Luxury car maker Lexus India on Monday launched its flagship sedan LS500h priced at Rs 1.77 crore to Rs 1.94 crore (ex-showroom). The highly anticipated fifth generation LS500h will soon be available in India. Bookings of the car started today and will be delivered to customers within three months as it will be a completely built unit (CBU) and an imported one.

From design to performance and comfort, the LS500h will deliver a peerless drive experience. The original luxury disruptor, the Lexus LS, has for nearly three decades set the benchmarks for powertrain smoothness, ride quietness, craftsmanship, attention to detail, documented dependability and long-term quality, the company said.

“For those who have arrived in life, the Lexus LS500h has now arrived in India. 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,” N Raja, Chairman, Lexus India, said.

The LS500h, inspired by the company's Formula One technology and powered by a 3.5L V6 petrol engine combined with a 310.8kV Lithium ion battery, will deliver 15.38 km/litre in a BS6 compliant vehicle, the company said.

The world’s first multi stage hybrid system offers exhilarating performance and greater efficiency with perfect amalgamation of the electric motor and a simulated 10-speed automatic transmission that enables precise shifts. The LS has advanced electronic controls to bring Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) to an even higher level, the company added.
