    The luxury arm of Toyota, Lexus is all set launch the LS 500h in the Indian market on 15th January 2018. The new Lexus LS 500h made its first public debut at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show and it will be the fourth hybrid model from the company to go on sale in India.

    The luxury flagship sedan will come powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine which works together with two electric motors to provide a combined output of 350 bhp. Also, just like other Lexus cars, the Lexus LS 500h gets an eCVT transmission sending power to either a rear-wheel drive system or Lexus' new-age E Four electric all-wheel-drive system. However, the all-wheel drive system is not confirmed for India but we can definitely expect it sooner or later.

    The 2018 Lexus LS 500h has been designed on the new Lexus Global Architecture – Luxury (GA-L) platform that also underpins the all-new Lexus LC. This architecture is claimed to optimize weight distribution and ensures a low center of gravity that aids to its overall stability and handling. In terms of design and styling, the new LS 500h look similar to its global previous model. This four-door sedan sits on a long wheelbase of 3.1m and has a low, coupe-like profile. The sedan gets a very aggressive and outgoing look with sharp chrome grille in the front, the ragged edged headlamps and the infinite creases. With a Maserati Quattro Porte style quarter panel beyond the passenger door, the sedan looks quite long.
