2018 Lexus LC500h : the fuel-efficient supercar

Published on December 30 2017

Back in 2012, Lexus unveiled the LF-LC concept, a model that received rave reviews as soon as the tarp came off. Fast forward to today, and the LF-LC which most believed previewed a new Lexus flagship has morphed in the spectacular Lexus LC.

Indeed the Japanese luxury automaker’s flagship model, the brand new Lexus LC is outstanding in a variety of ways, and it also offers something most other competitors do not: a hybrid model. With the 2018 Lexus LC500h, you get a vehicle that is not only mind-bending when it comes to its beauty, but also fuel-efficient. That said, with the 2018 Lexus LC500h, fuel economy does not come at the expense of performance.

The 2018 Lexus LC500h is much more than just a fuel-efficient, beautiful coupe. It’s in actually a vehicle that will be as comfortable on a track as it will be out on the open road. With the 2018 Lexus LC500h, you truly get the best of both worlds.

Under the hood is found a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 295 horsepower that is then paired with two electric motors and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Those two electric engines bring total output to 354 horsepower with a lithium-ion battery providing the energy to fuel them.

This ultimately translates into a 0-100 km/h time of just 5.0 seconds, and yet you also get a fuel economy rating of less than 10.0 liters per 100 kilometers without even trying. Going from 80 to 100 km/h requires just 4.3 seconds thanks in part to the instant torque delivered by the electric motors.

Inside the Lexus LC500h, you get what many consider to be one of the best interiors in the industry. It’s easy to use and beautiful, but it is also modern and built with high-quality materials. Despite its performance, the Lexus LC500h is a wonderful tourer that can be used as a daily driver without any difficulty.
