Lexus Hopes RX400h Will Afford Wealthy a Guilt-free SUV
Finally, a hybrid for high rollers.
Toyota Motor Corp., whose fuel-efficient Prius compact was the world's first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle when it went on sale in Japan in 1997, is about to launch the first luxury hybrid: the Lexus RX 400h sport utility vehicle.
Waiting lists, already common with the Prius, are piling up for the SUV, due in showrooms by mid-April. Toyota dealers nationally have taken orders for 11,900 of the 24,000 being allotted for sale in the United States this year.
