The new grille is not in vain has missed the name “Diablo”, because it gives the design itself is a great expression. The Japanese have been using the predecessor created the first hybrid of the upper middle class, a pioneer status, the attempt is now directly extend to the successor. The planetary transmission is already known and the power is distributed effectively. Built-in, a nickel-metal hydride battery and the power of the 2012 Lexus GS 450h is equipped with 343 HP on the same level as its predecessor. One could improve the reduction of consumption. A hundred kilometers of the Japanese swallows namely less than 6.3 liters.

For less pollutants provide four catalysts and one can assume that they will also feed into future Lexus models. 200 hp and 275 Nm brings the electric motor, with the one exception of the labor force does not even notice that it exists. It operates almost silently and is fed by a hybrid battery, which speeds for city driving and 50 km/h and creates two kilometers.
