At the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, Lexus expanded its GS lineup with the addition of a 300h model.

The GS 300h will target fleet and business customers, powered by a 2.5-liter gasoline engine paired with an electric motor. It’s the same hybrid setup found in the IS 300h which has a total system output of 220 hp.

Like the IS 300h, the GS 300h won’t be making its way to American anytime soon, but will be sold in all other global markets including China, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

New full-LED foglights will be offered with the GS 300h along with a redesigned, full-color heads-up display.

A similar engine is equipped in the ES300h (which is sold in North America) where it makes 200 hp and a combined 40 mpg.
