The Lexus IS 300h already represents a keenly cost effective proposition thanks to the low tax and running costs delivered by its highly efficient and refined hybrid powertrain. Now Lexus is helping customers save even more money by adding the new Executive Edition model to the range.

The Executive Edition comes complete with leather upholstery and Lexus Navigation system, in addition to the wealth of equipment, comfort and styling features provided by the existing Luxury grade model. With an on-the-road price of £29,995, the new Executive Edition represents £3,390 of “complimentary” value to the customer.

The proven, reliable and supremely smooth Lexus Hybrid Drive system returns impressive official fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures of 64.2mpg and 103g/km respectively, yet does not sacrifice performance – acceleration from nought to 62mph can be dispatched in 8.3 seconds.
