On this video I will be giving a tour of the all new 2010 Lexus HS250 Hybird sedan. The Lexus HS is a dedicated hybrid vehicle introduced by Lexus as a new entry-level luxury sedan in 2009.[1] Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2009, the HS 250h went on sale in July 2009 as a 2010 model in Japan, followed by its debut in the United States in August 2009. The HS 250h represents the first dedicated hybrid vehicle in the Lexus lineup, as well as the first offered with an inline four gasoline engine.[2] Bioplastic materials are used for the vehicle interior. The HS 250h's platform is based on the third generation Toyota Avensis, itself related to the traditional gasoline engine Toyota Allion sold from 2001 to 2007. The Toyota Sai, a non-luxury model based on the HS 250h, was launched in Japan in October 2009.[4] With a total length of 184.8 inches, the Lexus HS is slightly larger than the Lexus IS in terms of size,[5] but still smaller than the mid-size Lexus ES. According to Lexus, the HS designation stands for Harmonious Sedan. Lexus HS250 also shares its platform with the Toyota Pirus Hybird.

More Info Below:

The gasoline-powered portion of the HS 250h powertrain is the 2.4L 2AZ-FXE inline four engine. The 2AZ-FXE produces 147 hp (110 kW) and 105 ft·lbf (142 N·m) of torque at 4000 revolutions per minute.[13] This is assisted by a 40 hp (30 kW) electric motor for a total combined output of 187 hp (139 kW).[13] The HS 250h uses hybrid drivetrain elements from the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

HS 250h inline-four engine with electric motors
The HS 250h's EPA fuel economy is estimated at 35 miles per US gallon (6.7 L/100 km; 42 mpg-imp) in the city and 34 miles per US gallon (6.9 L/100 km; 41 mpg-imp) on the highway.[14] The HS 250h engine runs on the Atkinson cycle, and the powertrain uses a continuously variable transmission.[13] A 90 pounds (41 kg) nickel metal hydride battery situated beneath the rear seats serves to power the electric motor.[7] An additional system included on the HS 250h's Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain is an exhaust-heat recovery system to reduce engine warm-up periods (optimizing engine start-stop times).[7] The Atkinson cycle configuration and exhaust-heat recovery system is also used on the 2010 Lexus RX 450h.

The HS 250h can be operated in either driver-selectable EV, Eco, or Power modes. The EV mode is suited for short-distance pure electric driving at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour (32 km/h),[14] the Eco mode can be selected for the greatest fuel efficiency in mixed gas-electric driving,[7] and the Power mode offers more performance in contrast to the Eco mode.[14] The 0-60 time is listed at 8.4 seconds and the top speed is 112 miles per hour (180 km/h).
