Lexus has begun production of the ES 300h at the Bangalore plant in India, with deliveries to begin this month. This marks the first location outside of Japan and North America where Lexus models are produced. It’s expected that the NX will also be manufactured at the same facility.
The luxury market in India is currently 35,000 units per year. Lexus sold approximately 550 cars in 2019, for a very modest market share of 1.5 percent.
