The Lexus RX450h has received its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The new model goes on sale next year (summer in Europe).

Few details are available, but in the UK the new-generation RX will be an all-hybrid range, with the RX 450h replacing both the current RX 400h hybrid and RX 350 petrol engine models.

Priced from GBP36,273, Lexus says the RX 400h ‘gives great fuel consumption (34.9mpg combined cycle) and carbon dioxide emissions (192g/km) that earn a low tax rating’.

Lexus says it will release further details early next year.
