The Lexus LS has served as the Japanese luxury brand’s flagship sedan ever since the brand launched for the 1990 model year. Today, it still serves as a more budget-friendly alternative to pricier full-size sedans from European luxury brands.

This luxury sedan has been available with an efficient hybrid powertrain since the “XF40” generation came out in 2007. That was a hybrid V8, but the current “XF50” Lexus LS uses a hybrid V6 that strikes a satisfying balance of performance and efficiency.

Let’s look at the cost of the 2024 Lexus LS Hybrid. We’ll also examine what you can expect to pay for a fully loaded example with available accessories and add-ons.

What’s all included in the 2024 Lexus LS 500h AWD?

The 2024 Lexus LS 500h AWD has a starting MSRP of $114,210. That’s also the top trim’s starting price since the Lexus LS hybrid variant only has one trim.

The hybrid powertrain employs a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to two electric motors. The total output is 354 horsepower, which is less than the non-hybrid LS. However, you get the obvious benefit of better fuel economy plus standard all-wheel drive. According to EPA estimates, the LS 500h returns 22 city/29 highway/25 combined mpg. That’s pretty efficient for a full-size luxury sedan with AWD.

A long list of standard features in the LS 500h includes 20-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, quilted-stitch perforated semi-aniline leather interior trim, heated, ventilated, and massaging front seats, heated rear seats, power rear seats with memory, a semi-aniline and leather–trimmed rear armrest with a 7-inch touchscreen controller, a heated steering wheel, a wireless charging pad, and four-zone climate control.

The high-tech infotainment system in the LS Hybrid has a 12.3-inch touchscreen and smartphone connectivity features like wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also standard is a Mark Levinson 23-speaker premium audio system with QuantumLogic technology.

The LS Hybrid is well-equipped with standard safety features. It has the basics you’d expect to find on a luxury sedan in this price range, like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. However, it’s also the only Lexus model with the Teammate semi-autonomous driving system. Where available, Teammate allows for hands-free driving on highways mapped by Lexus.

Accessories and add-ons for the LS Hybrid

Since every 2024 Lexus LS 500h is so well-equipped, there are only a few available options you can add. It already comes standard with many optional features on the non-hybrid LS, like the Mark Levinson audio system, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and extra luxurious seating for the rear passengers.

Options include machine-faced 20-inch wheels, Haku door trim, and premium paint options. Interior colors include Black, White, and Palomino (tan), and they’re all available at no extra cost.
