He said Lexus “globally recognises the opportunity” of a sub-RX SUV, although he thought such a product was more important in the European, Australian and Japanese markets than the brand’s core US market.A compact SUV would be big news for Lexus Australia, which has just launched a front-drive, four-cylinder version of its RX as a way of providing a product priced to compete with models from the next size down such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.This move suggests a long wait for a true compact luxury SUV competitor, so a production version of the LF-LC hybrid coupe that emerged at Detroit is also a possibility – and Mr Evans spoke of the potential for two coupes in the Lexus line-up.Another likely unveil for Paris is a hot hatch variant of the CT200h and Mr Evans revealed its arrival is “a matter of when rather than if – or rather when and what because there are a few alternatives”.“I am quietly optimistic based on the feedback and the whispers I’ve had,” he said.The rumoured BMW M5-rivalling GS F sedan could also make an appearance – and Mr Evans said he is “certain the skunkworks is studying the options on how they’d do it”.Lead engineer for the GS, Yoshihiko Kanamori, has previously spoken about the potential for shoehorning a detuned version of the LFA’s 4.8-litre V10 engine into a GS and indicated that Lexus “has some plan for the next F model”.Asked whether Lexus would bow to the same pressure that has prompted BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz to downsize their flagship performance V8s and resort to turbocharging, Mr Evans pointed to the experience of journalists who told him they struggled to match those cars’ official fuel consumption figures in the real world.He also referred to a preference for the instant throttle response that comes with naturally aspirated engines, and the ability to properly modulate the throttle without being “overtaken by boost coming down the pipe”.Mr Evans revealed that “early publicity” for the third generation of the volume-selling IS sedan will begin towards the end of this year, suggesting a Detroit reveal in the New Year.The front-drive ES sedan, which sits between the IS and GS in the Lexus range overseas, is still under consideration for Australia, but the company has to first work out whether it has the engineering resources to adapt it for Australian Design Rule (ADR) certification.Mr Evans said the potential volume would have to be taken into account and suggested the ES – which has been confirmed for right-hand-drive production – would have to provide sufficient profit margins for the “cost recovery of those internal (engineering) resources”.On the other hand, he said existing ES owners “are a loyal troop who are still contacting us asking when we are releasing a new one” and that the car’s packaging provides more interior and luggage space than the GS while being of a similar size.“It is also styled quite differently; it is less muscular, less aggressive, a little bit more sophisticated and elegant,” he said.“It’ll appeal to an older, empty-nest audience as opposed to a 45-year-old audience; that’s certainly been the experience in America.”

Eight Toyota Manufacturing Facilities Recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for Improved Environmental Performance
Energy intensity is measured relative to efficiency improvements in process and equipment.
The ENERGY STAR Challenge For Industry program is only awarded to individual industrial sites. To gain recognition, the site’s company must be an ENERGY STAR partner. Earlier this year, Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA) received its eighth consecutive ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award for its continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficiency and management.
“Thanks to the efforts of our team members, Toyota has reduced our total energy use per vehicle over the last five years as we achieved greater energy efficiency across North America,” said TEMA Executive Vice President Steve St. Angelo. “This demonstrates that when good ideas are shared, great things can happen as we continuously identify new opportunities to reduce energy consumption while improving our processes.”
The eight Toyota facilities recognized by the EPA include: Bodine Aluminum (Jackson, Tenn., and St. Louis, Mo.); Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Alabama (Huntsville); Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (Cambridge and Woodstock, Ont.); Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana (Princeton); Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas (San Antonio); and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia (Buffalo).
Several examples of reduction in energy intensity include:

