On October 14, Lexus unveiled not only the next generation of its flagship LX SUV, but also a concept buggy with a combustion engine running on hydrogen.
In 2021, Toyota Motor has stepped up development in this area. She created the hydrogen-powered racing Corolla Sport and competed with it in 24-hour races.
In September, the Japanese media even reported that one of the versions of the next generation Toyota Prius will receive an internal combustion engine running on hydrogen. There is no confirmation of these rumors yet.
As for the Lexus buggy, there is little information about it: a few minutes of the video is devoted to it, the main character of which is the new LX. According to the host, the internal combustion engine (if you believe the computer graphics, this is a 3-cylinder 12-valve engine) consumes hydrogen, and the product of its work is only distilled water.
Trips to nature on an off-road buggy should be done without harming it, according to Toyota.
Lexus representatives did not specify whether to expect the appearance of a serial product based on this buggy and in what area the company intends to use the internal combustion engine on hydrogen.
