipeline

    The list is stupid. It has nothing to do with what should be the direction of the industry regarding cars on the street. It could just as easily be called the “Top ten weirdos.” You really need to get in touch with reality.
