Lexus has launched a revised LS600h at the Frankfurt motor show.
The new LS, which is only available as a hybrid, has received styling tweaks including a new front grille, fog lights, front bumper and air intakes. New wing mirrors, LED indicators, and chrome detailing also features.
Improvements have been made to its hybrid drive system, which includes a new eco mode that modifies throttle response and increases the efficiency of the air-con.
These improvements have made the hybrid system Euro V compliant. The 5.0-litre V8 engine and 165kW electric motor produce a combined output of 439bhp and 383lb ft of torque. Its 0-62mph time is 6.3 secs, while CO2 emissions are 219g/km and combined cycle fuel economy remains at 30.4mpg. It also gets new brakes.
Inside, improvements include a new sat-nav system, new supportive seats, a new LCD display to replace the instrument cluster and a hybrid update screen.
The new Lexus LS600h is available to order now in short and long wheelbase mode and deliveries will start early next year. No prices have been announced by Lexus.
