Lexus Australia hybrid sales on a roll

The local arm of Japanese luxury carmaker, Lexus, is riding the crest of a hybrid wave, with its range of electrified vehicles accounting for around 30 per cent of local sales. And while Lexus has confirmed its first all-electric vehicle, the crossover UX300e with 400km of range, will go on sale in China and Europe this year, it’s unlikely to make its way Down Under anytime soon.

2021 Lexus LS facelift announced with semi-autonomous technology

The 2021 Lexus LS update has been announced, bringing semi-autonomous driving tech to the brand's flagship luxury sedan. Lexus has given the big LS a more conservative look than has been seen from the brand in recent years – doing away with the hooked cutaway that previously ran out of the LS's main headlight unit – but has offered the very latest in exterior and interior materials. Suspension and chassis refinements have been developed to reduce noise and improve passenger comfort.
