About Lexus Lexus HS250H


  • The Lexus HS is a dedicated hybrid vehicle introduced by Lexus as a new compact executive car sedan in 2009.
  • Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2009, the HS 250h went on sale in July 2009 in Japan, followed by the United States in August 2009 as a 2010 model.
  • The HS 250h represented the first dedicated hybrid vehicle in the Lexus lineup, as well as the first offered with an inline-four gasoline engine.
  • With a total length of 184.8 inches, the Lexus HS is slightly larger than the Lexus IS, but still smaller than the mid-size Lexus ES.
  • Like the smaller Lexus CT, the larger Lexus ES and the Lexus RX FWD (which has also shared the same production line), but unlike other vehicles in the Lexus lineup, the HS features front-wheel drive, and as such has been offered as IS’s front-wheel drive counterpart.
  • In the U.S., sales for the HS 250h lagged other models, and dropped by nearly three-quarters in 2011, despite its success in Japan.
  • Between late May and early June 2012, Lexus removed the HS 250h from its U.S. sales lineup, while a larger front-wheel drive hybrid sedan, the ES 300h, went on sale for the latter half of 2012.
  • Lexus displayed the HS 250h for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in 2008, with plans to launch the vehicle in major world markets including the U.S. and Japan.
  • The resulting HS 250h would become the most fuel-efficient in the Lexus lineup at its debut.
  • At its launch, the HS 250h was also claimed to be the most fuel-efficient luxury vehicle in the U.S.5The CT 200h, launched in 2011, later surpassed the HS 250h‘s fuel economy ratings.
  • The HS 250h‘s platform was based on the third-generation Toyota Avensis, itself related to the traditional gasoline engine Toyota Allion sold from 2001 to 2007, and was based on 2.4-litre-engined Corolla with electric motors.
  • In July 2009, the HS 250h made its sales launch in Japan, with 1,500 pre-orders logged at its introduction.
  • This figure was reportedly three times greater than originally forecasted.
  • The Toyota Sai, a sister model sharing the same platform and hybrid drivetrain, was launched in Japan in October 2009.However, HS 250h was not slated for the European market, where the similarly sized IS 220d and Toyota Avensis were sold.
