The Lexus LS 600hL makes its Canadian debut

Lexus unveils its most sophisticated flagship sedan at the Montréal
International Auto Show

MONTREAL, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Lexus today took the wraps off the luxury
auto-maker's most sophisticated flagship vehicle, as the 2008 Lexus LS 600hL
made its Canadian debut at the Montréal International Auto Show.
This hybrid luxury long-wheelbase sedan - scheduled to arrive in Canada
in the spring - is the world's first vehicle to feature a full-hybrid V8
Powered by the world's most proven hybrid technology - the Lexus Hybrid
Drive - the LS 600hL is the industry's most advanced deployment of hybrid
power to date. This flagship luxury model features a 5.0 L V8 engine, coupled
to large, high-output electric motors and a newly designed large-capacity
battery pack. The result is performance on par with a V12 from a system that
achieves best-in-class V8 fuel efficiency while generating a fraction of the
emissions of a conventionally powered vehicle. The LS 600hL is expected to
achieve a Tier 2, Bin 3 emissions rating, meaning it will generate nearly
70 per cent fewer emissions than the cleanest of its competitors.
"It's fair to say that - to our knowledge - there is nothing on the road
or on the drawing board that comes close to delivering such a formerly
contradictory combination of jaw-dropping engine performance, fuel efficiency,
and low emissions," said Stuart Payne, Director responsible for Lexus in
Canada. "The LS 600hL is quite simply in a class by itself."
