Lexus Hybrids Commercial: Milestones

Lexus heralds its expanded hybrid lineup with this commercial featuring a synchronized display of the Lexus hybrid models:

The 5.5 billion mile figure quoted in the video is based on an average of 10,000 miles per year, which is less than the typical figure used in the U.S.  It’s also worth noting that the luxury auto industry has increasingly embraced hybrid technology, with the market about to gain many first-generation hybrid models from a number of makes—similar to how the Lexus RX spawned the luxury crossover category. Lexus also looks to expand its lead in the alternative energy arena by bringing the hybrid powertrain to new segments, including the forthcoming CT 200h.

(In addition to this video, which is currently running on the YouTube front page, the site’s official Lexus channel gained several hybrid videos recently.)
