Recession-Proof Cars?
Lexus HS250 Hybrid Projected to Sell 25,000 Units in First Year

By: Shelby Lee Walsh (Rockstar) Jun 16, 09

It is surprising to hear Toyota say they will sell 25,000 Lexus HS250 Hybrids in its first year because, let’s face it, the auto industry has taken a turn for the worse. Sales are way down.

Greenpacks.org states the “Lexus Hybrid is Toyota’s first hybrid-only luxury model which will be sold in the US… [and] with 60% of the entry level sedan buyers considering a hybrid model, Toyota could actually achieve its targets.”

With gas prices so high, it is only natural that people look to fuel-efficient cars. Looks like we’ll have to wait to see if Toyota’s projections are true because the Lexus HS250 doesn’t go on sale until later this summer.
