#hashtags: #Lexus #Tokyo Motor Show #Automotive News #Prius #Toyota

Lexus announced Friday that it would show a concept for “progressive luxury” at its Tokyo Motor Show stand when the show starts later this month. The car, which Automotive News reported could be a concept for its flagship LS sedan, may be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, hybrid or Bernie Sanders. Lexus may also need to update its CT 200h, which is based on the Prius. Toyota is rolling out its new 2016 Prius, which will be the first car based on Toyota’s new global architecture. The CT 200h went on sale in 2011 and hasn’t changed much since. Lexus will also show off its GS F performance sedan for the first time in Japan. But let’s get back to talking about “progressive luxury,” which may be an oxymoron like “inconspicuous consumption,” “cold sweat” or “sport Prius.” According to Automotive News, Lexus may be preparing a fuel-cell version of its LS sedan for 2018. That car would likely be available first in Japan and select markets in the U.S. Retail hydrogen stations recently opened in California. Toyota will be showing a fuel-cell concept, dubbed FCV Plus, at its stand during the Tokyo Motor Show. The exhibition begins Oct. 28.
