Lexus has confirmed plans to reveal a hybrid version of the all-new LS sedan next month. The LS 500h is the obvious follow-up to brand’s reveal last month of the fifth-generation flagship sedan.
Along with the announcement today, Lexus also showcased a “teaser” of the 2018 LS 500h, which looks a lot like the regular version of the new LS. Aside from the hybrid badge on the side, there isn’t much visually different from the regular LS sedan.
Details of the car will have to wait until its March 7th reveal, but we do know that this car will be powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 and electric motor combination to generate a collective 354 horsepower.
Lexus revealed the all-new 2018 LS at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. Sharing its architecture with the Lexus LC, the new LS is slightly longer than the outgoing model and lighter. The LS 500 is also powered by an all-new twin-turbo V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 2018 LS 500 will go on sale later this year, with the hybrid variant likely to follow closely.
