Lexus LC 500h Churns Out 359 PS, Gets Detailed In 40 Images [w/Video]

Lexus has released details on the new LC 500h, which was previewed earlier this week.

The new coupe uses a Multi Stage Hybrid System that consists of a 299PS (295hp) 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine and an electric motor that takes juice from a lithium-ion battery pack.

Its total system output is 359PS (354hp), sent to the wheels through a four-speed automatic gearbox mounted at the rear. The result is a 0 to 100km/h (62mph) time in less than 5 seconds, half a second slower than the V8-powered LC 500.

The Lexus LC 500h is 4,760mm long, 1,920mm wide and 1,345 mm tall, with a 2,870mm wheelbase. The coupe looks just as striking as the non-hybrid variant that owned this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

Inside, the new hybrid adopts the next-gen touch pad for the RTI (Remote Touch Interface) and 2017 Lexus multimedia package that debuts in the LC with new software that enables future enhancements and updated graphic user interface. These are joined by Mark Levinson audio package and a new premium Pioneer audio system, offered as standard, premium materials, hand-stitched leather and Alcantara door trim.

Standard equipment includes Lexus Safety System +, which helps prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations, combining a camera and millimeter-wave radar for high level detection performance. It also has pedestrian detection function, All-speed Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keep Assist and Automatic High Beam headlight tech.

Lexus will display the LC 500h at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in less than two weeks’ time.
