Luxury Cars: The 2007 Lexus GS 450h is the first hybrid vehicle that simultaneously evokes the passions of luxury lovers and environmentalist. Although it is expected to be available in the spring of 2006, it may be a bit later. The New York Auto Show is the site of its U.S. debut in March 2006. Unlike its practical ecological-oriented predecessors, this car offers high-end performance along with better gas mileage and low emissions.

The 450h features rear-wheel drive for smooth handling and a 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a high-output, permanent magnet electric motor that makes it perform like a 4.5 liter V-8. The unique technological coupling produces an efficient engine output that exceeds 300 horsepower with zero-to 60 mph in less than six seconds. Fuel economy numbers for the luxuriant hybrid are expected to be in the high 20s, meaning it will come in certified as an ultra-low emission vehicle. These are very impressive numbers for a car that features 18-inch, light alloy wheels.

The Lexus GS 450h has all the niceties found in the standard GS, and the price is expected to be around $60,000.
