The 2018 Lexus LS 500h Sedan fares well in the fullsize sedan segment. Adding $4,510 to the price of the standard gasoline variant, the LS 500h hybrid carries a base price of MSRP $79,510, and is offered in a standalone trim. The engine on service here is a familiar 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine and dual-motor hybrid system and a 1.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. Mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission, it makes 354 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. The combined fuel economy improves from 23 MPG on the standard gasoline variant to 28 MPG on the hybrid variant, making the increase in sticker price worth it. Performance of the LS500 hybrid remains at par with the gasoline variant with the car accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Lexus offers the same 9 colors for the LS 500h hybrid and it competes indirectly Plug-in Hybrids such as against the BMW 7 Series PHEV and the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.
