About Lexus LS500h
The Lexus LS is manufactured by Lexus, the luxury division of the Japanese automaker Toyota. Its name stands for "Luxury Sedan". But some importers define it as a "Luxury Saloon". It was introduced in 1989. Until now, it has five generations. It is a full-size luxury sedan. And it is regarded as the flagship model of the company. In the first four generations, all the models featured V8 engines. But the fifth-generation vehicles are powered by a V6 engine. This series is one of the company's well-received products for its top quality, excellent performance, advanced auto parts, and stylish accessories.
The Lexus LS 500h is the fifth generation. The LS 500h uses the Multi-Stage Hybrid System. The model is known for its environment-friendly auto parts. The LS 500h employs a battery instead of the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery. It is powered by a non-Plug-in hybrid petrol 3.5-liter V6. A 3.5-liter petrol V6 can put out 295bhp. But if it is boosted by a hybrid system, the full output will be 354bhp. Because of the great auto parts, the company claims that 62mph from rest is dispatched on just 5.4s.

The Adaptive Variable Suspension system has been updated to improve ride quality. In the interior, the LS 500h adds thicker seat bases. And the tire sidewall stiffness is reduced. That means passengers are less likely to feel tarmac vibration.
