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 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.

The Lexus ES 300h is available at INR 59, 13, 000 (all-India ex-showroom).
