Lexus history and evolution
Lexus can trace its origins to 1983 when Toyota set a goal to build a luxury car brand that could compete with the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Following years of research and testing, the brand launched in Canada in 1990 with two sedans, the entry-level Lexus ES and the upscale Lexus LS. Offering a premium driving experience at a slightly more affordable price point than European brands, these early Lexus models were a big success. Today, Lexus is into its seventh generation of ES sedans and fifth generation of the LS series. In 1998, the brand launched the world's first luxury SUV, the Lexus RX, which continues to be one of Canada's best-selling luxury vehicles. In 2004, a hybrid version of the Lexus RX was released, blazing a trail as the world's first hybrid luxury SUV.
