Lexus IS Coupe Planned For 2014, Plug-In Hybrid Due?

Lexus has announced a coupe version of its compact luxury sedan, the IS, will go on sale in 2014.

The company hasn’t confirmed whether a hybrid version will be made, though with the latest IS inspired by last year’s LF-CC concept, itself a hybrid, such a thing is likely.

The coupe is expected to look very similar to the LF-CC concept, one of the company’s most dramatically-styled vehicles yet.

It might not be the only hybrid version of the IS, either.

According to What Car, which confirmed the rumors of the IS coupe, Lexus has also suggested that a plug-in hybrid version of the IS wouldn’t be difficult to do.

Currently, the only plug-in hybrid in the Toyota and Lexus line-up is the Prius Plug-In Hybrid. The fate of this model will effectively seal the fate of an IS plug-in, since demand for the Toyota has so far been a little less than the company expected.

Whether such a thing would reach the U.S. or not is less clear
