The HS 250h has an EPA rating of 35/34 mpg city/highway, and Lexus says the vehicle produces 70% fewer smog-forming emissions than the average new car. The HS 250h also offers four drive modes that allow drivers to choose how efficiently they want to drive: Normal, Power, Eco and EV.
The Premium trim will add such amenities as heated/ventilated leather front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, wood trim, 18-inch alloy wheels and heated exterior mirrors. Those are often standard from other near-luxury brands, like Acura.
The HS 250h will reach dealerships in August.
