Lexus Earns Two of Top 10 Spots in 2011 Federal Fuel Economy List
TORRANCE, Calif. (November 4, 2010) – The Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Department has released its list of top 10 fuel-economy leaders for 2011, which includes two Lexus hybrid models.
The HS 250h luxury sedan at 35 mpg city/34 highway/35 combined was ranked fifth while the RX 450h SUV was ninth at 32 mpg city/28 highway/30 combined.
Lexus was the first luxury brand to offer a hybrid vehicle with the RX 400h in 2005. Since then, it has introduced a new hybrid almost every year, including the GS 450h, LS 600h L, RX 450h, and most recently, the HS 250h. When the CT 200h premium compact hybrid arrives next year, Lexus will offer a total of five fuel-efficient, low emissions hybrid vehicles.
“As the luxury hybrid leader, Lexus provides a wide range of hybrid vehicles to variety of buyers,” said Mark Templin, group vice president and general manager of Lexus division.
