Lexus LS 600h L to retail for $104,750 USD

Toyota first showcased its Lexus LS 600h L nearly a year ago at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). At the time, the vehicle was billed as one of the world's most advanced luxury cars with its hybrid powertrain and AWD system.

Now, the company has finally announced pricing and an on sale date for its luxury flagship. Early estimates had pegged the LS 600h L as coming in around the $125,000 USD mark, however, the vehicle will be priced at $104,750 USD when it arrives in June. This will also make it the first Lexus vehicle with an MSRP that crosses the $100k USD threshold.

The 5.0 V8 hybrid powertrain will have a combined horsepower rating of 438HP and will deliver performance on par with V12 luxury sedans from BMW and Mercedes. Thanks to the hybrid powertrain, however, the LS 600h L will sip gas like a V6-powered all-wheel-drive luxury sedan and is also rated as a Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV).

So what does $104,750 USD get you these days? The LS 600h L will feature LED headlights, four-zone climate control (with a dedicated A/C unit for the rear passengers), voice-activated HDD-based navigation system with XM real-time traffic directing, 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, rear DVD entertainment system with 9" LCD screen, automated parallel parking system and an Advanced Pre-Collision System (APCS).

For those looking to get your hands on an LS 600h L in June, don't count on it. Over 1,850 pre-orders for the vehicle have already been taken and the first-year allocation for the vehicle is almost depleted.
