Following the world premiere of the V8-powered LC 500, Lexus unveils the All New LC 500h at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, featuring the world’s first Multi Stage Hybrid System - a next generation hybrid powertrain specifically designed for performance.

Together the LC 500 and LC 500h represent a new era for Lexus: engineering expertise and expressive design united without compromise to present a flagship luxury coupe.

New standard for hybrid engineering

The LC 500h combines greater efficiency with exhilarating power. The Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System was developed to deliver a more sporting and engaging driving experience, while achieving the best possible balance of power and fuel consumption.

By combining elements of a traditional hybrid powertrain (including a 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine, a powerful electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack) to a 4-speed automatic gearbox mounted at the rear of the hybrid transmission, the Multi Stage Hybrid System achieves a more direct connection between the accelerator pedal and vehicle acceleration.

Dynamic design

The LC 500 shares many of the key design elements, proportions and visual dynamism of the concept car from which it takes inspiration. The front fascia features a powerful interpretation of Lexus’ signature “spindle” grille, while interior styling reflects the dynamic luxury of the LC 500’s exterior.

Driving position has been calibrated to combine spirited and sporting driving with intuitive control. Immediately following the worldwide reveal of the LC 500, it was awarded the prestigious EyesOn Design Award, judged by a panel of design leaders, for best production car and best designed interior.

V8 driving experience

Alongside the next generation hybrid performance of the LC 500h sits the impressive V8 engine of the LC 500. A sharp, refined drive is achieved while maintaining superior ride quality.10-speed automatic transmission - the first ever in a luxury automobile - with shift times rivalling those of a dual-clutch transmission, is a newly developed feature of this vehicle. Such engineering allows the LC 500 to achieve performance and agility uncommon for a 4-person coupe, accelerating 0 - 100 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds (data quoted is provisional and subject to change).

Engineering teams have worked to find new solutions and maintain as much of the LF-LC as possible in the LC, creating a vehicle truly deserving of Lexus flagship status.
