The car that launched a brand, the Lexus LS, arrives in India. The bold design of this vehicle means that the roominess of a traditional three-box design comes with all the appeal of a 4-door coupe, housing a six-light cabin.
Peak performance begins with an all-new ultra-rigid Global Architecture – Luxury (GA-L) platform, which provides the framework for precision handling. The only long-wheelbase model in the portfolio, the LS500h sports a new multi-link air suspension system.
The vehicle is informed to be powered by a 3.5L V6 petrol engine combined with a 310.8kV Lithium-ion battery, delivering 15.38 km/litre in a BS6 compliant vehicle. It has been crafted to provide a seamless amalgamation of the electric motor and a simulated 10-speed automatic transmission to enable precise shifts.
The LS has advanced electronic controls to bring Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) to an even higher level. This new sophisticated VDIM system integrates and controls six different vehicle dynamic movements. Technological excellence has also been extended to the entertainment features of the LS500h. Time spent in traffic will no longer be lamented, thanks to the entertainment features of the vehicle, led by a 23-speaker Mark Levinson Quantum Logic Immersion (QLI) Reference Sound System, which delivers near live performance quality audio.
“For those who have arrived in life, the Lexus LS500h has now arrived in India. We are so thrilled to be adding the LS500h to our line-up here. When we think of the exacting standards of the most discerning Indian car owners, we are confident the new LS will impress and delight – through its design, its performance, and the efficiency of the world’s first multi-stage hybrid system,” said N Raja, Chairman, Lexus India.

New levels of Takumi craftsmanship have been achieved in the LS500h – in interior stylings inspired by origami hand pleats and Kiriko cut glass. Working with a fabric artisan from Kyoto, Lexus designers created a special pleat design which changes its expression when lit by daytime sunlight or the vehicle’s interior lighting.
Glass has rarely been used as an interior door-trim piece but the Kiriko-cut glass gives the LS instant distinctiveness and a level of artistry never seen before in an automobile. The luxury of 1022mm of legroom is complemented by the comforts of Shiatsu massage technology, heating functions and ottomans in the rear for added comfort. Exceptional interior quietness provides a shield from the busy roads.
“This is a car crafted for someone who has known the pleasures of dining at Michelin-starred restaurants, holidaying at the best resorts and generally being at the top of their game. The LS500h delivers beyond passion in ways that are wholly uncompromising so that the daily commute is transformed into an experience of epically luxurious proportions,” said PB Venugopal, President, Lexus India.
The Lexus LS500h will be available for booking from 15 January 2018 Ex-showroom at INR 1,77,21,000 for the Luxury Grade, INR 1,82,21,000 for the Ultra Luxury Grade and INR 1,93,71,000 for the Distinct Grade.
