The new LS500h variant comes in a completely new colour scheme named “Gin-ei Luster”. It is a new silver paint colour which brightens up in the presence of light. Additionally, the bumper gets a makeover to lend a stunning appearance to the model. As the name suggests, the interior is influenced by traditional Japanese crafts. The cabin's orientation of “Nishijin & Haku” is inspired by the ‘path of moonlight on the sea’. For the uninitiated, the term refers to a mysterious natural phenomenon visible for a short period of days, before, after, and during a full moon. Lexus has uplifted the design to an exquisite level by employing thin Haku’ platinum metal foil in the ornamentation. This gives the buyers a highly comfortable as well as an enriching riding experience. Other major updates in the LS500 h are a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, improved steering wheel controls plus a revamped centre console. 

Lexus LS 500h Nishijin variant is powered by a hybrid 3.4-litre 8GR FXS V type engine. The powertrain delivers a power output of 354 bhp with 350 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duty is taken care of by a Multi-Stage Hybrid unit.
