As part of the Toyota empire, Lexus was one of the first carmakers to realize the potential of hybrids, and the company now has a wide range of hybrids, competing in several market classes.
So successful has Lexus's hybrid range been, that the company has now sold over half a million--and with new models on the horizon, their popularity is only set to continue.
We've written about all of these vehicles here on Green Car Reports, so we've compiled information on each vehicle for a handy guide to the Lexus hybrid range.

The CT 200h is the smallest Lexus hybrid, and the first dedicated hybrid in the Lexus range. To the untrained eye it looks like any other Lexus, but beneath the skin is running gear from the all-conquering Toyota Prius, so efficiency is built-in.
For buyers, it offers many of the benefits of the Prius, but with a dash of extra prestige. Lexus has updated the CT 200h for the 2014 model year, and it now features the familiar 'Spindle' grille design common to other Lexus. It isn't any more efficient, but it isn't any more expensive either - you can read the full details in our most recent article.

Replacing the lackluster HS 250h, the ES 300h is a much more polished affair. Taking design cues from the aggressive GS 450h on the inside and out, the ES 300h actually shares the Toyota Camry Hybrid's innards--a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder, paired with an electric motor--giving it efficiency not far off the smaller CT 200h.
