ALL NEW, NEXT GENERATION LEXUS ES 300h DRIVES INTO INDIA
Emotional Design Reflects New Capabilities
Hybrid Electric Sedan Delivers Exceptional Comfort and Dynamic Performance
Bangalore/Mumbai/New Delhi, India (19 July 2018
A key element of the new ES 300h is the all-new Global Architecture – K (GA-K) platform. More than just an engineering achievement, the GA-K platform gave the designers the flexibility to create a vehicle that’s as visibly striking as it is enjoyable to drive.
Its lower stance and proportions reflect its performance capabilities, and the slim LED headlamps with distinctive L shaped marker lights give the ES 300h a stunning new appearance that guarantees a second look. In keeping with the Lexus spirit of hospitality or omotenashi, passenger comfort, a hallmark of the classic ES range remains the highlight in the seventh-generation as well.
Designed for those who like to travel with their friends and family, the driver’s control panel and display have been moved closer to the driver, to provide extra space for the front passenger, guaranteeing a relaxed journey. Rear passengers are assured of an equally comfortable ride with an extended legroom of 998.6 mm, made possible by the longer wheelbase.
Guided by human-centered design principles, console mounted climate and audio controls along with adjustable and heated semi-aniline seats, and the 17 speaker Mark Levinson Pure Play system, create the perfect ambiance for those accustomed to immersive sophistication wherever they go.
“The Lexus ES has undoubtedly been one of our most well-loved vehicles, and this new generation model builds on its strengths to offer a driving experience that is as powerful and exciting, as it is elegant and sophisticated

Crafted for those who value not just a high-performance drive but a safe and secure one as well, the ES 300h includes a class leading 10 airbags, Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, and Anti-theft system, with

For the perfectionist who demands a range of options, the interiors feature four color schemes, and three types of trim, in addition to the array of nine eye-catching paint colors available on the exterior. Along with Black, Chateau and Topaz Brown, the ES also introduces a light new Rich Cream interior that offers a striking contrast to the deep brown dash and roof trim. The ES offers two shades of Shimamoku wood trim (black, brown), as well as light-colored Bamboo. The mark of Takumi craftsmanship is evident in the new ES, in the soft padding of the instrument panel, where each stitch is embedded into materials for a 3-D effect.
“The new Lexus ES 300h takes comfortable elegance to the next level and presents a vehicle that sets new benchmarks in its class. Every element in the ES 300h is a reminder that nothing is crafted like a Lexus. From the sleek new look to the impeccably finished interiors, the ES 300h is the perfect choice for guests who redefine the parameters of success and achievement, through their work,” said P B Venugopal, President, Lexus India.
