Lexus HS 250h: A Prius For The Club

It turns out those we thought could be the 2010 Prius Read more on

The specifics of production are vague, the 2010 model year the vehicle will come to sooner-than-later so Lexus can rightly the new HS 250h is the first and, for a only dedicated luxury

DETROIT (Jan. 11, 2009) – today revealed the 2010 HS the world’s first dedicated hybrid vehicle, at the North International Auto Show. The HS will be Lexus’ fourth and the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its It also will be the first to utilize carbon-neutral Ecological materials in a new futuristic cockpit and design.

A welcomed addition to entry-luxury sedan lineup, the HS fits nicely between the IS sport sedan and the ES luxury Research has shown that than 60 percent of entry-luxury car would have considered a if available, and the HS will provide consumers with a viable option.

Equipped with first four-cylinder gas engine, the Atkinson-cycle powerplant is part of the Lexus Hybrid Drive which generates 187 total horsepower. The highly efficient engine, made possible by the Valve Timing with (VVT-i) system, allows the stroke to be longer than the stroke so that combustion can be more effectively used for of engine power. The HS 250h expected fuel efficiency be more than 30-percent than the most fuel-efficient currently in the Lexus lineup, earning a SULEV emissions utilizing regular 87-octane Among the technologies adopted in the four-cylinder engine are cooling oil jets; an optimized balance rate for improved Noise, and Harshness (NVH) characteristics; and a venting system mounted the radiator.

Like the all-new 2010 RX hybrid utility vehicle made its debut in November, the HS will include a new system to improve efficiency. The exhaust recovery system reduces warm-up time, thus it to stop earlier, more and for longer periods. A windshield infrared-ray (IR) reduction which helps keep the more cool, has been in order to decrease the amount of air needed to lower the cabin In addition to the exhaust heat system and the IR windshield, available LED headlamps also contribute to fuel efficiency and emissions.

The HS 250h sedan’s 0.27 coefficient (Cd) makes it the most aerodynamic in its class. management over the exterior, the under floor and through the air was extensively examined. A unique roof-panel design reduces and overall vehicle height, reducing drag and improving efficiency. The front spoiler, spoiler, rear under and diffuser fins all reduce Smooth A-pillar shape and the angle and curvature of the bumper panels also reduce turbulence, as does the increased of the fender side panels. The covers have been positioned for reduced drag, airflow restriction in the engine has been lowered by optimizing the profiles around the radiator.

Aerodynamic design has also to decreased wind noise. A transition between windshield with a sound-insulating inner and roof line has improved air and reduced turbulence.

As is appropriate for the dedicated luxury hybrid the HS 250h includes proactive of plant-based, carbon-neutral Ecological or bio-plastics in specific interior Ecological Plastic emits carbon dioxide during a lifecycle than plastic solely from petroleum. the areas of utilization will be an use in luggage-trim upholstery. Other are the cowl-side trim, door plate, tool box area, plate, seat cushions, and the tray behind the rear Overall, approximately 30-percent of the and luggage area is covered Ecological Plastic. Over the lifecycle of the vehicle, the HS 250h have approximately 20-percent carbon-dioxide emissions as a result of the Ecological Plastic trim

Like all Lexus hybrid significant time was spent in the HS 250h with optimized NVH Dynamic dampers at each point reduce noise and resonators improve intake air and optimized exhaust flow exhaust sound. Special dampen both engine and noise, while improved around doors, hood and reduce wind-noise penetration the cabin. Vibration has been by improving the shape and thickness of the points. In addition, power-window controllers have been from the LS luxury sedan, insure a slower, soft rate.

The HS 250h chassis design an outstanding ride and comfort the decreased NVH required by a Lexus The MacPherson strut front is designed to achieve both and braking control, and a positive feel. A double-wishbone rear provides excellent maneuverability, and comfort with a low spring that contributes to better and superior cargo space. springs, anti-roll bars and rebound springs are utilized and rear. The HS 250h will uniquely designed standard 17- and 18-inch wheels.

The rack-and-pinion system utilizes a brushless Power Steering (EPS) on the steering column, which improved steering feel, a in harsh feedback, and better by not draining engine power conventional hydraulic systems.

The EPS is an part of an available lane assist system, a new driver that adds smooth torque to help the vehicle in the center of the lane. The amount of torque is dependant on a lane-marker camera. It includes a lane warning feature that is to detect possible lane it then gives the driver an warning and provides feedback via the wheel to encourage corrective

The HS is slightly longer than the IS and is than both the IS and ES. It also has a couple distance (distance hip to hip front and rear passengers) any other vehicle in its class than the ES. The contoured front-seat also add to increased rear-seat

The HS features a unique advanced and an interior design that innovation and craftsmanship. The uniquely cabin has standard leather-trim a moonroof, Lexus premium systems, and a new standard multi-media The media features include technology, integrated satellite (subscription required), voice and USB iPod connectivity controlled via controls or a display screen. A multi-information display, located in the panel’s hybrid system gauge, is controlled via steering-wheel-mounted allowing the driver to easily various functions and information.

key element of the modern interior is new available Hard Disk (HDD) Navigation System, features a retractable navigation that is positioned well and up front in the dash. The positioning improve visibility and reduce eye movement. Similar to the new RX, the HS system the all-new Remote Touch that is both intuitive and and allows for easy use of the Navigation The controller is positioned on the center and is as natural to the driver’s hand as a mouse. It can also be customized to the level of haptic feedback.

The Navigation System also a new casual-speech voice recognition This allows drivers to more flexible, conversational for easier access and control of the climate and navigation functions. included are XM® NavTraffic® and along with XM Sports and information.

Also helping to driver eye movement is an optional Display (HUD). The HUD uses LEDs to make the display enough to be read even in sunlight.

A class-leading 10 airbags be standard on the all-new HS 250h as as active front head which help passengers in of certain types of rear-end The HS also will feature Vehicle Stability Control system and optional Pre-Collision with Dynamic Radar Control.

An available wide-view monitor helps the driver to hard-to-see areas. Using a mounted in the front grille, the provides a 190-degree front on the Navigation screen with the of a button on the steering wheel.

The HS 250h will also Lexus’ next generation systems, Lexus Enform and Connect. Safety Connect provide automatic collision stolen vehicle location, emergency and roadside assistance.

Enform’s Destination Assist operators who will help look up points of interest as shopping centers or other locations like Zagat-rated and then wirelessly send directly to the vehicle’s navigation

Lexus Enform’s eDestination will allow customers to up multiple points of interest on any and send them directly to the navigation system. This new feature will allow to send a total of 200 destinations at a to their vehicles.

The all-new HS 250h will reach nationwide in late summer.
