The car starts at $34,200 and delivers 35mpg city/34mpg highway
The HS 250h won't actually arrive in any garages until later this summer, both in the U.S. and Japan, but sales have already tripled the carmaker's monthly target for Japan.
There is even some discussion that some of the sales of the HS could be due to the blockbuster demand for the new 2010 Toytota Prius pushing delivery back by 8 months. Customers that don't want to wait might be switching their orders to the more luxurious, if somewhat less efficient, hybrid Lexus.
