The world of car is changing by leaps and bounds in the last few years. It is true that it has always been evolving and improving, but the jump of the last times mark a before and an after in the history of our vehicles. Virtually all cars, brands and manufacturers have chosen to reduce the displacement of its proponents, both in conventional cars of average size, such as in utilities, as in sports.
We have quoted vehicles sports, those who just a few years ago got large numbers of power at the expense of huge displacements and, of course, burn a lot of fuel. Many brands, to comply with the regulations, they have resorted to the same that the models are general and common, that is to say, “disturb” the engines. With this you can reduce the front and get some figures of powers similar to or higher. On the other hand is the hybridization, which we have already seen in models such exclusive and technology as the Porsche 918 Spyder or the Ferrari LaFerrari, yielding a potencies very high.
Normally, vehicles like the two mentioned above do not seek with the hybrid propulsion to reduce consumption up to numbers comparable with those of a utility, but increase the power and benefit of the immediate response of the electrical systems. However, and although this is not the main objective, yes reduce consumption and emissions of fuel.
Seems to be that the next one who could jump on the bandwagon is Lexus with a hybrid radical. It does not take a lot of culture in motorsport to know that Lexus, part of Toyota, has a long trajectory in the field of hybrids, precisely thanks to the technology of Toyota. In fact, Lexus is one of the first brands that has completely left aside the mechanics of diesel, selling only gasoline vehicles and hybrid propulsion systems electric and gasoline.
According to rumored Lexus is studying the launch of a Lexus LC F hybrid and radical, with a performance higher than that of the LC that will come on the market during the next year. The LC will come in two versions, LC 500 h (hybrid) and LC 500 (petrol), getting 359 and 473 HP, respectively. From Lexus say that the project has not been initiated and who are not sure if you finally come to be made, but assert is an interesting idea.
