Diplomatic sales


Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation.

Lexus originated from a clandestine flagship sedan project that began in 1983. Thousands of drawings and 8 full-sized clay models were built before Lexus engineers and management were happy with the design. This car became the famous LS 400 that launched the Lexus brand. Lexus engineers went to great lengths to ensure their first limousine, the LS400, had the best possible match between engine, transmission and suspension to ensure a smooth and responsive drive. The LS400 and the ES250 models are unveiled to the world at the Detroit and Los Angeles auto shows in January 1989. The reaction of the media and public alike is overwhelmingly positive.

Since 1989, Lexus has developed a reputation for vehicle reliability and customer service, as measured by independent surveys. In 2012 J.D. Power and Associates U.S. Customer Service Index (CSI) study Lexus ranks highest in customer satisfaction with dealer service among luxury brands and receives an award for a fourth consecutive year.

Building on this excellence, we always aim to go beyond the incremental, using new technology and radical, progressive thinking to innovate and push boundaries.

Lexus Hybrid Drive – an engineering breakthrough that now powers the world’s first range of Full Hybrid luxury cars, including the newest intelligent sporty theIS300h, the RX450h crossover, the GS300h and GS450h full hybrid sedans, the CT200h the world’s first full hybrid compact and the LS600h the ultimate Lexus flagship.
