Obviously there is a market for hybrid cars, the biggest of which is probably the USA, particularly if Toyota is behind it all. Whether the 'hybridisation' always makes sense or not, can be argued. With the LS 600h, one could creep along at up to 67 km/h to one's office (if the office is no more than 4 km away) and if plug-in were possible, it could even be planned on a daily basis.

The engine has no noticeable savings effects, which would make the support of an electrical system necessary. On the other hand, in this price range the additional cost of a hybrid drive is not of particular consequence. Perhaps the potential client would simply like to give the impression of being environmentally conscious.

Mercedes Maybach is now only 10 centimetres longer ...

Since, in this case, one really indulgences oneself in luxury. It doesn't have to bear the logo of Mercedes Maybach, to make the comfort in the rear of the long-version something very special. Indeed, the extra air-conditioning for this area can also be had in the profane VW Touareg. Indeed, we then arrive at a tare-weight of 2,5 tons, including the driver (beg your pardon, chauffeur).

You can now well imagine, what's left of the 8,6 liters per 100 km ascertained by Lexus. The annual inspection service, called 'Fitnesscheck' every 15.000 km is also very costly. Not only are the radio and the navigation system worthy of improvement. Otherwise however, the car presents itself with all the virtues of Japanese reliability and after all, the Mercedes Maybach, which carries about the same basic price-tag, is not fitted with a hybrid drive. 01/15
