The source also mentioned that the company has already delivered 35 units from the Lexus marquee, out the 75 orders that they have reportedly received. All these units were delivered to the respective customers at their doorsteps. The company is said to inaugurate its Mumbai showroom in the February-March 2017 period. The outlet, which would be known as the ‘Lexus Boutique’, will have its Mumbai showroom located at the Taj Santacruz Hotel near the international airport.
Coming back to the RX 450h, the model draws power from an Atkinson V6 petrol engine mated to a Lexus Hybrid Drive that produces a combined output of 308 hp. This engine sends power to all four wheels via an eight speed automatic transmission.
A few highlights of the RX 450h include a Heads-Up Display (HUD), 12.3 inch multimedia display, Mark Levinson Audio with Rear-Seat Entertainment system, Lexus Enform infotainment system and a power operated tail gate with open/close function via gesture. A number of safety features under Lexus Safety+ will also be offered.
