Efficiency Meets Excitement
Recognizing the importance of sustainable mobility, Lexus has also introduced a hybrid variant of its flagship LC model, the 2024 Lexus LC 500h. Utilizing a multi-stage hybrid system that seamlessly blends power and efficiency, a 3.5-liter V6 engine works in conjunction with an advanced electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.
