Lexus is planning to set up four dealerships across the country – Bengaluru, Mumbai and two in Delhi. Since the imported units won’t have India maps configuration, the first batch of the Lexus cars is devoid of navigation system. Initially, the RX450h SUV comes with a hybrid powertrain (3.5L V6 petrol + electric motor) producing 304bhp of power. In India, the Lexus RX450h will go up against the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Volvo XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid and Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Despite being a beneficiary of the central government’s FAME tax incentive, the new Lexus mid-size SUV is priced at Rs 1.07 crore for the RX Luxury variant and Rs 1.09 crore for the RX F-Sport version (ex-showroom).
