Lexus announces on-sale date for 2006 RX 400h
Torrance, California – Lexus announced that the new RX 400h luxury hybrid SUV will go on sale April 15, 2005 in the United States. A Canadian on-sale date has not yet been announced.
In the U.S., Lexus has more than 9,500 confirmed pre-sold orders for the 2006 RX 400h with more than 46,000 consumers registering online for more information about the luxury hybrid vehicle.
“We’ve received significantly more pre-launch consumer interest for the 400h than any vehicle in our entire 15-year history,” said Lexus Group Vice President and General Manager, Denny Clements. “Although the on sale date is confirmed, we are attempting to move the start of production up even earlier in 2005 to build up sufficient inventories to help meet the demand we expect in mid-April,” he added.
