Lexus achieves cumulative global sales of 2 million EVs

Luxury brand Lexus eclipsed the milestone of 2 million global sales of electrified vehicles at the end of April 2021.

Since the launch of the RX400h in 2005, Lexus has been a pioneer of electrification in the luxury market, and the Lexus model lineup continues to evolve on the mission of balancing excellent driving performance with environmental sensitivity, said a press release.

Lexus electrified vehicles, it said, provide a wide range of options tailored to meet the needs of our guests and society.

Lexus now sells nine electrified models, including Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), in over 90 countries and regions around the world.

Globally, Lexus electrified vehicles accounted for one third of Lexus sales in 2020.  Currently, across the eight markets in Asia, electrified vehicles accounted for over 20 pc of regional sales in 2020. The company now plans to introduce its first luxury PHEV model in 2021 and an all-new BEV model in 2022.
