The Lexus ES Hybrid is now also available in Italy
The orders of the Lexus ES Hybrid are open, now available for the first time also on the Italian market.
The most sold Lexus sedan in the world, with over 2 million units globally since 1989, now at its seventh generation, it is part of the premium E-segment with an offer based exclusively on the hybrid Self Charging Hybrid version.
ES is developed on the new Global Architecture-K platform which, shifting the center of gravity further down, guarantees greater torsional rigidity of the frame, ensures excellent handling and driving pleasure and makes the car more agile, light and precise and sure.
The new Lexus is characterized by a latest generation Self Charging Hybrid propulsion system able to offer great fuel efficiency, reactive performance at all speeds and low emissions starting from 100 g/km of CO2.
The transmission combines a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle petrol engine with a compact and lightweight electric power unit, for a total system power of 218 hp that allows the ES Hybrid to travel up to 115 km/h in electric mode containing the consumption.
The car is equipped with the standard active safety system Lexus Safety System+ which, in addition to the PCS pre-collision system, the recognition of road signs, the lane departure warning and the automatic high beam headlights adds detection technology of cyclists and pedestrians (even at night) thanks to the refinements made in terms of sensitivity and radius of action of the radar.
Thanks to new safety technologies, Lexus ES Hybrid has obtained 5 stars in the recent Euro NCAP tests and it has been awarded in the large family car and Hybrid and electric car categories with the Best in class award 2018.
The Italian range is available in 4 versions, of which the Business version is dedicated to fleet customers.
In the Lexus forecasts, the Executive variant will cover more than half of the sales while the top of the range will be represented by the F SPORT and Luxury versions. Prices start at 50,800 Euros for the Business version and 56,000 Euros for the Executive.
