Lexus has unveiled the GS 300h sedan at the ongoing Auto Shanghai. The newest member of the Lexus GS family sees a 2.5 litre direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine work together with an electric motor to give a total output of 223 PS – essentially the same as the IS 300h‘s powertrain.

Lexus is targeting CO2 emissions of below 110 grams per km with this one, and fuel economy should be in the 6.0L/100 km ballpark. In comparison, the 343 PS GS 450h manages a not-too-far-off 6.3L/100 km.

The fourth-gen Lexus GS range was launched in Malaysia a full year ago – read our thoughts on the Lexus GS 250 and GS 350, both in Luxury trim, here.
