Lexus will be offering fleets a first drive in its new full hybrid IS300h at this year’s Company Car in Action (CCIA).
CO2 emissions for the new IS 300h start at 99g/km for the SE model whilst the Luxury version emits 103g/km and even the IS 300h F Sport and Premier grades are an impressive 109g/km.
With deliveries from mid-July, the new IS 300h is likely to be on the shopping list of many company car drivers making a test drive a must for fleet decision-makers at CCIA, which takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground on June 11 and 12.
Lexus promises a dynamic drive in the new IS 300h with an output of 220bhp/164kW, nought to 62mph acceleration in 8.3 seconds and a 125mph top speed whilst returning 65.7mpg fuel consumption for the SE model, fitted with 16-inch wheels.
The rear-wheel drive sports saloon can be found alongside other members of the Lexus Hybrid Drive family made up of SUV RX 450h with class leading 145g/km CO2 emissions; luxury saloon LS 600h which features a 5.0 litre V8 engine and delivers 439bhp (327kW); and sports executive GS 450h powered by a 206bhp (154kW) 2.5-litre V6 Dual VVT-i petrol engine.
In S guise, the compact CT 200h has a CO2 rating of 87g/km ensuring it remains eligible for the 100% first year write down allowance following changes in April which saw eligibility reduce to sub-95g/km.
The stunning LFA, of which only 500 were produced, will also make an appearance at CCIA and attendees will be able to experience the supercar as a passenger with a professional driver.
