In order to keep up with the Japanese demand for the HS 250h, Lexus will be tripling production of the new hybrid.
As reported by the Nikkei (by way of The Green Car Congress), even after producing 2,000 units in July, there are still 8,600 pre-orders for the hybrid sedan. This is seventeen times the expected monthly sales estimates of 500 units, and can only be consider good news for the brand in its home country.
There’s no telling how sales will be in North America, but there’s a similar level of demand, Lexus may have to increase production even further.
