Lexus Hybird nears

Green SUV: the Lexus RX400H should be the first of many hybrids in its segment.

Next year Lexus is set to release the first hybrid SUV in Australia

21 Mar 2005

TOYOTA’S upmarket brand Lexus is on track to introduce the innovative 400H hybrid engine into the RX all-terrain wagon next year.

Toyota Australia executive chairman John Conomos said Australian engineers were finalising testing for the vehicle and, providing the outcome was successful, the 3.3-litre V6 petrol-electric engine would arrive – along with a mid-cycle refresh of the popular current car – in the first quarter of 2006.

He said Toyota/Lexus Australia was also considering introducing the engine in the recently released GS series.

"Almost all the popular cars, at some point in the future, will have a hybrid version," Mr Conomos said.
