UNDER THE HYBRID 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 five drive modes: NORMAL, ECO, COMFORT, SPORT S, and SPORT S+.
ADAPTIVE VARIABLE SUSPENSION
AVS continually adjusts shock-absorber damping rates while driving, delivering the type of smooth ride expected of a Lexus.
EV DRIVE MODE
At low speeds, EV drive mode uses an 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.
MULTI-STAGE HYBRID SYSTEM
Our Hybrid Synergy Drive has a 4-speed shiftdevice that behaves like a 10-speed dual clutch transmission to deliver seamless acceleration.
