Lexis Building Smaller Hybrid

Lexis has plans to build a smaller hybrid model car to add to their line up. 

Very few details have been released, but the new model is expected to use a smaller-capacity engine than the 3.5-litre V6 used in the new GS450h. The 154bhp 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine – which is currently offered in the ES300h and Toyota Camry Hybrid saloons in North America, where it’s teamed with a pair of electric motors and a CVT gearbox – is a logical choice for the new model.

This car will start hitting showroom floors in late 2013.
