Japanese manufacturer Lexus announces that it has sold more than two million electrified vehicles worldwide since the launch of the RX 400h in 2005.
While electrification is all the rage in the automotive industry, Lexus succumbed to it for a long time now. The Japanese manufacturer has indeed launched its first electrified vehicle in 2005. It was the RX400h.
Since then, 16 years have passed and the firm proudly announces today that it has crossed the bar of 2 million electrified vehicles sold worldwide, of which 480,000 in Europe. Its most popular model in this area is the RX SUV with 518,000 units sold. It is followed by the ES sedan (384,000) and the compact CT (372,000).
“Since 2005, sales of Lexus electrified vehicles have avoided the emission of 19 million tonnes of CO2 in the air. “, rejoices the manufacturer, which presents itself as “the pioneer of electrification on the premium market”.
Lexus now markets nine electrified models (hybrid or 100% electric) in approximately 90 countries around the world. “Globally, electrified vehicles accounted for 33% of Lexus sales in 2020. In Western and Central Europe, their share is even higher, at 96%. », Specifies the brand, which does not intend to stop there.
By 2025, Lexus promises “20 new or improved models, including more than 10 electrified models (100% electric, hybrids and plug-in hybrids). Within 4 years, the goal is to offer electrified versions on all models in the range. By this date, electrified vehicles should therefore represent more than 50% of Lexus’ global sales.
In 2021, the Nippon will launch its first plug-in hybrid model, followed by a brand new 100% electric model in 2022.
