Lexus UK boss Steve Settle says the L-word is working up a dedicated hybrid that'll be bigger than a sack of flour and smaller than the St. Ignace Mystery Spot. That'll put it squarely in range of what's known in Europe as the D-Segment, which had a minor dance hit in 1985 with "Girl, Stop Your incessant Proffering of Sexual Congress to My Homies." The car is reportedly planned for 2010, and will have more interior and trunk space than the IS, but less than the GS. It'll also likely be powered by the next generation of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive system. Peace.
