Lexus will introduce the LF-CC hybrid coupe concept at the 2012 Paris auto show this month as the luxury marque's product overhaul continues.
The LF-CC signals the styling direction for the next-generation IS sedans, and a possible mid-sized coupe to complement the new GS sedan, Autoweek and Automotive News Europe reported.
Lexus executives have said they want to give the brand more personality and have hinted at the idea of a coupe version of the GS sedan, which was re-engineered in the spring.
The LF-CC sports the newest version of Lexus' signature spindle grille, which was first seen on the LF-Gh concept at the 2011 New York auto show.
The hybrid powertrain has a 2.5 liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine coupled with a high-output, electric motor.
The LF-CC uses a generator, battery and a "power-split device" to control the multiple outputs and direct them to the rear wheels. The gasoline engine also uses direct injection to save more fuel.