2. It Has Incredible Power. The Lexus GS 450H clocks in at an incredible 252 kW or 338 hp horsepower. The previous GS 350 by comparison only clocked in at 306 horsepower. Flooring the gas pedal on this hybrid is every bit as exhilarating as accelerating any other luxury vehicle on the market – And perhaps more so.
3. Better Fuel Economy. The combined EPA fuel efficiency rating of the Lexus GS 450H is 31 mpg. That’s a drastic improvement from the GS 350, which has only 23 mpg combined. And that’s with a 32 horsepower improvement!
4. Improved Trunk Space. The Lexus GS 450H has more trunk space than any of its predecessors. That makes it uniquely equipped to be both a daily functional car, as well as a luxury vehicle. It’s a fantastic car for both families and individuals.
5. Improved Interior Design. The Lexus GS 450H comes with a bamboo trimmed interior, stainless steel cuff plates, leather seats and more room than of its predecessors. The inside of the car feels lush yet powerful, just like the car itself. The driver’s seat is a bolstered 10-way electric adjustable chair, making it easy for anyone to get comfortable. The car comes with a 7 inch touch screen, fully equipped with rear camera, audio controls, climate controls and an optional navigation system.
6. Improved Electric Steering. The Lexus GS 450H runs off of a system called the Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS). In past versions of the Lexus GS, customers complained that the electric steering didn’t feel as “natural” as hydraulic steering. In the latest version of the GS, Lexus as more than fixed that. Today’s Lexus GS 450H feels incredibly responsive and smooth to drive.
7. Sport Mode. Feel like pushing your GS to the max? Just switch it to Sport Mode. This changes the suspension and allows you to make sharp twists and turns. You don’t feel the weight of the car at all. In fact, while your car is in sports mode, it feels more like you’re drinking a limber race car than a mid sized sedan.
8. Seat Warmer and Seat AC. Having leather seat warmers is pretty much expected across the board on today’s luxury cars. However, the Lexus GS 450H comes with a pretty unique feature: Seat AC. If you’re warm on a summer day, just switch on the seat AC for some personalized coolness.
9. Near Zero Cabin Sound. The car runs off a V6 hybrid engine and has the power of a V8 engine – But inside the cabin, it’s quieter than a sleeping baby. You don’t hear the engine at all, even when you’re pushing the gas. It’s fantastic for having conversations, listening to music or just having a peaceful and tranquil drive.
10. World Class Audio. In the audio department, the Lexus GS 450H takes no shortcuts. There are 14 speakers distributed through various points in the car. This Mark Levinson speaker system is designed to create an even sound throughout the entire vehicle. The bass reverberates strongly, as if you were listening to a Surround Sound system. To top things off, the car can fully integrate with the iPhone, allowing you to see your playlists from the display and control the tracks from your steering wheel.The Lexus GS 450H is truly a force to be reckoned with. It outstrips its previous versions by leaps and bounds, especially in fuel efficiency and power. When it comes to luxury, class, fuel efficiency and raw horsepower, the Lexus GS 450H has it all.

No doubt looking to fill the void left with the discontinued SC 430 luxury sports coupe, the LF-LC will see a production variant within three years as Lexus continues trying to gain lost ground against German luxury rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Unfortunately at the time of its debut, the automaker kept quiet as to what would power the LF-LC, other than the fact that it will feature a next-generation hybrid powertrain.
Since its debut at the auto show however, Lexus has received overwhelming response from the general public that the LF-LC Concept must be made. And well, when the general public is that favored towards your next-generation sports coupe, your only move is to produce it. Hopefully it lives up to expectations once it hits our streets.

The ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with Dual VVT-i that delivers 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,700. The six-speed sequential-shift automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) provides enhanced driving performance, fuel efficiency and smooth shifts. Low friction materials further improve efficiency and help with the ES 350‘s EPA-fuel economy estimates of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.
Both the ES 350 and ES 300h feature a Drive Mode selector. Normal mode provides a blend of performance and efficiency that is suited to everyday driving, while Eco mode favors fuel economy. Sport mode increases powertrain and steering responsiveness. The ES 300h adds an EV mode which allows short distance drives, at reduced speed, using only the power from the hybrid battery pack.
A stiffer chassis is achieved through lightweight, high tensile strength steel, added bracing and more body welds. Revised suspension geometry, shock absorber dampening and a quicker steering gear ratio deliver more precise handling while enhancing ride comfort.
The ES features a class-leading 10 airbags as standard equipment. The optional Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps detect vehicles in side blind spots. The RCTA alerts the driver to rear cross traffic when backing out of a parking spot. Available Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is integrated with automatic high beam dimming technology. The available Pre-Collision System (PCS) uses sub-millimeter wave radar, designed to detect certain obstructions traveling ahead and prepare the vehicle for a potential collision.
Lexus Safety Connect®, including Enhanced Roadside Assistance, an Emergency Assistance Button (SOS), Stolen Vehicle Location services, and Automatic Collision Notification, is offered on all new Lexus vehicles with a one-year trial subscription.
The standard Lexus Premium Sound System features eight-speakers with Automatic Sound Levelizer (ASL), in-dash CD player, USB/iPod® connectivity, and an integrated SiriusXM Satellite Radio receiver with a 90-day trial subscription. The available Display Audio package adds a seven-inch screen, HD Radio™ with iTunes® tagging, Bluetooth® audio, automatic phone book transfer, a vehicle information display and a rear backup camera.
An available 15-speaker 835 watt Mark Levinson® audio system features an eight-inch display screen, DVD audio/video. Exclusive GreenEdge technology from Mark Levinson doubles the output of the amplifier, while reducing energy consumption by fifty percent.
The optional HDD Navigation System includes voice command, an integrated backup camera, an eight-inch screen, and the next generation Lexus Enform® system with App Suite. Lexus Enform provides seamless connectivity with Bing™ search, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, Pandora®, Yelp® and Facebook Places through compatible smart phones. Apps are updated through over-the-air downloads, so new apps and content can be added as they become available. (A one-year subscription to Lexus Enform with App Suite is included.)

