Lexus is going to unveil a concept version of a new dedicated hybrid model at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show in January. We’re now getting more info about the new model thanks to Japanese magazine, Mag-X.
Mag-X claims that the new Lexus hybrid is going to be dubbed the HS250h and that the car is going to be a sedan. We do know that the new hybrid is going to share some of its mechanicals with the new Prius. It will be powered by a larger 2.4L engine mated to the hybrid system. Initially the car will use nickel-hydride batteries.
The Lexus HS250h (if that’s officially its name) is going to go on sale in the U.S. in 2010 and Japan in 2011.
