Lexus LC 500h & First Drive Review

- The Lexus LC 500h features a futuristic design like the iconic V10-powered LFA. - The hybrid grand tourer is likely to be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. - 3.5-litre V6 and two electric motors make a combined output of 354PS. - The Lexus LC 500h can do 0-100kmph in just 4.7 seconds. Expect it to cost upwards of Rs 1.5 crore (ex-showroom). The Lexus LC comes in two main configurations -- LC 500 and LC 500h. While the LC 500 gets a naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 ahead of the cabin, the LC 500h (h for hybrid) makes use of a V6 that works in conjunction with two electric motors. The LC 500 with the glorious sounding V8 and the 10-speed automatic gearbox is the perfect recipe for a GT. But unfortunately, Lexus India is only planning to bring the hybrid version to our shores. Headline figures for the India-bound LC 500h include 300PS of power and 348Nm of torque from the 3.5-litre V6 engine. These figures might seem trivial in comparison to the V8 motor (471PS), but the twin electric motors jack up the output to 354PS. This power is sent to the rear wheels with the help of an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission(CVT) paired with a four-speed automatic transmission.
