Lexus to Introduce Europe to 450h Hybrid in Frankfurt

Toyota's set to show Europe that hybrid-drive cars can be performance-minded, despite also being big-ass sedans. The company will show the 300hp GS450h it unveiled at the New York Auto Show earlier this year at its Frankfurt booth in September. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6, supplemented by parent Toyota's Synergy Drive system, the 450h is said to do 60mph in six seconds while returning 25-30mpg. Not bad. But you're right, it's not that impressive. Still, it's a hybrid, which means bux, at least among stateside buyers. But will Europeans fall for it?
