  • 2010 Lexus HS 250h

    Toyota has issued a voluntary recall on certain versions of its Lexus HS 250h and Prius hybrid vehicles due to an issue with the cars’ brakes. The recall affects all 2010 model year HS 250h and Prius hybrids, of which there are approximately 87,000 units in the U.S. The affected vehicles are equipped with a brake pressure accumulator that may develop a fatigue crack on an internal part due to vibration. The most likely outcome would be a loss of braking pressure, although Toyota hasn’t mentioned what would happen if the part in question did develop a crack. The automaker has...

    Report: Lexus planning hybrid IS for Europe instead of HS 250h

    Lexus has confirmed that its all-new HS 250h dedicated hybrid won’t go on sale in Europe because its carbon-dioxide emissions are already close to the similarly sized IS 220d diesel sedan. In its place, however, an IS-based hybrid could be in the works. News of the IS hybrid, which originates...

  • 2010 Lexus HS 250h

    Already selling strongly in Japan in pre-order sales, Lexus today announced U.S. pricing for the 2010 HS 250h dedicated luxury sedan. Starting at a mere $34,200, the hybrid is firmly positioned at the entry-level sector of the luxury sedan market. The carmaker hopes to hit 25,000 sales in the HS 250h's first year. As we showed you nearly two months ago with our first drive review of the car, the 2010 Lexus HS 250h can't really be compared with its corporate stablemate the Toyota Prius, but the comparisons are inevitable. Priced at over $12,000 more than a base Prius II, the HS 250h certainly...

Over 1,500 buyers have placed orders...

    High sales hopes aren't exactly in fashion right now, especially in the car industry, and Lexus is following suit, eying a fairly humble first-year target of 25,000 units for its new HS 250h dedicated hybrid sedan.

  • 2010 Lexus HS 250h

    Lexus today announced an all-new dedicated hybrid model for its lineup in the form of the HS 250h. The HS fits between the current IS and ES models and is designed to make luxury hybrids more affordable.

The HS 250h is powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine which generates 187hp (140kW) when combined with the Lexus Hybrid Drive system. Drive is sent to the front wheels via an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. Although no...
