The Lexus Luxury Hybrid


The 2010 Lexus HS Hybrid was revealed by Lexus to shake the quirky image typically associated with hybrids. Lexus has been the first to design a hybrid luxury sedan. The car was first unveiled in 2009 in Detroirt, which was fitting since the annual event was the birthplace of Toyata's luxury brand 20 years earlier. The hybrid received EPA estimated ratings of 35 miles per gallon in the city and 34 on the highway for a combined 35 miles per gallon utilizing regular gasoline.

The 2010 Lexus HS 250h Hybrid employs a 2.40liter four cylinder engine that can produce 147 horsepower. Combined with the electric motor, total output is 187 horsepower. An added benefit is that the HS 250h is capable of running on 87 octane. Keeping with the green theme, 30 percent of the 2010 HS Hybrid's materials are derived from plant based materials, with 85 percent of the car being fully recyclable, including the batteries. Luxury is also part of the Hybrid. It comes packed with plenty of amenities, including LED taillights, a heads up display, power seats and Lexus' new Enform telematics.
