2018 Lexus LS 500H Hybrid
On the occasion of the famous Swiss automotive appointment comes the hybrid version of the Lexus LS, 2018 Lexus LS 500H Hybrid.
The version with traditional internal combustion engine we’ve seen. Now it’s time for the Lexus LS 500 Hybrid, i.e. the classic hybrid variant to which we have become accustomed in recent years the Japanese brand. The new flagship of Lexus House presents itself as the Geneva fair ecological 2017, even though his debut was anticipated in recent days by a first official image and some information disclosed by the company. The New Lexus LS 500H Hybrid is not much different in terms of aesthetics, then keeps the angular shapes and modern classical variant, with a design that combines geometric shapes in lines even rounder.
2018 Lexus LS 500H Hybrid Specs
The 2018 Lexus LS 500H Hybrid Release, that we have already seen at the Detroit Auto show, features a 3.5-liter V6 Twin-Turbo petrol engine. The Full Hybrid Lexus LS 500 is powered by the same 3.5-liter V6 Dual VVT-i under the hood, which rushed to help two electric motors, with a total output of 354 HP. This translates to an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. The transmission is automatic transmission 10-speed transmission with torque converter, with gearing and predictive operating logic. The hybrid system allows travel in pure electric mode up to a top speed of 140 km/h.
The car Uses a lithium-ion Battery pack, a more evolved than the nickel-metal hydride batteries that were on the old LS 600h Hybrid. New batteries are lighter (and have enabled us to lower the center of gravity, thanks also to the new platform GA-L), but also feature 20% smaller.
With regard to size, remember that the Lexus LS has a length of 5 meters and 23 centimeters, with a generous wheelbase of 3 meters and 12 centimeters, all to the advantage of the roominess. The technological content is at the top, but for all the details we have to postpone the appointment to the 7 of March.
