GS 450h THE POWER OF h

BREAKTHROUGH FULL HYBRID PERFORMANCE, EV MODE Benefitting from over a decade of Lexus leadership and innovation in Full Hybrid technology, the GS 450h delivers breathtaking performance, thanks to its powerful Lexus Hybrid Drive. Comprising a 3.5-litre V6 direct-injection Atkinson Cycle petrol engine and a high-output electric motor, this intelligent partnership develops 345 DIN hp. Acceleration is both smooth and incredibly rapid (100 km/h in 5.9 seconds) yet fuel consumption has been reduced by more than 20% to 5.9 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions have dropped to 137g/km. Select EV (Electric Vehicle) mode and the GS 450h drives in near silence, using no petrol and emitting zero CO2 or NOX. However, this new Lexus Full Hybrid is very practical too; the hybrid battery occupies minimum room, resulting in a generous 482 litres of boot space.

FULL HYBRID LEADERSHIP LEXUS HYBRID DRIVE, ZERO EMISSIONS CAPABILITY In 2004, we introduced Lexus Hybrid Drive to the world and, at present, we’re still the only luxury car manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of hybrid vehicles. However, hybrid technology can vary from one car manufacturer to another. Generally, there are two types of hybrid vehicles: mild hybrids and Full Hybrids. In mild hybrids, the petrol or diesel engine is usually the major power source, while the electric motor merely assists the engine. In the more advanced Full Hybrids, like the GS 450h, the V6 combustion engine and powerful electric motor work alongside each other, seamlessly. All Lexus hybrids not only start off using electric power alone, but can also be driven almost silently in EV (Electric Vehicle) zero emissions mode. At Lexus, all our hybrid vehicles are Full Hybrids.

13


HOW DOES LEXUS HYBRID DRIVE WORK?

START UP, DRIVING OFF When starting off, the powerful electric motor can swiftly propel the GS 450h up to 64 km/h, with electric power supplied by the hybrid battery. At this point the vehicle is almost silent, uses no petrol and produces zero emissions.

14

GS 450h FULL HYBRID SEDAN

NORMAL DRIVING CONDITIONS At speeds above 64 km/h the ultra-smooth 3.5-litre V6 direct-injection Atkinson Cycle petrol engine cuts in, almost silently, but still receives assistance from the electric motor when required. Through the near perfect distribution of its petrol and electric power sources, the GS 450h provides extraordinary driving excitement – together with low emissions and modest fuel consumption.


FULL THROTTLE ACCELERATION Accelerate powerfully and the 200 DIN hp electric motor instantaneously supplements the 3.5-litre 292 DIN hp V6 petrol engine. Together they deliver a potent surge of torque to provide breathtakingly fast linear acceleration precisely when you need it.

DECELERATION, STOPPING, BRAKING When decelerating or coming to a halt, the petrol engine turns off, cutting emissions to zero. Brake, or take your foot off the accelerator, and regenerative braking harnesses the kinetic energy lost in other cars. It converts this into electrical energy for storage in the hybrid battery, which is one reason why you never need to recharge a Lexus Full Hybrid.

GS 250 IMPECCABLE RESPONSE DYNAMIC V6 POWER, PADDLE SHIFT TRANSMISSION The all-new GS 250 comes with a 2.5-litre V6 petrol engine delivering 209 DIN hp of highly responsive power. Smooth and very rewarding to drive, this dynamic new performance sedan will accelerate rapidly up to a top speed of 230 km/h, where legally permitted. Engineered for lightness and strength, its aluminium-alloy V6 offers superb balance and durability, while leading edge sound engineering creates an excitingly resonant engine note. Surpassing Euro V emissions requirements, advanced D-4 direct injection and dual VVT-i valve control ensure both power and economy across the entire rev range. Driving the rear wheels, the GS 250’s 6-speed automatic transmission features paddle shifts and a manual ‘M’ mode for enhanced driving pleasure.

ECO / EV MODE

18

DRIVE MODE SELECT

Drive Mode Select allows you to choose between ECO, NORMAL, SPORT S and SPORT S+ modes, for maximising either the car’s efficiency or dynamic abilities. In ECO mode, engine output and gear selection are adjusted to optimise fuel efficiency, while the air conditioning and heated seats are all intelligently controlled to further reduce fuel consumption. Select EV (Electric Vehicle) mode and the GS 450h Full Hybrid provides an almost silent drive, using no petrol and emitting zero CO2 or NOX. In EV, ECO and NORMAL modes the instruments take on a tranquil blue colour, and the ecometer helps you to drive more efficiently.


