This follows along the same lines of other brands we’ve seen, but, for the most part, only from brands that don’t have a mainstream arm to go along with the luxury models offered. Adding autonomy at higher levels makes more sense because the higher price and expectation of the Lexus brand makes it the right place to start and build on what we’ll see in the future. (more…)

The Battle at the Top

When it comes to the flagship vehicles of different manufacturers the expectation is that you have a vehicle which gives you every feature and benefit the manufacturer can think of and add.

Let’s look at them both. (more…)

Lexus Hopes to have a Luxury FCEV by 2017

The fuel cell vehicle industry is barely getting going and Toyota is already hoping to expand into their luxury brand, Lexus. Their goal: to do for the FCEV industry what they did with the hybrid industry with the Prius.
