INTERIOR

HDD Navigation System
The next-generation voice-activated Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation System  on the LS 600h L features a touch-sensitive screen for inputting information, as well as an advanced voice-command system that allows you to search for destinations using your natural speaking voice. For example, if you say, "Show me gas stations," you'll be presented with locations in your immediate vicinity. And once you select a destination, the system will calculate up to three different routes and provide audible and visual directions as you drive.

Energy Monitor
The energy monitor in the LS 600h L allows the driver to observe the way the hybrid system operates. All the major components are represented, from the gasoline engine and electric-drive motor to the batteries and wheels. As the vehicle accelerates, brakes or coasts, animated arrows on the screen show which way the power is being supplied, letting the driver see just how efficiently the vehicle is running.


EFFICIENCY
 

EV Mode
This feature allows the LS 600h L to run solely on the electric motor, producing low noise and zero emissions.
EV mode allows the vehicle to operate at low speeds on the electric motor alone and will not use the gasoline engine. This technology has two major benefits: low noise and zero emissions. Maximum driving distance for EV mode is approximately one-half of a mile, depending on battery charge and driving conditions.

Lexus Hybrid Drive Technology Overview
From the power of Lexus Hybrid Drive to the efficiency of regenerative braking, take a tour through the inner workings of a Lexus Hybrid.
 

Regenerative Braking
One way the LS 600h L can help ensure that its battery remains properly charged is through regenerative braking. With this system, energy that is normally lost as heat during braking, coasting or deceleration is captured as electrical power, which is then used to recharge the battery.














The Power of Responsibility

  • Whether it’s the creation of eco-advanced materials for our hybrids, the manufacturing plant, the hybrids themselves or their afterlife, we are always looking for ways to reduce waste and improve efficiencies.

     
  • Recyclable Plastics:
    Developed by our engineers, TSOP (Toyota Super Olefin Polymer) is a type of plastic that doesn’t deteriorate. It’s recyclable rather than being discarded as waste after a single use, and is used in many places such as bumpers, interior panels, trim and parts of the dash and console. It is such a significant breakthrough, we’ve made the formula available to every other car manufacturer.
     
  • Sustainable Material:
    Kenaf, a highly sustainable grass plant similar to bamboo, produces three harvestable crops per season and, as it grows, absorbs significantly more CO2 than timber. Once bonded with nonpetroleum glue, it is formed into compressed panels and can be used inside doors and other areas. Castor, another natural plant, is used in the construction of seat cushions and seatbacks of the HS.
     
  • Steel & Aluminum Reclamation:
    Lexus manufacturing sites have an underground conveyor-belt system that captures excess bits and scraps of steel and aluminum. Ultimately, these scraps are shipped back to the vendor to be melted down for reuse.
     
  • Recycled Content:
    When seat cushions, floor mats and roof liners are manufactured, the leftover bits and trimmings are not discarded. Instead, they are recycled and repurposed as sound insulation in the doors, roof, floors and chassis. This way, nothing goes to waste.
     
  • Specialized Incenerators:
    Even with strict efficiency measures in place, a small portion of material waste is inevitable. For this purpose, a specialized incinerator with 85% thermal efficiency is used to burn the waste, generating electricity and steam that is redirected back into the manufacturing process.
     
  • Low VOCs:
    Lexus helped develop a water-based paint used for undercoating and modified the painting process to shorten the drying time. The result: Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions are reduced by nearly 70% compared to solvent-based undercoats, and CO 2 emissions are reduced by nearly 15%.
     
  • Low Emissions:
    Having met or surpassed the stringent emission requirements, every Lexus Hybrid has been certified as a Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV II) by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
     
  • Fuel Efficiency:
    On the road, the Lexus Hybrids themselves help make less of an impact on the environment with better fuel efficiency. One of the main reasons for this innovation is the Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) systems on the Lexus Hybrids’ combustion engines. This intelligent system emits fewer emissions and provides greater efficiency by ensuring the least amount of fuel is used at all times.
     
  • Battery Recycling:
    The powerful batteries in a Lexus Hybrid are designed to last for the life of the vehicle. However, in the case of an accident or if the system ceases to function for some reason, Lexus reclaims the battery so it can be recycled or stored on-site in an environmentally sensitive way.
     
  • Zero LandFill Status:
    Every Lexus manufacturing site has Zero-landfill Status, meaning that any waste resulting from manufacture is recycled, repurposed or used to generate additional energy. Nothing is ever taken to a landfill.
