Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 15, 2017:   Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Lexus in the UAE, has announced a 225% increase in its hybrid sales for the first half of this year, compared to the same period in 2016, bolstering the company's support for the UAE Vision 2021.

The upsurge in hybrid sales was mainly driven by the Lexus RX h, which accounted for approximately 25% of all RX sales, followed by CT h, GS h and LS h. The recently launched LC 500h Coupe is the latest addition to the growing Lexus hybrid line-up, and introduces the world's first multi-stage hybrid system in an emotionally captivating, high-performance model.

Christopher Buxton, Managing Director of Lexus at Al-Futtaim Motors, commented: “We take pride in leading the green luxury mobility through the largest line-up of hybrid offer in the UAE, and we are grateful to our customers who have supported us in our journey towards a more sustainable future. The stellar growth in our hybrid sales is concrete evidence that UAE motorists have become more sensitive towards ever-growing environmental issues. We have cemented our commitment to making sustainable mobility widely available by price matching our hybrid models with their petrol equivalent, the RX and more recently LC 500 are just two examples.”

Globally, Lexus pioneered hybrid technology in 2005 with the launch of RX 400h, the first full hybrid premium SUV. Gradually, the brand expanded its hybrid offering by launching the first full premium hybrid sedan, GS 450h, in 2006 and in 2007 the most powerful full hybrid sedan, LS 600h, was introduced. 2011 witnessed the launch of the first full hybrid premium compact, CT 200h, and in 2014 the first premium mid-size crossover, NX 300h was sold. 2015 saw the introduction of the first full premium hybrid sports coupe, RC 300h. In 2017 the first multi-stage hybrid vehicle was introduced with the launch of the LC 500h
Today, globally, Lexus sells 10 full hybrid models and is the premium brand with the largest full hybrid line-up.

Hybrid technology is the most environmentally practical mobility solution contributing to air quality improvement, as it requires no infrastructure changes, offers no compromise on the driving range and does not impose any change on the driver's behavior.

In the UAE, Al-Futtaim Motors offers 5 luxury hybrid vehicles including Lexus LC 500h, LS 600h, GS 450h, RX 450h and CT 200h
