Lexus hybrid sales exceed half-million mark

Worldwide sales of Lexus hybrids have surpassed the 500k point.

The brand has shifted more than 506,000 hybrids since the RX400h - the world's first production full hybrid luxury SUV - went on sale in 2005.

The UK accounts for 6.4 per cent of all Lexus hybrids sold globally (32,704 units) and between January and August 2012, led European sales for the CT, GS and RX models.