SPORT S / SPORT S+ MODE

If you’re in a dynamic mood, select SPORT S mode and the GS immediately retunes the throttle for rapid acceleration. Available on GS models equipped with Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), SPORT S+ mode combines SPORT S mode’s enhanced powertrain output with coordinated control of AVS, Electric Power Steering and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management for a precise and exhilarating drive. Switching to SPORT S and SPORT S+ modes illuminates the instruments in a vibrant red and, on the new GS 450h, automatically changes the system power indicator into a tachometer.

A NEW KIND OF LEXUS INTELLIGENT AIRFLOW, ADVANCED DRIVING DYNAMICS Developed in the world’s most advanced driving simulator, and then tested over 1.6 million kilometres around the globe, we’ve created a totally new kind of Lexus sedan. We started by increasing the torsional rigidity of the GS bodyshell by 14%, and then perfected a new airflow management concept called ‘aerodynamic damping’, that involves moving airflow closer to the vehicle body to enhance handling. The flow is smoothed in and around the wheel arches, and air pressure is reduced within the arch itself. The effect not only improves steering response, creates a flatter ride and enhances road holding, it results in a drag coefficient of just Cd 0.26*. Together, these improvements have produced one of the most dynamic Lexus cars ever built. * For the Eco grade.

GS F SPORT DYNAMIC ATTRACTION F SPORT STYLING, 19-INCH ALLOYS, LEXUS DYNAMIC HANDLING The new GS 250 F SPORT and GS 450h F SPORT are unmistakably dynamic. Witness the aggressive F SPORT front-end styling – that integrates upper and lower honeycomb grilles – the 19-inch alloy wheels with 356 mm 2-piece front brakes, and the discrete rear spoiler. Inside, the cockpit features a 16-way sports driver’s seat; aluminium pedals, inlay panels and scuff plates; with the steering wheel and gearshift finished in perforated leather. Developed at the Nürburgring by the team that perfected our LFA V10 supercar, the GS F SPORT models offer an incredibly precise and exciting drive. For even more thrilling performance, an additional breakthrough on the GS 450h F SPORT is ‘Lexus Dynamic Handling’ that networks Adaptive Variable Suspension and Variable Gear Ratio Steering with Dynamic Rear Steering and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management.

PURE INNOVATION 3-ZONE S-FLOW AIR CONDITIONING, NANOE速 TECHNOLOGY More powerful than the previous air conditioning system, yet substantially more energy efficient, intelligent S-Flow technology provides climate control only to those seats that are occupied. To reduce power consumption further, external air is used to demist the windscreen, while warmer internal air is re-circulated in the lower cabin to reduce heat losses. Switch to ECO mode and the intelligent use of seat heaters keeps you warm, yet reduces the overall power requirement. Another climatic breakthrough is nanoe速 technology that releases microscopic, negatively charged nanoe速 particles into the cabin. By attaching themselves to airborne particles, these nanoe速 ions help purify the cabin air and effectively deodorise seats and upholstery. In addition, because their moisture content is approximately 1,000 times that of conventional ions, they display a healthy moisturising effect on your skin and hair.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

35


BREATHTAKING SOUND 17-SPEAKER MARK LEVINSON® PREMIUM AUDIO The new GS can be ordered with either a 12-speaker audio system that represents the next generation of clarity in Lexus sound, or a peerless 17-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Audio. Delivering 7.1-channel digital surround sound, this top-of-the-range system provides a true live concert experience for enjoying music and watching DVDs. The careful positioning of the speakers gives beautifully consistent sound for both front and rear seat occupants, resulting in a whole new level of definition, atmosphere and quality. The new Mark Levinson® digital amplifier generates 125 Watts per channel and a total of 835 Watts, while consuming just a quarter of the power of its predecessor. GreenEdge™ technology has also been incorporated into each of the 17 speakers, which develop twice the sound for the same energy consumption. For your convenience, every GS model is specified with a USB port for connecting multimedia devices, an AUX socket and a 12 V power socket.

