UAE, November 23, 2018

Lexus RX 450h recently won the ‘Best Premium Midsize SUV of the Year Award’ at the fourth edition of the ArabWheels Awards 2018.

Al-Futtaim Lexus, a leader in green luxury mobility since 2010, is the largest line-up of hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) in the UAE.

ArabWheels Awards is an annual event presented by ArabWheels’ media platforms – magazine, website, apps, web TV, and e-news to recognise and acknowledge the latest and greatest of the automotive world

Lexus RX450h has always driven the growth in Lexus HEV sales, as it accounts for approximately 50 per cent of the brand’s HEV sales in the UAE, said a statement from the company.

Mohammed Maktari, managing director of Al-Futtaim Lexus, said: “We are very proud to receive this award and we thank the ArabWheels team for their dedicated efforts reviewing all shortlisted vehicles across all categories.”

“Winning the award demonstrates all stakeholders’ efforts towards highlighting the importance of sustainable mobility,” he said.

“RX450h is one of our best-selling Hybrid Electric Vehicles in the UAE and has been playing an active role in reducing our carbon footprint in the country,” he added.

HEV is the most practical environmentally-friendly mobility solution, and comes with the advantage of imposing no infrastructure changes and no shifts in the driver’s behaviour while offering uncompromised driving range and performance.

As of today, Lexus sells nine full hybrid electric models globally, making it the only premium brand with such a large HEV lineup.

In the UAE, Al-Futtaim Lexus offers six luxury HEV choices including Lexus LS 500h, LC 500h, GS 450h, RX 450h, CT 200h and the recently introduced ES300h, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
