2010 LEXUS HYBRID: Lexus brings the promise of sustainable luxury to the forefront of the auto industry with the new 2010 HS 250h. It is expected to achieve an EPA-estimated 35 mpg city and 34 mpg on the highway. Drivers can use the eco-mode in conjunction with a new hybrid system monitor plus eco-driving indicator to improve on these numbers in certain conditions. The expected fuel efficiency is more than 20 percent better than the most fuel-efficient model currently in the Lexus lineup. (Source: Lexus)

EV FOR NISSAN: Nissan’s electric vehicle will be similar in size to the new Cube and will have a driving range of 100 miles on a charge, a distance that is sufficient for the daily driving needs of 98 percent of Americans, according to the company. Nissan will begin offering the new model, not yet named, in 10 to 15 markets nationwide in 2010, gradually expanding to full availability in 2012, as more public charging stations are built to permit recharging while away from home.
