The opening party at the Clearwater, Florida Lexus was jam packed with previous Lexus owners and those who were ready to buy the new hybrids. The silver cars were covered as hundreds of people gathered in anticipation and Merlot and at shrimp and chicken kebobs.
"All of our sales are actually pre-sales," said Christina Flores, a Sales and Financial Services Manager for Lexus of Clearwater. The models on the floor were a great example as they were also pre-sold. The owners agreed to show off their new vehicles.
The new hybrids sport many great things in a challenging economy while still offering the luxury we expect from a Lexus vehicle. The sleek exterior invite you in to a world of luxury and comfort.
I found that the series of sensors, Intuitive Parking Assist determines the distance of nearby vehicles and objects, alerting the driver through visual and audio cues, was very helpful. Who wants to damage their new luxury car which starts in costs at $106k?
As I sat in the front seat of the new Lexus I felt like I could make a quick dash to Atlanta and back (a mere 7 hour drive) and still feel like I wasn't tired. The cabin noise was reduced as if I were in my own world. I was truly an executive - with an available DVD entertainment system, power rear-seat recliner, infrared temperature sensor and a rear-seat foldaway table, the LS 600h L offers its passengers the pinnacle of comfort.
The hybrid performance was beautiful - Powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine and a high-output, electric drive motor, the LS 600h L is capable of producing 438 total system horsepower . I have to say I've never been in a car where it gave me a choice to save gas. You can either drive on the regular engine or choose the power option, which runs on all electricity. Sweet!
Go and get your own at your nearby Lexus dealer.
