Japanese car maker Toyota's luxury vehicle arm, Lexus has launched the all-new version of its Lexus ES 300h hybrid sedan in India priced at Rs 59.13 lakh (ex-showroom pan India).
The 7th generation Lexus ES 300h, which made its global debut in April this year at the Beijing Motor Show is the third vehicle in the 'Future Chapter of Lexus' that started with the LC coupe and LS sedan. To be imported as a CBU from its facility in Japan, it will be attracting more than 100% import duty and is priced at Rs. 59.13 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
The new generation Lexus ES is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine combined with the new, fourth-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive System. The Euro VI compliant, new hybrid electric system coupled with the four-cylinder petrol engine, delivers a combined 160 kW of total power, and a mileage of 22.37 km/litre. The car is equipped with the ES safety features such as ten airbags, hill start assist, vehicle stability control, and anti-theft system, with break-in and tilt sensors.
“The Lexus ES has undoubtedly been one of our most well-loved vehicles, and this new generation model builds on its strengths to offer a driving experience that is as powerful and exciting, as it is elegant and sophisticated. The launch of the all-new Lexus ES 300h is a reiteration of our commitment to crafting vehicles with enhanced excitement, passion and innovation; and this car will continue to offer our guests a wide range of options, each crafted consciously, and designed exquisitely to meet their exacting standards of excellence,” said N Raja, Chairman, Lexus India.
“A key element of the new ES 300h is the all-new Global Architecture – K (GA-K) platform. More than just an engineering achievement, the GA-K platform gave the designers the flexibility to create a vehicle that’s as visibly striking as it is enjoyable to drive. Its lower stance and proportions reflect its performance capabilities, and the slim LED headlamps with distinctive L shaped marker lights give the ES 300h a stunning new appearance that guarantees a second look. In keeping with the Lexus spirit of hospitality, or omotenashi, passenger comfort, a hallmark of the classic ES range remains the highlight in the seventh-generation as well," Lexus India stated in a release.
“The new Lexus ES 300h takes comfortable elegance to the next level and presents a vehicle that sets new benchmarks in its class. Every element in the ES 300h is a reminder that nothing is crafted like a Lexus. From the sleek new look to the impeccably finished interiors, the ES 300h is the perfect choice for guests who redefine the parameters of success and achievement, through their work,” said P.B. Venugopal, President, Lexus India.
