Vehicles with Incentives & Rebates
Toyota set the pace for hybrids, starting with the Prius. Lexus, its luxury division, has matched hybrid powertrains with bigger vehicles, delivering impressive performance along with reasonable economy. For 2008, Lexus offers a hybrid version of its largest sedan. Similar to the extended-length version of the LS 460 sedan, launched for 2007, the LS 600h L promises the performance of a luxury V12 model but with the economy of a "best-in-class" V8. Lexus calls it the world's first V8 all-wheel-drive hybrid, and a three-position switch allows selecting among "power," "hybrid" (normal) or "snow" modes for the powertrain. No other manufacturer offers a hybrid this size -- 202.8 inches long on a 121.7-inch wheelbase -- so the LS 600h L has no true competitors.
