The much-awaited Lexus luxury brand has finally entered the Indian market with the launch of the Lexus ES300h and the RX 450h. The entry-level ES300h sedan is priced at Rs 55.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the bookings for the car have already started across India. Toyota’s luxury brand, Lexus’ first dealership will be opened in Mumbai, followed by other metro cities including once in Bangalore and two in New Delhi. While Toyota and Lexus will have separate dealerships, they will share same service network with different bays for both brands.
The ES300h will take on mid-sized luxury cars including Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A7, BMW 5 Series and the Volvo S90. It is also the only hybrid car in its league. The new models come to India through CBU route from Toyota’s homeland Japan. These CBU units miss out on the navigation system as these come devoid of India maps configuration. Since Lexus models are routed to India from Japan, these come equipped with similar options akin to the Japanese models.
To start with operations, Lexus brings two SUVs and one premium sedan. The ES300h sedan is based on the Camry and is powered by the same 2.5-litre petrol engine coupled to an electric motor. Power is transmitted to the wheels via a CVT automatic gearbox.
