The 2010 Lexus HS 250h was released today by Lexus in Detroit at the 2009 NAIAS. The fourth hybrid to join Lexus’ line-up, this is the first dedicated luxury hybrid car in the world. That means there is no non-hybrid version available.

Sporting a 2.4 liter, 4-cylinder engine, the new Lexus generates 187 hp. An good news for those in wintery climates: it’s a front-wheel drive car. Expect to see the 2010 HS 250h in Lexus dealerships this summer.
