Lexus has unveiled the hybrid version of the LC 500 that was launched recently, dubbed Lexus LC 500h at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
This premium Japanese hybrid is based on the company’s LF-LC concept, the new LC lineup represents a shift in Lexus’ engineering processes and design direction according to Lexus.
The Lexus LC 500h is powered by the world’s first Multi Stage Hybrid system that was designed by Lexus specifically for use in performance vehicles. Also, it includes a gasoline-powered 3.5 litre V6 engine as well as an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack.
All of this will be controlled by a 4-speed automatic gearbox that is mounted at the rear of the hybrid transmission.
The LC 500h, combined with both the V6 mill and Multi Stage Hybrid system completes the 0-62mph sprint in less than 5 seconds. The Lexus LC 500h will be launched later this year at a price point of around €70,000 mark.
