Lexus GS300h on its way as a more affordable hybrid sedan

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 11, 2012

After introducing the GS250, it appears that Lexus also wants a more affordable hybrid version of its sedan in order to boost sales. MSN Cars reports that a new hybrid GS model is on its way and it will join the range alongside the existing GS450h.

These words came from President and Managing Director of Toyota Lexus GB, Jon Williams, who confirmed the new model during a press conference during the European launch of the new GS.

As expected, Williams didn’t give any details regarding the new car. If the GS450h is powered by 3.5-liter the new hybrid model is expected to get an even smaller engine than the 2.5-liter V6 found on the GS250.

The price will also be significantly lower than the one asked for the GS450h. The new vehicle could receive the GS300h badge and could be unveiled as early as the 2012 Paris Motor Show, which will take place in September. When asked about a diesel-powered GS, Williams told the press that there are no plans for the moment!
