UNDER THE HOOD
The 3.5-liter LC 500h combined with a powerful engine manage to generate 359 horsepower and 35.5 kg-m.
10-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The all-new 10-speed automatic transmission ensures that you will be in the optimum gear in any situation.
WIDE GEAR RATIO
A wide gear ratio range enables smooth and powerful start-off acceleration while allowing comfortable high-speed cruising.
LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY
The LC 500h’s driving position sits 80mm further rearward than convention dictates, while the hip point is positioned lower, creating an ideal center of gravity supporting driving excellence.
Six-piston calipers on the front and four-piston calipers on the rear enhance braking power, so you can max your drive and still stop at the traffic light.
The highly maneuverable LC 500h responds exactly in accordance to the turn of the steering wheel, providing even greater driving fun for you behind the wheel.
The LC 500h cuts through the air with aerodynamic features, including aero stabilizing fins, an active rear wing and the world’s first rear aero ducts.
LEXUS DYNAMIC HANDLING

DRIVE MODE SELECT
Select performance to match your driving style with four drive modes: NORMAL, ECO, SPORT S and SPORT S+.
EXCLUSIVE TO LC 500h
MULTISTAGE HYBRID SYSTEM
In the past, people associated hybrid with "echo". Lexus wanted to change that perception and create a hybrid system of high performance. That's why it took the Lexus Hybrid Drive to the next level, combining a V6 gasoline engine and a motor generator with an automatic transmission providing better performance through its 10 speeds. This was the way we could design a system that responds much more directly to the actions of the driver, while still offering all the smoothness and efficiency that characterizes a complete Lexus hybrid.
A compact, lightweight and high-output lithium ion battery pack in the LC 500h contributes to excellent driving performance.
EV DRIVE MODE
Available only on hybrid models, the EV drive mode allows the driver to enjoy motor-only driving at low speeds.
