The 500h will be Lexus’ flagship vehicle. After being unveiled at the North American Auto Show in 2016, the Lexus LC 500h has made its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.
The LC 500h has a 3.5 liter V6 engine and a battery pack that powers two electric motors. The total power output stands at 354hp and the 0-100kmph mark is met in under 5 seconds. The engine powered LC 500h variant will hit the same mark in 4.5 seconds. The high output fuel cell system that powers the hybrid should not offer any compromise in terms of performance. The Lexus LC 500h has a four-speed automatic transmission that works in conjuction with the eCVT and the Lexus hybrid system. Both the systems are always engaged, and it kind of feels like a ten-speed hybrid of the two!
