October 10, 2021

Bengaluru: Luxury car manufacturer, Lexus India, has on Friday introduced the new ES 300h executive sedan.

The model, that has been the most successful for Lexus to date, is recognized for its elegant design, renowned quietness, class leading craftsmanship and self-charging hybrid electric technology. The new ES 300h will see refinements that further strengthen these qualities, enhancing the car's styling, drive feel, and responsiveness to provide the amazing Lexus experience.

Launched in India in 2017 and globally in 1989, the ES has been a key model in the Lexus line-up, with its global cumulative sales at approximately 2.65 million units across more than 80 countries and regions.

In 2020, Lexus India announced the local production of the ES 300h making it Lexus' first 'Made in India' vehicle, showcasing the brand's commitment to the Indian market. The new ES 300h will also be locally produced & will continue the legacy.

Earlier this year, Lexus India announced the extension of the hybrid battery warranty from five years to eight years for its entire range of Hybrid Electric Vehicles, to enhance guests' peace of mind and the Lexus ownership experience. The new ES 300h will also come with the unmatched 8 year hybrid battery warranty and will be powered by the same hybrid technology that has won 4 consecutive titles from 2018 to 2021 at the world's oldest active endurance racing event, '24 Hours of Le Mans racing'.

Lexus International Chief Engineer Tetsuya Aoki: 'Our goal was to deepen the high quality of the ES and to add new value. In addition to further improving quietness and ride comfort, we pursued linearity in vehicle movement, in response to steering wheel operation, that is faithful to the driver's intentions. When it comes to styling, we refined the elegance that is characteristic of the ES, and we have created a new modernity. In development, to exceed guest expectations, we identified elements that could be improved, and we thoroughly raised every detail to the highest levels of completion. I would like people to experience by driving the ES, the thoughts of the development team, which is closely adhered to the idea of 'Always On' with the aim of making ever-better cars.'

Commenting further on the announcement, P.B Venugopal, President, Lexus India said, 'We are elated to announce the latest Lexus ES 300h to the Indian market. We are proud to say that the ES 300h has been the most successful model in our portfolio and we believe the new ES 300h will continue to captivate more guests with its incomparable quietness, hybrid technology, elegant design and unmatched craftsmanship. Being a brand that aims to provide amazing experiences to its guests, we are committed to offer new products with advanced technologies that will benefit our guests and create a delightful Lexus ownership experience. We are confident, with the technology and feature enrichment, the ES 300h will continue to be the favourite choice of our discerning guests and extend its lead in the luxury executive sedan segment.'
