In Holland, the LS is only available in hybrid form. Not sure about other European markets, though due to tougher environmental regulations, I doubt that the regular LS will be available, and if it is, the price difference will be MUCH more than in the US. Of course, Lexus is a small player in Europe, but Lexus scored pretty well with the GS, IS and CT hybrids (The first two are not hybrids in US).Is that right...is the hybrid the only powertrain for Europe? Obviously, the hybrid seems to be better for other markets. I've seen quite a few 2018 up LSs in my neighborhood, but never seen one with the hybrid badge. Lexus needs to bring a PHEV to market then. Magazines only test what they're given, so they can't speculate that a PHEV is better until they've driven it.
