Lexus’ first electric car debuts at the annual Guangzhou Auto Show in southern China.

At the Tokyo Motor Show in October, the luxury brand Toyota said it would launch the first hybrid car with a plug-in module and a special battery platform for electric vehicles “at the beginning of the next decade.” He also plans to introduce electrified versions for each model by 2025.

    “The new car was specifically designed for the Chinese and European markets to meet the growing demand of local consumers for pure electric vehicles,” Lexus said in a Chinese office.

Lexus maintained double-digit sales growth in China this year. In the first ten months, local shipments grew 22 percent to 160,914 units. With annual sales of 160,468, Lexus became the fifth largest global luxury car brand in China last year after Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac.
