Lexus LS 600h Hybrid Features

Aug 9, 2008
With all the high gas prices out there, hybrid vehicles are continuing to become more popular among drivers. There are a few luxury hybrid choices out there, and the Lexus LS 600h Hybrid seems to be the most popular of those choices. Check out some of the features of the Lexus LS 600h and what sets itself apart from the other hybrids.

In the technological realm, the Lexus LS 600h is state-of-the-art for gadgets. With the car's power train technology creating the 430 horsepower, as well as the interesting gauges on the dashboard, the vehicle is incredibly technologically advanced. Thankfully, the actual vehicle does a very good job of reminding others that it is a hybrid, not just a joyride vehicle.

The actual transition between the hybrid system or the actual gas-powered engine is relatively seamless, allowing you, the driver, a level of peace you have never heard before. Because of that, you can expect a smoother ride in your hybrid, yet be aware that the electricity motor of the vehicle will only be able to go at lower speeds with much shorter distances.

The EV mode button in the car automatically turns the battery power to the primary source of power, and makes trying to talk about several subjects as well. If interested, know that it takes about 3 minutes to go to 25 miles per hour on a bad day.

As for the actual handling, it is precise and soothing, like any product from Lexus. Depending on the reviewer, the review may run from "confident" to something more along the lines of handling a limosuine and being told I've done a good job. This particular vehicle is perfect for Joyrides.

The gas consumption of this particular hybrid is one of the best out there, and the engine even shuts itself off while on traffic stops. The only thing to look out for is that, like all other hybrids, the air conditioning still runs off of the air conditioning, which can cost a lot. The engine is definitely supposed to utilize regenerative braking, so that way, you can have that particular problem fixed later.

Gas Mileage and the "Green" Factor

This is a hybrid vehicle, and as a hybrid vehicle from Lexus, the luxury Toyota line, boasting should be expected from the company that the hybrid is one of the busier streets where hybrids were released. As a result, the windmill stopped moving around and they had a chance to talk. At lease there is no reliance for gasoline any longer.

In this case, this talk about the hybrid's success with being a hybrid system is one that needs to be spoken about. In this particular case, those who are constantly driving, the desire for a rest is more than acceptable. In fact, you don't need to charge your car because the vehicle does it for you. This particular vehicle is definitely one where you can relax and help take care of the environment pretty passively.

The emissions of the vehicle are much, much lower than it was thought to be in conventional sedans, and the gas mileage is also much better than that of a normal sedan. So, without the greenhouse gases trying to ruin the atmosphere, and the gas mileage making the car a worthy investment, this particular vehicle is still worthy of praise for being able to have emissions that are 70% cleaner in comparison to actual gas-powered sedans.

Additional Features

On top of all of these other features, the LS 600h has an interesting and valuable Pre-Collision System, much like a system that can be seen in other hybrids and conventional vehicles by Lexus. This particular Pre-Collision System is the Advanced variety, which is a much more upgraded version of the PCS. The PCS has the ability to retract the seatbelt, activate the brake assist and help protect you against collision problems.

But, those are not the only reasons to look at the LS 600h hybrid.

1. Quiet is the first thing to notice about the new LS 600h. The noise and vibrations that are simply commonplace with conventional vehicles are cut in half by the noise cancellation technology in the hybrids.

2. The backup cameras are available and visible in the hybrid, alerting you to when pedestrians are close, as well as radars that do the same. Even better, there are lights to notify the driver that there may be something in the way.

This particular vehicle is certainly one of the more expensive models that Lexus and Toyota have to offer. At a starting price of $104,000, that is a huge sum to consider purchasing a hybrid vehicle for. Then again, this particular hybrid is much more than a counterpart, and the price may be two to three times more expensive than a regular hybrid, perhaps it is worth it to avid buyers.
