The Ultimate Hybrid Vehicle for Connoisseurs of Luxury

The hybrid version of our flagship luxury sedan is still in development and will debut in 2007. The LS 600h L will be the world’s first production vehicle to feature a full-hybrid V8 power train. It is projected to produce more than 430 horsepower.

Equipped with a full-time all-wheel-drive system as a standard feature, the LS 600h L is designed to deliver power and performance on par with modern 12-cylinder engines while still delivering best-in-V8-class fuel efficiency. It is also projected to carry a Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) rating, meaning the LS 600h L will have nearly 70 percent fewer smog-forming emissions than the “cleanest” of its competitors.

The long-wheelbase configuration of the LS 600h L brings nearly five inches of additional legroom for rear passengers (compared to the standard LS model). A long list of standard and available luxury conveniences makes the LS 600h L an ultra-luxurious vehicle.
