The surge in customer demand for hybrid power has reached new heights, accounting for almost one in every three new Lexus models sold in the UK. Motorists are making a considered choice to opt for the unmatched combination of lower emissions, fuel efficiency and performance offered by Lexus Hybrid Drive technology, helping push sales to record levels.
- 28 per cent of all Lexus UK sales are hybrids.
- RX 400h is Lexus’s best-selling model in Europe and accounts for more than 80 per cent of all UK RX sales.
- Record volume and market share achieved in September 2007
So far this year, the RX 400h is Lexus’s best selling model in Europe, representing a 24 per cent share of European sales volumes, while in Britain 80 per cent of RX sales are of the hybrid version. The GS 450h executive sports saloon also outsells its conventionally powered sister model and the new LS 600h flagship limousine goes on sale this month with an advance order book filled for the next six months.
