Cars.com's Joe Wiesenfelder gives you an overview of the 2008 Lexus LS 600h. The Lexus competes with the Audi A8 and BMW 760.
(high energy music) Hi, I'm Joe Wiesenfelder of Cars.com. This is a Lexus LS 600 H. It is the world's most expensive hybrid. It's a hybrid version of the LS four 60, which is the Lexus flagship.
Aside from the fact that there are three projector beams per side, these are LED headlights. Apart from that, it's basically some blue. That's been incorporated into the logo here in front, also on the nameplate badge on the trunk lid. There's also a little hybrid badge on the side. Here's one compromise you have to make. The power trunk lid is standard on this car, happens to be the slowest power trunk lid I can remember. The partition stops right here, so you don't get a full trunk. That's because the battery pack is in here. In a separate video, we'll show you what it's like to drive the car. But for now, this car gets about 20 miles per gallon, city, and 22 highway. It doesn't sound that good, especially when you think the regular one gets 16 city and 24 highway. Oh, sorry. As you can probably tell I'm in the lap of luxury here watching a little video. It's party because I'm in the back of an LS 600 H L. L means it's the extended version gives me this limo like backseat. There's all sorts of different seat controls here, like reclining. Now, this is a pretty good recline as far as I'm concerned. Alright, $105,000 is a lot of money for a hybrid, but you're not trying to make your money back with this hybrid. And you probably wouldn't with most of the hybrids out there. Luxury manufacturers have figured out that technology isn't just about function, it's also about statement, it's about image. And when you take the statement of having a hybrid car and you add it to the statement of a world-class luxury sedan like this, that parks itself, well, that's a lot of luxury.
