Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2021 Lexus LC 500h review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Lexus LC?

The Lexus LC is a four-seat luxury sports car. The dramatically styled two-door is available as the LC 500 with a 471-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission or the LC 500h with a 354-hp hybrid drivetrain. Both versions are rear-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW M850i, Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and Jaguar F-Type.

 What’s New on the 2021 Lexus LC?

A new soft-top convertible version of the LC 500 is available, and Android Auto smartphone connectivity joins Apple CarPlay. Lexus has also retuned the LC’s suspension for smoother performance and better turn-in.  

What Features in the 2021 Lexus LC Are Most Important?

Standard features include: 

  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Navigation with 10.3-inch screen
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after trial)
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking

Should I Buy the 2021 Lexus LC?

The Lexus LC combines knockout styling, top-notch luxury appointments and engaging driving dynamics. It skews to the luxury end of the spectrum rather than offering a pure sports car experience. The LC 500h hybrid is less enjoyable to drive and costs more. If ultimate performance — or a usable backseat — is important, then you’ll need to shop around.
