New 2010 Lexus HS250h: Dedicated Hybrid Sedan

13 01 2009

Lexus reveals the all-new HS 250h – world’s first dedicated hybrid model as well as the first to future a four-cylinder gas engine at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Sales of the new HS 250h will launch in the United States in overdue summer.


Seeing the first photos of the HS 250h we couldn’t elude making a comparison – in language of intend- with the European souk 2009 Toyota Avensis. The two fronted-turn maneuver saloons piece many mean cues like the small, triangular shaped extension of the front skylight as well as the utter whittle of the car.

Furthermore, they assign the same wheelbase piece (106.3-in.) and have similar external dimensions. And oh, they also get the same steering swing. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not… Overall, the HS 250h isn’t untaken to win any beauty pageants, which is a pity as Lexus had the unplanned to craft a rare hybrid vehicle that would last out from the crowd.

Slightly longer than the IS and taller than, both the IS and ES, the Audi-A4 sized HS 250h fits between the IS luxury sport vehicle and the ES luxury sedan. Power comes from Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system mated to Lexus’ first four-cylinder gas engine, a 2.4-liter Atkinson-round division, for a total harvest of 187 HP. As you may have already guessed, license is obsessed to the front wheels through an electronically controlled continiouslt erratic transmission (CVT).

The Japanese automaker said that the HS 250h sedan’s projected fuel efficiency will be more than 30-percent better than the most fuel-helpful pattern presently in the Lexus prepare.

We seriously need to get on with the business of becoming energy independent. While we are doing the happy dance around the pumps with the lower prices OPEC is planning yet more production cuts and will not quit until they achieve their desired price per barrel. The record high prices this past year have done serious damage to our economy and society. It would cost the equivalent of 60 cents per gallon to charge and drive an elctric car. If all gasoline cars, trucks, and suv’s instead had plug-in electric drivetrains, the amount of electricity needed to replace gasoline is about equal to the estimated wind energy potential of the state of North Dakota.