Lexus owners: no doubt yIf so, then spread the word (and add this tip to your graduation gift): Between now and January 3, 2013, college graduates receive a $1,000 reward toward the purchase or lease of a new Lexus CT 200h, IS 250, or IS 350.Nice, huh? Called the Lexus College Graduate Finance Program, the deal, of course, has a few qualifications, among them a requirement that the buyer must have graduated from an accredited four-year college, university, or registered nursing degree program during the last two years (or within the next six months) or have graduated from an accredited two-year college during the last two years or be enrolled in an accredited graduate degree program or have received a degree from an accredited graduate program during the last two years.
Also, at contract signing, the grad will need to show proof of present employment or future employment with a start date within 120 days of the contract date, plus Lexus financial services must deem his or her income sufficient to cover living expenses and vehicle payments.
All in all, a great way to get one’s adult car-ownership life off to a good start.

YK: With the ES we're using more ecologically sustainable materials that also express a progressive feel. So we came up with the combination of a leading-edge material plus Takumi craftsmanship. If the instrument panel upholstery were simply stamped, it would feel very mechanical. With stitching done at the Lexus Kyushu plant, the feeling changes and there's more warmth. Let me elaborate though. Warmth is important, but it doesn't need to be applied excessively, everywhere you look. One basic strength of Lexus is in the area of advanced technology. This is seen in areas such as the meters on the instrument panel. Balance is crucial to us, however, so in contrast we include handcrafted elements that are well designed and meticulously produced. This produces a more harmonious feeling. Tell us about the ambient lighting of the ES. YK: Rather than focus specifically on the ambient lighting on its own, we coordinated it completely with the interior. This follows our philosophy of seamless anticipation. For example, ceiling lights directed towards the gearshift area anticipate the start of driving. But more recently, we have introduced lighting linked to driving stages. When stopped, the ambient lighting is bright. As the door is closed, the ambient lighting is completely off. Once the engine is running, the lights come back on again. Then, as vehicle starts moving, they dim. This is our way to cue anticipation of the act of driving. The colors of ambient lights on the meter, linked to the drive mode selector, also have this communicative nature. With the hybrid, when you're running in Eco, Normal, or Sport, the colors change according to mode. In this way, the driver gets an enhanced feeling of driving. Generally speaking, how do you decide which luxury features to include in the ES? And how did you add additional value on top of that? SK: When it comes to the interior, there are things we can use to create a more luxurious feeling and thus add value. For example, the stitching or the ambient lighting. Often the best way to differentiate our design is to apply the principle of incisive simplicity, a principle that unites function with form in the most harmonious possible way. For instance, when you look at the door panel section, it's very minimal and we avoided adding character lines to the door. Instead, we removed items to increase the appeal of the strong body framework, coming out of the core essence of the car. This also reduces weight and, as a result, improves fuel efficiency. Additionally, if you take a look at the each corner of the ES, you can find what we call "double corners" design. From the side, the rear, and the front, the curve toward the wheel appears different. But as the wheel arch flares out, this design also contributes to the better aerodynamic performance. What's more, from the side, the ES looks compact, yet, from front or rear, it has a sportier crouching stance. These design changes highlight the Lexus value of "time in design": the more you look, the more you see and experience. Have there been any notable external influences on this car's design? One visual image that has inspired our design philosophy from the beginning is a picture of a person practicing kyudo, or Japanese archery. There is a feeling of stretching, of movement, even though it's a still image. And it's important that it's Japanese archery, as opposed to the Western version. In Western archery, the bowstring is symmetrical, and it takes a lot of strength to make the arrow fly far. In kyudo, though, the arrow is in the lower part of the bow, not the middle, and using that method, the arrow can be made to fly further while using less strength. This is a kind of minimalist intelligence. When you remove unnecessary items, you're left just with what is necessary. You can create maximum effects with minimum power. This is something that expresses a unique aspect of Japanese character. And it's a value that I think you can see and experience in the new ES.
One of the exclusive new design features of the ES is the stitching on the instrument panel upholstery. Why stitching?
