Lexus HS 250h, World’s First Hybrid-Only Luxury Vehicle
Lexus HS 250h
With the introduction of the world’s first hybrid-only luxury car, the 2010 HS 250h,
Lexus brings the promise of sustainable luxury to the forefront of the auto industry. In the process,
the brand also elevates luxury transportation with innovative engineering and intelligent, driver-inspired
design that offers excellent roominess and nimble maneuverability.
Each new generation of Lexus hybrids brings with it new gains in efficiency.
With the HS 250h, designers and engineers took the opportunity to create a truly unique
luxury car that maximizes fuel economy while further shrinking its impact on the planet
by using ecologically advanced materials, clever packaging of people and components and
eradicating waste wherever possible. They also found fresh ways to make driving easier
and more efficient, with the premium quality and luxury expected from a Lexus.
Lexus IS Retractable Hard-Top Convertible Offers Top-Down Expressiveness with Coupe-Inspired Styling
Lexus IS C
The all-new 2010 Lexus IS 350C and IS 250C hard-top convertibles give Lexus a coupe and convertible
in the entry luxury segment for the first time. The IS C models combine the expressiveness of a
convertible with the athletic styling of a coupe. The IS C is Lexus’ second convertible and its first
since the debut of the SC430 in 2001. Featuring a convenient single-switch operation, the new
three-piece hard top provides open-air freedom with the top down without sacrificing the quiet and
comfort of a coupe. Constructed primarily of lightweight aluminum, the hard top also provides surprising
storage space but with low noise and increased security not typically found in soft-top convertibles.
In addition, the top completely retracts with no elements remaining in view.
