In the technical preview we attended, Sato was not quite ready to reveal how much the 2018 Lexus LC500h weighs, but he told us that you regular must weigh about the same as the BMW 6 series. Even taking into account extra 150 pounds or what’s added by the lithium-ion battery pack and its associated electronics, a hybrid must weigh you approximately 4,400 pounds. While the Lexus says the 467-hp V-8 Coupe will hit 60 mph in “less than 4.5 seconds,” the hybrid will pack much less -133 horsepower less, to be exact, so we think that the Lexus subsidiary from five to zero – 60 mph time 500h may be a bit optimistic.
The internal combustion part of the powertrain is the Atkinson 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 295 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. The remaining 59 horses come from the larger electric motor / generator door on the multi-stage transmission. However, we are ready to prove our fault in the 2018 Lexus LC500h accelerator. After all, Lexus says this is the first hybrid that has made this spinning rear tires on dry asphalt.
As for efficiency, the Lexus maintains fuel economy numbers in the LC500h near its chest, as the EPA audit is still in the future some ways. We figure that you can expect the minimum city and dozens of highways from 31 and 37 mpg, however, 40 mpg on the highway is not a question.
Toyota did not disclose the price for you 500H during the launch because it is still too early. In addition, the car maker continues to advertise official prices for you conventional 500h. However, we expect the 2018 Lexus LC500h to cost more than the conventional twin. We believe the price will be more than $100,000. Make sure you check back for more updates.
Between the Lexus you, the new Infiniti Q60, the Mercedes-Benz Coupe S, and the BMW 6 series, the big coup sector may be on the verge of rebirth. Apart from striking the garden in a first-rate style, the Lexus is the only one offering a hybrid version. We are not sure that we will ever see a bigger battle on such small sales volumes and we can not wait.
