Lexus HS 250h: the first in the world ...

A decade later, history repeated itself with the first for the Lexus HS 250h business-class hybrid sedan. Why first? The fact is that this car was created initially for a hybrid power plant. There is no gas or diesel equivalent for the Lexus HS 250h. And will never appear. In Japan, the number of orders for this car exceeded forecasts by 17 times. At 17! In order to get it, you must endure for half a year, which is also for the Land of the Rising Sun.

A stylish novelty that is not yet offered on the Russian market (yet!) Is also remarkable because Lexus engineers in this case managed to achieve an unprecedented level of recycling of materials used in the construction - 97%. A third of all plastics in the HS 250h are of plant origin. They can be completely recycled and reused dozens of times! Bioplastics are made specifically for Lexus from Bombay hemp and castor oilcake. At the same time, you should not think that such materials are too simple for a high-end car. They look no less solid than traditional ones. Just the other day, the Lexus HS 250h received the prestigious award for the best car interior in 2010, established by the American analytical publication Ward's Auto.

The Japanese calculated that the total carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere during their production are 20% lower than when stamping PVC parts. Complete recycling provides another plus - the plastic remains of a car that has spent its century will not lie in landfills for tens of thousands of years.

Reviews of the lucky ones who bought a HS 250h are full of enthusiasm. Lulling comfort, the highest efficiency, excessive dynamics and pride that you let people breathe clean air - this is worth the amount that is painted on the price tag of the model. Well, another small detail that can become a powerful argument for fans of Japanese quality - the HS 250h is not assembled in America, but in its historical homeland, in Fukuoka.
