Details on all-new Lexus LS 500h confirmed

New Lexus hybrid flagship makes Geneva debut…

Lexus dealerships in Australia will soon welcome this all-new Lexus LS 500h.

Making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show today, Lexus has confirmed the offering will boast a new ‘Multi Stage’ hybrid system that will deliver a hefty 264kW.

That power output comes by way of the LS 500h’s 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine, twin electric motors and ten-speed auto transmission.

Aimed unashamedly at younger customers, Lexus tell us the model will deliver a 0-100km/h sprint in just 5.4 seconds.

And the new Lexus hybrid brings something else new to the table – the ability to be able to drive in full electric mode at speeds of up to 140km/h.

Coming on the back of the unveiling of the V6-powered LS 500 in Detroit in January, Lexus Chief Engineer Toshio Asahi tells us the Lexus range will soon welcome the two potent siblings.

“Developing such a flagship model required a massive paradigm shift.

Rather than being bound by the conventions that had defined luxury cars in the past, we aimed to create a car with innovative, emotional and sensual appeal that would draw customers’ eyes away from other luxury cars and provide entirely new values.”
