The stylish Lexus IS made its debut in Detroit earlier this year, but was missing an important model: the hybrid gas-electric 300h.
Spotted for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, it’s expected to use a version of the 200 hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that’s used in the Lexus ES300h. While the bigger ES300h gets 40 mpg on the American EPA cycle, the IS300h could bring in 50 mpg on the European tests.
The impressive F-Sport trimmings will also be available on the IS300h, including the LFA-inspired digital dash. So far Americans have been left in the dark about the new IS hybrid, but expect it to eventually make its way to our shores.
In the mean time, check out these live photos of the IS300h from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show floor.
