Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, the LC 500h has a max power output of 300 hp and peak torque figure of 348 Nm. The electric motor inside the car takes the overall peak power rating to 354 hp. A four-speed automatic CVT transfers power to the rear wheels and the transmission can be used in manual mode. Lexus claims that the LC 500h can go from stationery to 100 kmph in 5 seconds and has a top speed of 250 kmph.

The LC 500h looks absolutely stunning from the outside and boasts of generous doses of exquisite luxury inside the cabin. A massive spindle grille, L-shaped DRLs, LED headlights, darkened C-pillars and a wide rear profile makes the coupe stand a mile away from the crowd. It also features a 10.3 inch infotainment screen for passengers, 10-way power adjustable seats and customisation options.

Deliveries are expected to start from March and the initial units would be imported through the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route. The car, therefore, will be the same that is being sold globally, a statement of intent from Lexus.

Lexus also announced that it will now start local assembly of its products and the ES 300h becomes the first product to go down this path. "This new chapter is significant for Lexus and for our presence in India," said Masakazu Yoshimura, Chairman of Lexus India. "oday’s announcement represents our strong commitment to not just delivering an exceptional product and experience for our guests here, but sustainably enhancing our business for greater contribution to the economy and industry in India."

The ES 300h has a starting price of 51.90 lakh (ex showroom).

While the Lexus ES 300h continues to rival Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, Jaguar XF and BMW 5 Series, the LC 500 h will fight in a ultra premium category which also has Audi RS 5 Coupe, Bentley Continental, Mercedes AMG GT, Jaguar F-Type and the soon-to-be-launched BMW 8 Series.
