Toyota-owned company Lexus is set to introduce its three hybrid models in the Indian car market, the hybrid cars are named as RX 450h, GS 450h, and LS 600h. After getting successive exposure to other globe areas, the brand will finally enter into the most developing automobile country in order to create more followers. As per the reports, the expected launch can be possible in the second half of this year.
Mr. Kyoichi Tanada, Managing Officer, Toyota Motor said, "We already have a hybrid of Camry and as we are seeing government requirements and environmental issues in India, we have to develop or introduce more hybrid cars in the country. Basically, we have to consider three things - how we can keep our leadership through our SUV models, and also how we can increase our sales number through the passenger car lineup. And how will we be able to introduce more hybrid cars meeting the government's requirements."
Mechanically, Toyota has offered same engine options to the Lexus RX 450h and GS 450h. It includes a 3.5-litre V6 unit combined with an electric motor, but GS 450h generates more power in comparison to the RX 450h. The power is calculated in the numbers of 308 Bhp and 338 Bhp, respectively.
Talking further about the LS 600h model, it comes powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine which is also attached to an electric motor, pumping out 438 Bhp of power together. Beneath the impression, the all wheel drive option might be available.
