No technical details about the new IS have been shared; indeed, the only official information about the car has been the statement from Lexus that it'll "[bring] the thrill of driving to the compact luxury sports car segment", suggesting a renewed attempt the challenge the BMW's dominance in the area of driving fun and engagement.

The IS has been available in hybrid form since the current third-generation model debuted in 2013; a 2.5-litre "self-charging" hybrid drivetrain is currently the only engine option the car can be bought with in the UK. Lexus' current hybrid saloon range also encompasses the ES and LS.
