New Lexus Hybrid Commercial Takes Aim at Electric Vehicles


Lexus USA pokes fun at pure-electric vehicles in their latest hybrid commercial:

It’s all well and good to show how the benefits of hybrids over pure electric, though I wonder at the reasoning behind taking such a contrary opinion. Range-anxiety is a very real thing, but the technology is only going to get better — in fact, parent company Toyota has accelerated their EV development and plan to have an EV on sale by 2020.

(Another thing — if Lexus is so proud of their hybrids, why isn’t the IS 300h available in North America?)
