Few luxury brands have shown as much commitment to hybrid vehicles as Lexus. And that commitment pays off in the latest Lexus LS Hybrid model. The LS sedan has long been one of the brand’s signature vehicles. The addition of a hybrid model has been a tremendous success for the manufacturer and drivers alike. Here’s an overview of everything that the Lexus LS Hybrid has to offer.
Lexus LS Hybrid Fuel Efficiency
As a hybrid model, the Lexus LS Hybrid does not require a charging cable or plug. This adds a level of convenience for drivers who may not have frequent access to electric charging stations. But while the LS Hybrid still requires gas power, it is more efficient than its fully gas counterparts. The gas model trims of the LS Sedan get an estimated combined 21 or 22 miles per gallon each. On the other hand, the Lexus LS Hybrid gets an enhanced 25 miles per gallon. That efficiency grows on the highway, where it gets up to 29 MPG.
Speed and Performance of the Lexus LS Hybrid
The LS Hybrid features a specially developed V6 engine with “Multistage Hybrid Drive.” It operates on up to 354 horsepower, which is slightly less than its full gas counterparts in the LS line. However, the efficiency and smoothness of the partially electric drive more than make up for that difference. The LS Hybrid accelerates from 0-60 in 5.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 136 MPH. This makes it one of the faster luxury hybrids on the market.
The LS also features three distinct drive modes so that drivers can adjust to any situation. Custom Mode, Sport Mode, and Eco Mode enable the vehicle to drive effectively in all conditions. And an adaptive variable suspension works at all times to keep your ride comfortable and secure. The LS Hybrid sacrifices very little in terms of performance to gain its excellent hybrid efficiency. Drivers who appreciate the luxury of the LS line have no reason not to try the Lexus LS Hybrid model.
Design and Technology
Lexus always spares no expense when it comes to making the LS sedan look great. The 2022 hybrid model is no exception. Its bulky but smooth frame is perfectly contoured for peak performance. A large front grille prominently displays the Lexus insignia framed by narrow slanted headlights.
The interior of the LS Hybrid is a seamless combination of luxury and comfort. Power controlled synthetic leather seats and optional wood trims highlight the dazzling cabin. And a flush mounted center touchscreen infotainment display connects the driver with everything they need, right at their fingertips.
And as always, the Lexus LS Sedan has access to the full suite of advanced Lexus safety features. These include front collision detection, blind spot warning, and lane departure warning.
Lexus LS Hybrid Cost of Ownership
The Lexus LS Hybrid has a starting price of $90,500. This price is slightly higher than the standard model of the AWD LS sedan, which starts at $80,425. However, considering the added efficiency of the hybrid model, the difference can quickly pay for itself.
