UNDER THE HOOD
Under the skin of the LS 500h is a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to two electric motors.
Artificial Intelligence Shift uses information from the G sensor to understand when to introduce downshift when braking, and how many gears to drop down.
DRIVE MODE SELECT
Select performance to match your driving style with six drive modes: NORMAL, ECO, COMFORT, SPORT S, SPORT S+.
ADAPTIVE VARIABLE SUSPENSION
AVS continually adjusts shock-absorber damping rates while driving, delivering the type of smooth ride expected of a Lexus.
EXCLUSIVE TO LS 500h
LEXUS HYBRID DRIVE
Lexus Hybrid Drive draws power from both electric and petrol motors, resulting in instant torque and surprising acceleration.
EV DRIVE MODE
At low speeds, EV drive mode uses only the electric motor for a silent and zero-emission drive.
When braking or decelerating, kinetic energy which would otherwise be lost is recovered as electric energy, and stored for later use.
FROM ECO TO TACH METER
In the mood for a sportier drive? The Hybrid System Indicator changes to a tachometer when you select SPORT mode.
MULTI-STAGE HYBRID TRANSMISSION
