Lexus further confirmed its commitment to hybrid technology with the release of the MY2013 GS 450h, powered by a V6 Atkinson cycle gas engine and two-motor hybrid system – a first for any premium performance sedan. With the original version launched for the 2007 model year, GS 450h was the first hybrid-powered luxury sport sedan offered to the public.
A hybrid version of the MY2013 GS 350, this front engine rear-wheel drive model features upgrades on its hybrid powertrain and is now equipped with a second-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive system.
Ultimately, the superb performance of the new GS 450h is complemented by a new sculpted exterior that projects Lexus' new generation design philosophy.
During the vehicle’s design process, designers visualized the flow of air around it and maximized aerodynamic efficiency.
