Lexus ready for serious hybrid fuel economy?
Over the weekend Toyota announced that it will produce 100,000 units of a new hybrid-only Lexus model. While Toyota has confirmed the new hybrid will offer a 2 - 2.5 liter engine, little else is official. Recently, Toyota has announced that it was strongly considering a Prius-like Lexus, in addition to a crossover hybrid. Likewise, Toyota has also hinted at the possibility of a lithium-powered Lexus hybrid. Nonetheless, most bets favor a Prius-like Lexus. Regardless, the new hybrid vehicle should be available sometime in 2009.
