Is that right...is the hybrid the only powertrain for Europe? Obviously, the hybrid seems to be better for other markets. I've seen quite a few 2018 up LSs in my neighborhood, but never seen one with the hybrid badge. Lexus needs to bring a PHEV to market then. Magazines only test what they're given, so they can't speculate that a PHEV is better until they've driven it.
In Holland, the LS is only available in hybrid form. Not sure about other European markets, though due to tougher environmental regulations, I doubt that the regular LS will be available, and if it is, the price difference will be MUCH more than in the US. Of course, Lexus is a small player in Europe, but Lexus scored pretty well with the GS, IS and CT hybrids (The first two are not hybrids in US).
