sgCarMart – So successful has Lexus' hybrid range been that whenever one mentions the word 'hybrid', the Japanese marque comes to mind, just like its parent company Toyota.
Lexus was one of the first carmakers to realise the potential of hybrids, and the company now has a wide range of hybrids, competing in several market classes.
In this case, we are talking about the compact luxury sedan segment. Back in 1998, the IS was originally sold under the Toyota Altezza nameplate in Japan until the Lexus brand was introduced in 2006. The European and US versions of the IS made their debuts in 1999 and 2000 respectively.
Introduced in January 2013, the new IS range includes the IS250, IS350 and the first hybrid version of the IS - IS300h - as well as performance-tuned F Sport versions.
Locally, only the IS250 and the IS300h with F Sport variants will be available, doing without the IS350.
