Lexus GS 300h Debuts at Shanghai Auto Show
It might seem like your regular 2013 model year GS sedan, but the powertrain is new. The GS 300h is, as the name would suggest, a hybrid. It's powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder petrol engine with D-4S direct injection technology, and a compact electric motor.
Downsizing the engine from the 3.5-liter V6 will result in improved economy and reduced emissions. The 300h puts out only 110 grams per kilometer of CO2, which is quite impressive for an E-segment saloon.
The new model will go on sale in various markets later this year. Lexus UK has already announced its intentions to put the GS 300h on sale late this year.
