Lexus will present a new standard for luxury mobility in Australia when the impressive LM luxury mover goes on sale later this year.
The LM showcases the finest of traditional Japanese omotenashi hospitality of anticipating guests' needs in advance, offering levels of comfort and amenity normally imagined with first and business class airplane travel.
The luxury mover will be available with a choice of two hybrid powertrains in keeping with the Lexus Electrified strategy of developing powertrains that combine strong performance with reduced fuel consumption and lower tailpipe emissions.
LM will be sold initially in seven-seat configuration with the LM 350h Sports Luxury, available in both two- and all-wheel drive, priced from $160,888 and $165,888 respectively1.
The 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with series parallel hybrid system produces 184 kW and 270 Nm for swift and smooth performance, sure to be appreciated by rear seat passengers as they are pampered in unrivaled luxury.
Once the sliding door is opened the two reclining business-class-like seats draw attention, with a third row boosting capacity to seven. When not in use the supplementary row may be conveniently folded away at the push of a button to maximise luggage space.
In early 2024 the LM range will be crowned with the four-seat LM 500h Ultra Luxury, with a 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder hybrid engine boasting more than 200 kW and all-wheel drive for sublime responsiveness. It is priced at $220,888.1
The centerpiece of the LM 500h is its rear cabin, dominated by two VIP throne seats with genuine first-class levels of comfort, overlaid with extensive Japanese Takumi craftsmanship and a Lexus-first Rear Climate Concierge for holistic control of the cabin environment.
Fully raising the glass behind the front seats creates a personal and private oasis of relaxation and quietness for chauffeured guests, who can enjoy unparalleled business or entertainment pleasure with a world-first 48-inch widescreen along with a 23-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system.
They may even wish to do so while enjoying a cool drink from the LM's inbuilt mini chiller.
