Hybrid-only era over - Lexus EVs and PHEVs coming

4 December 2019

Lexus will have another very good year in 2019. Sales have risen strongly in China, and in Europe too, while the brand is gaining ground in Japan. The US remains easily the number one market but whereas hybrids do well in most other countries, that's no longer the case there. Toyota is therefore planning a multi-powertrain strategy for Lexus, offering different choices for different regions.

Is Toyota's hybrid Avensis replacement any good?

27 November 2019

In some circles, the Toyota Camry is a Marmite (or should that be Vegemite?) car. Y'love it or hate it. Some residents of Australia, one of several countries including the US, Japan and Russia where the model has been manufacture or assembled, are particularly dimissive. Old mate's car, grandma spec, rep's special, etc. Which clearly ignores the many non-enthusiast buyers who want something sensibly priced to buy and maintain, reliable, and a dealer nearby. If a largish, electrified, non-premium D-segment saloon/sedan, ticks the right boxes with a private buyer or fleet operator, this revived nameplate is worth a look.

Why the Lexus ES is China's number one import

25 November 2019

Might the ES succeed for Lexus when the great looking and highly capable GS seemingly could not? The latter, also a 5m long saloon, is almost eight years old and probably won't be replaced, while the year-old ES is a brisk seller in many countries, China especially. Newly available in Britain, the ES 300h should in theory have strong appeal to many in the Mercedes E-Class segment.
