Lexus India is now the fourth country to produce a Lexus model globally, and this has been kicked off with the start of production of the hot-selling ES300h. Known for its elegant design, renowned quietness, class leading craftsmanship and self-charging hybrid electric powertrain, the ES300h has received a few tweaks to keep with the times. These new changes not only further the overall experience of such a product, they also enhance the overall appeal of the luxury sedan.
The new ES300h benefits from a series of changes. To start with, it boasts better aesthetics through seamless appearance of the Lexus emblem on the car, storage space has been improved and there is easier accessibility around the centre console as well.
The ES300h now comes with the Lexus Dynamic Voice Recognition feature that makes it easy for the owner to operate and control a series of features without having to take their hands off the wheel or their eyes off the road. The luxury car has been upgraded with wireless Apple CarPlay, however Android Auto remains a wired feature.
There is a fair degree of personalisation available through the ‘profile function’ for which the owner can customise their own multimedia settings in order to have a more bespoke experience. Last but not the least, the new ES 300h gets an easy-to-use hands-free operation of the trunk.
The ES 300h Exquisite variant will be available at a starting price of Rs 59,71,000 and the ES 300h Luxury variant at a starting price of Rs 65,81,000.
