Lexus LS500h ar­rives in In­dia

Auto components India - - CONTENTS -

The car that launched a brand, the Lexus LS, ar­rives in In­dia. The highly an­tic­i­pated fifth gen­er­a­tion LS500h will soon be avail­able in In­dia, promis­ing to el­e­vate the lux­ury com­mute. The LS500h is the re­sult of years of care­ful crafts­man­ship, to de­liver for those who ac­cept no com­pro­mises and have a global frame of ref­er­ence for the ex­quis­ite. From de­sign through to per­for­mance and com­fort, the LS500h de­liv­ers a peer­less drive ex­pe­ri­ence. The orig­i­nal lux­ury dis­rup­tor, the Lexus LS has for nearly 3 decades set bench­marks for pow­er­train smooth­ness, ride quiet­ness, crafts­man­ship, at­ten­tion to de­tail, doc­u­mented de­pend­abil­ity and longterm qual­ity.

“For those who have ar­rived in life, the Lexus LS500h has now ar­rived in In­dia. We are so thrilled to be adding the LS500h to our line-up here. 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 takes the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Lexus unique L-fi­nesse de­sign lan­guage to an un­prece­dented level of el­e­gance. The bold de­sign of this ve­hi­cle means that the roomi­ness of a tra­di­tional three­box de­sign comes with all the ap­peal of a 4-door coupe, hous­ing a six-light cabin. Peak per­for­mance be­gins with an all new ul­tra-rigid Global Ar­chi­tec­ture - Lux­ury (GA-L) plat­form, which pro­vides the frame­work for pre­ci­sion han­dling.

The only long wheel base model in the port­fo­lio, the LS500h sports a new multi-link air sus­pen­sion sys­tem. Lexus’ tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions are in­spired by bound­less imag­i­na­tion but an­chored in a hu­man-cen­tric ap­proach to func­tion­al­ity. This is re­al­ized in the LS500h, in­spired by the For­mula One tech­nol­ogy and pow­ered by a 3.5L V6 petrol en­gine com­bined with a 310.8kV Lithium ion bat­tery, de­liv­er­ing 15.38 km/litre in a BS6 com­pli­ant ve­hi­cle. 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. This new so­phis­ti­cated VDIM sys­tem in­te­grates and con­trols six dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cle dy­namic move­ments.
