Lexus Celebrates 500,000th Hybrid

By raccars Published

Lexus is celebrating this week as the 500,000th HybridDrive-powered Lexus has rolled off the production line. That means half a million hybrid Lexus vehicles are currently roaming the streets, which does beg the question: are we beginning to accept hybrid and alternative technologies? It would seem so.

We have to say fair play to Lexus because they have stuck with the hybrid technology, even when people weren’t buying them, so to finally hit half a million cars it must make all the hard work and money worth it.

The UK’s Lexus hybrid sales numbers are currently at 32,700, so it seems we do love a nice hybrid Lexus – even if they do demand a premium.

Let’s see how the sales are affected in 2013 with the improvement of battery technology.
