A Bit of Lexus History

In 1989, Lexus revealed its entry level and flagship Lexus models. The entry level Lexus, the first of the two models, was named Lexus ES 250. The flagship model, on the other hand, was named as Lexus LS 400. The LS 400 was spoken well of by both automobile critics and vehicle consumers for presenting an astral luxury driving experience, with an exceptionally hushed and superior motor engine. Nonetheless, the Lexus vehicles were berated by some people for being a bit less electrifying compared to their European car brand rivals.

With superb features, Toyota had extended Lexus to international market, including the solid European car markets such as the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. More Lexus car models were manufactured for the series including the SC coupes series (SC 300 and 400), and Lexus’ GS 300, the initial luxury-working sedan.

Within the next several years, Lexus developed its line and have decided to add SUVs in their successful sedan series. This time Lexus developed their SUV line with the release of LX 450 and RX 300 models. At end of the decade, Lexus had marketed more than a million cars in the United States market.

Afterwhich, as they say, is history. Lexus became a trendsetter with the introduction of the world’s original luxury Lexus SUV hybrid: the RX 400h.
