That is one of the most silent cars ever...I once had an opportunity to get a ride in it and the comfort is unmatchable...

But lovely car, none the less. Love the blue Lexus symbols on the grille, and the boot. IMO the best luxury sedan for battling traffic, and saving the environment a bit.
I don't think the symbol is blue, I think its just the sunlight. If I am wrong correct me.

it gives more than 20mpg , its actually the most frugal of its class , saw it in fifth gear & loved its looks , though lacks the presence of the S class , but still looks much better than its ugly predecessor .

Default lexus hybrid

the speedo shows ony till 180 on that model cause its a japanese model and the speed limit in japan for factory tuned cars is only till 180 and cars are forbidden to go over!!
so i guess lexus limited it and put the speedo only till 180.

funkydevil - that is probably the one for the japanese market. most cars in japan are limited to 180kmph.

why is the large control unit in the rear blocking the A/C vents ???
btw it could be limited for efficiency reasons and so that Greenpeace activists dont stone this car !!! LOL

thats an incredible looking car there but the digital clock, the a/c vents and the hazard button makes it resemble a camry for some reason.

Now thats a some great taste... not to forget a very sensible one too with the rise in fuel cost.

Maybe a person paying over a crore for this machine would care about fuel costs much, it does add some peace of mind to the whole equation.

What FE figures is it delivering in Mumbai traffic?

The car is an English version and so is not restricted to 180kmph.

hmmm ive seen this car at the lexus dealer in london...i think the front looks really ugly....its too big and badly designed would prefer the Sclass or A8 anyday but the car is pretty good overall for all the features it comes with! so how much is it gonna cost the buyer in india? it costs about 70k here...so i guess 1.5cr??

Default Blue sign.

@spawnofsatan

By blue sign/badge, i meant the outline. Supposed to be a special badging for Lexus hybrid vehicles, dunno if there is any science behind it. Pics below.
