Lexus has introduced the entry-level GS 300h at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Designed to slot beneath the GS 450h, the GS 300h has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle petrol engine and an electric motor that enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 223 HP (164 kW). Performance specifications are still pending but Lexus expects the model will consume less than 4.7 L/100 km (50 mpg US / 60.1 mpg UK) and have CO2 emissions of 109 g/km.
On the styling front there isn't much to report but the F Sport variant can be equipped with LED fog lights and three new F SPORT-specific colors including F White, Starlight Black and Midnight Blue.
There's no word on pricing but Lexus says the GS 300h will be eligible for significant tax incentives in many European countries including France, Spain and the United Kingdom.
