Lexus to take on Carnival and Staria?

Asia's Tech News Daily

Lexus could be gearing up for a tilt at Australia’s people-mover segment, with a trademark surfacing for the brand’s LM model, which would give families a luxurious alternative to vehicles like the Kia Carnival and Hyundai Staria.

Trademark applications for the Lexus LM350h and LM500h were lodged in Australia last month, with the applications currently under review.

First revealed at the 2019 Shanghai motor show, and based on the Asian-market Toyota Alphard, the Lexus LM is a luxury-focused people-mover that features a massive spindle grille that will certainly attract attention.

  • Lexus LM rejected for Australia
  • 2022 Lexus LX fully detailed! Australian timing confirmed for upmarket Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series cousin that will take on Range Rover, BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS
  • 2022 Lexus NX features detailed: New BMW X3, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and Mercedes-Benz GLC rival to arrive late with hybrid and turbo options

That model, though, is likely due for a mid-life update, and it’s likely these trademark listings would apply to that.

Available in four- or seven-seat formats (the former aimed at providing a “business class” experience on the road, and the latter aimed at families) the Lexus LM really ups the on-road luxury, including the option of a massive 26-inch screen facing rear passengers, which pairs with a Mark Levinson stereo to deliver a cinema-like experience.

The powertrains trademarked include the 350h, which in other Lexus product, pairs a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and Lithium-ion battery pack for a total 147kW.

Perhaps more exciting, though, is the trademarking of the a 500h powertrain, which in the brand’s LC, pairs a 3.5-litre V6 engine with a 650-volt “Lexus Hybrid Drive” system and a lithium-ion battery. That setup delivers 264kW of power, and somewhere north of 350Nm in torque when the engine and motor outputs combine.

Lexus is yet to confirm the LM for Australia, and CarsGuide has contacted the brand for comment on these trademark listings.
