    Introducing the All-New 2019 Lexus ES 350 & ES 300h

    Did they think that ES300h AWD would be coming to Europe? Kind of hard to believe... I am sure ES350 AWD variant will come to Russia which is big market for Lexus Europe, but ES300h? Who knows though since Prius now has AWD.

    New Solid-State Battery Developed for Lexus Electric Vehicles

    It is not that crazy hard for Lexus, unlike Germans though... TMC bread and butter cars are hybrids that have very low CO2 levels, so there is much less to compensate...

    Lexus Sales In China 2019

    Despite what people think, US and Chinese markets are in many ways similar... just like Russian market too. Now Europe, completely different story and it will be always very hard for Lexus to compete really good there.

    Lexus May 2019 Sales Report

    definition of luxury is sitting in the car and touching/working with it... Rav4 is more luxurious than before, it is not luxury vehicle. Did you have a chance to try it? I came away impressed from new Rav4 Hybrid (2WD) top end equipment, but it is still nowhere close to Lexus... for instance...

    Lexus May 2019 Sales Report

    Whenever some new model comes out from Toyota, we have a year or two when people claim it is much better than Lexus... I like new Rav4, and it is a lot more luxurious than before, but it is not a luxury vehicle by any means. I am sure same will happen with Highlander and new RX. For us who are...

    Introducing the Updated 2020 Lexus RX & RX F SPORT

    yeah... and in general, maybe first european TMC vehicle with carplay? European system lags a lot compared to the US one, and looks worse on Toyota's too... I know Rav4 salesmen were telling everyone that Android Auto support is coming by the end of the year to existing vehicles.

    More info on euro newsroom: https://newsroom.lexus.eu/new-lexus-rx-makes-world-debut/ Blade ahs seems interesting, first lexus with apple CarPlay in Europe, and first TMC vehicle with Android auto I think. Infotainment in Europe for TMC is handled by different company and usually has...

    Introducing the Updated 2020 Lexus RX & RX F SPORT

    Update looks good overall, infotainment was a sore point with reviewers for a long time and now it looks that they covered literally every angle possible with touch, pad, huge screen, android, apple, Alexa... They now have everything.

    Introducing the Updated 2020 Lexus RX & RX F SPORT

    Removing stalk is probably one of the worst ergonomic decisions they ever made. Old stalk was very intuitive and easy to use, easier than buttons on steering wheel. Plus new Toyotas get buttons on steering wheel too.

    Just-Auto's late 2018 predictions for the future of Lexus

    their thinking is likely that they will start using BMW 3.0l turbo in some cars and on others use TMC's 3.5tt.... which makes no sense at all and makes me want to discredit everything they have written. And why would LC convertible be lighter?

    Official Toyota & Lexus Future Powertrain/Product Discussion

    it is not going to be homologation special though... this engine should be the basis of whole range of GRMN products.

    Official Toyota & Lexus Future Powertrain/Product Discussion

    of course, without Tesla/Panasonic JV... but Panasonic has booked losses on that even this year, so it is really not a great business to be in.

    Official Toyota & Lexus Future Powertrain/Product Discussion

    Indeed... I expect them to do around 2m hybrids by the end of 2020, as they are increasing production of batteries worldwide. Not sure if everyone is also aware that Panasonic and Toyota joined their battery companies and R&D into one this year, and everything Panasonic battery related and...

    Official 8th Generation (2018+) 010B Camry Discussion

    2018 Camry and Sienna are getting CarPlay and Android auto from Toyota via update... So I would guess all vehicles with Entune 3.0 will get it.
