Lexus Philippines treated us to the launch of the refreshed IS back in November. Now, it is expanding the roster further with the introduction of a second hybrid variant: the IS300h.

The new IS300h is priced at P2,978,000, and slots under the two existing variants, the IS F Sport (P3,808,000) and the IS300h Premier (P3,328,000).

As mentioned, the new IS300h packs a hybrid powertrain. This is the same one in the IS300h Premier: a 2.5-liter in-line-four engine paired with an electric motor. It comes mated to Lexus’ E-CVT intelligent transmission.

The entire setup generates 220hp and 221Nm of torque, and allows the use of a fully electric drive mode at slow speeds. Lexus says the IS300h can do 0-100kph sprints in 8.7sec. Fuel consumption, meanwhile, is around 19km/L.
