Just five months after its global debut, Lexus India today unveiled the seventh generation ES 300h hybrid electric sedan in India, . Built on the all-new Global Architecture – K (GA-K) platform, the ES 300h is powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder petrol engine combined with the new, fourth-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive System.
“We are excited to present the new ES in India, in such a short span after its global launch. The ES offers refinement and luxury, in a sedan that is visually striking, and elegantly comfortable, and we are certain that it will continue to find favor with discerning guests in India,” said N Raja, Chairman, Lexus India.
Deliveries of the new ES 300h have already been scheduled across the country, over the next three months, with each car being delivered in signature Lexus style – arriving on a flatbed with a full tank of fuel, and delivered in an event crafted by Lexus based on their knowledge of the guest.
“The new ES 300h embodies a level of superior craftsmanship, design, and innovation, that is set to redefine executive sedans, with its dynamic performance,” said P B Venugopal, President, Lexus India. “It has been crafted for the connoisseur, and has been designed to deliver an exquisite experience for each passenger; the hallmark of Lexus luxury.”
The ES 300h is powered by a Euro 6 compliant new hybrid electric system coupled with a four-cylinder petrol engine that delivers a mileage of 22.37 km/l, and a combined 160 kW of total power. Comfort and convenience is delivered by the console mounted climate and audio controls along with the heated and adjustable semi-aniline seats. The redesigned ES features a refined and tranquil in-cabin experience, which enriches the audio from the 17 speaker Mark Levinson Pure Play system. A wide range of nine colors make up the exterior paint palette, including a new shade of beige, designed specifically for the ES. The interiors of the ES feature four color schemes and three types of trim. The ES 300h also features a class leading 10 airbags, Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, and an Anti-theft system, with break-in and tilt sensors.