REDEFINING QUALITY HAND-SANDED PAINTWORK, ‘TAKUMI’ CRAFTSMANSHIP The GS completely redefines build quality for this kind of performance sedan. You’ll sense it when you first touch the precision-machined aluminium audio controls or beautifully stitched leatherwork. Or stroke the car’s gleaming paintwork. This is wetsanded by hand after each foundation coat (a time-consuming process normally reserved for coach-built cars) and checked by eye as well as digitally to ensure a perfect finish. Equally impressive, the GS 450h’s steering wheel is painstakingly laminated from indigenous bamboo, hinting at the car’s unique environmental credentials. Built at our award-winning Tahara plant, on the same line as the LS flagship sedan, the entire GS production is overseen by Lexus ‘Takumi’ personnel. These master craftspeople rigorously check that every car meets our standards for smoothness, before each is taken for a final 30 km test drive.

43


CREATED WITH A CONSCIENCE CLEANEST DRIVETRAIN IN CLASS, 85% RECYCLABILITY The new GS offers the cleanest and most efficient Full Hybrid drivetrain in its class, with breakthrough S-Flow air conditioning and GreenEdge™ audio technology reducing overall energy consumption even further. Additionally, everything about the car is designed to minimise environmental impact. Bio-sourced materials are available for the first time, as are options like an indigenous fast-growing bamboo trim, and a bamboo/leather steering wheel for the GS 450h. At the end of its life, up to 85% of the car can be recycled, including the hybrid battery. Production at the award-winning Tahara plant is organised using our world-famous lean manufacturing techniques, with waste being kept to an absolute minimum, while every day the plant’s Aqua Control Centre purifies thousands of tons of water.

FULL HYBRID TECHNOLOGY For exhilarating driving and exceptional environmental performance, Lexus Hybrid Drive intelligently combines petrol and electric power. The result is 345 DIN hp for rapid acceleration; yet the combined CO2 emissions are as low as 137 g/km.

48


3.5-LITRE V6 PETROL ENGINE With innovative D-4S direct injection and dual VVT-i technology, this highly efficient ‘Atkinson Cycle’ engine is at the heart of the Full Hybrid GS 450h. Also featuring Start/Stop, it helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

POWER CONTROL UNIT The ‘brain’ of Lexus Hybrid Drive, the Power Control Unit (PCU) constantly optimises the allocation of power resources – electric, petrol or a combination of both. The PCU also manages the process of charging the hybrid battery, either by allocating engine power to drive the generator or through regenerative braking.

ADVANCED HYBRID BATTERY Energy-management of the 2-tier, 40-module nickel-metal hydride 288 V battery is controlled by sophisticated software. This ensures the battery is recharged as necessary during driving, so that external charging is never required. The compact design contributes to significantly increased boot capacity.

REGENERATIVE BRAKING When braking or decelerating, the vehicle’s wheels drive the high-output electric motor so that it functions as a generator. Kinetic energy – which would otherwise be lost as heat – is then captured and converted into electric power. This is stored in the hybrid battery for later use when driving in Electric Vehicle mode or accelerating swiftly.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV) MODE With sufficient battery charge, EV mode lets you drive at lower speeds over shorter distances using just electric power. EV mode is whisper quiet, emissions-free and consumes no fuel. This is ideal, for instance, when driving in slow-moving traffic or enclosed car parks.

FULL HYBRID PERFORMANCE The new GS 450h delivers impressive Full Hybrid performance. Accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds, thanks to a potent petrol/electric power combination. Or drive serenely in zero-emissions EV mode. Overall, combined emissions are just 137 g/km* and fuel consumption is only 5.9 l/100 km*. * For the Eco grade.

n

LEXUS DYNAMIC HANDLING Exclusive to the GS 450h F SPORT, Lexus Dynamic Handling elevates driving performance to a new dimension. Together, Variable Gear Ratio Steering and Dynamic Rear Steering control all four wheels independently. At low to medium speeds, the front and rear wheels turn at slightly opposing angles. This significantly reduces the turning circle for improved manoeuvrability at slow speeds, while improving agility when driving along winding country roads. At higher speeds, all four wheels steer in the same direction to enhance rear grip and stability. This ensures exceptionally composed lane changing and confident cornering at high speed.

DRIVE MODE SELECT Vehicle performance can be fine-tuned using Drive Mode Select. ECO mode reduces emissions and conserves fuel during relaxed driving, while NORMAL is configured for everyday driving – striking an ideal balance between economy and ride comfort. SPORT S immediately increases powertrain responsiveness for faster acceleration. With Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) specified, SPORT S+ intelligently controls the powertrain and AVS for exceptionally engaging performance. In the GS 450h F SPORT, 5-step Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management also networks control of Lexus Dynamic Handling in SPORT S+ mode. The results are supreme levels of on-the-limit vehicle agility and control.

LUGGAGE SPACE Boot space in the new GS 450h has been increased significantly. It can now accommodate three sets of golf clubs, while an additional golf bag will fit in the GS 250.

LED INTERIOR LIGHTING Soft white instrument and cabin lighting gives the interior a gentle, relaxing atmosphere. Energy-efficient Light Emitting Diodes provide illumination as needed via the main dome lamp, map and reading lights, as well as permanently lighting the door panels at night.

CLASSIC TIMEPIECE Taking pride of place in the centre of the dashboard, this classic timepiece bears testament to Lexus craftsmanship. With white LED illumination, an aura of timeless appeal is created.

REAR SUNSHADES An electrically operated sunshade can be specified for the rear screen. Operating smoothly and quietly, it is unobtrusive when not in use. Manual sun blinds are available for the rear door windows, complete with a sideways extension to cover the quarter light.

12.3-INCH MULTIMEDIA DISPLAY The new, high resolution, 12.3-inch multimedia display is the widest available in a series production vehicle. Driver and front passenger can interact with multiple display screens using Remote Touch, while voice commands also control a number of applications. The split-widescreen is optimised for simultaneously viewing two types of information, for example large map display and DAB radio station information.

This enables control of systems such as audio and climate or viewing the energy monitor (GS 450h), while HDD navigation is an upgrade option. The centre console also contains the head unit for the 12-speaker audio system. It features a DAB tuner, Bluetooth® audio and CD/DVD player. The USB port and AUX socket are located in the console box and illuminated by white LEDs.

MULTI-INFORMATION DISPLAY Positioned between the two main dials, the 3.5-inch high-resolution colour multi-information display provides a wide range of vehicle information and data. The driver can select the display settings via the steering wheel mounted control.

F SPORT 19" ALLOY WHEELS The exclusive F SPORT design 19" alloy wheels are shod with ultra low-profile tyres – 235/40 (front) and 265/35 (rear) – for exceptional cornering grip. 356 mm, 2-piece, front disc brakes ensure immense stopping power.

EXCLUSIVE FRONT BUMPER AND GRILLE With its distinctive honeycomb spindle grille and unique bumper, the eye-catching front of the F SPORT makes a bold and assertive design statement. The deeper, lower section incorporates an integral spoiler and is complemented by two separate, outer mesh grilles.

F SPORT

F SPORT BADGE Although discreet, the F SPORT logo is a badge of distinction. It reflects motorsport inspired design influences and hints at a lineage that is shared - in part - with the Lexus LFA V10 supercar.

F SPORT REAR SPOILER AND BUMPER The rear spoiler and integral bumper diffuser improve down-force and aerodynamic efficiency for exceptional handling stability. While the designs differ slightly between the Full Hybrid and petrol versions, both add a final, dynamically stylish touch to the exterior of the F SPORT.


F SPORT INTERIOR DESIGN

ALUMINIUM INLAYS The brushed aluminium inlays perfectly complement the drilled sport pedals, scuff plates and other F SPORT interior trim elements.

F SPORT STEERING WHEEL Grip the perforated leather steering wheel, with its F SPORT logo, and there is a tangible sense of being at-one with this high performance sedan.

DRILLED SPORT PEDALS Drilled aluminium pedals reflect the motorport design heritage of the new GS F SPORT model. High-grip, they are exceptionally responsive.

EXCLUSIVE SCUFF PLATES The inset front and rear door scuff plates are finished in brushed aluminium and inscribed with the LEXUS logo, exclusively in jet black.

F SPORT GEARSHIFT Finished in perforated leather, the F SPORT gearshift design matches the steering wheel to create a cohesive sense of sporting intent.

F SPORT LEATHER UPHOLSTERY A new leather design, with diamond shaped perforations, has been developed exclusively for the F SPORT. Vibrant garnet red is the signature F SPORT interior colour, while all F SPORT interiors feature a black roof lining.
