Lexus plans to release wagon variant of the IS

Luxury carmaker Lexus is set to introduce a wagon variant of the new Lexus IS. The company is also considering to make the entire model range as hybrid only vehicles.

The wagon for some time has lost its appeal but it is back in business now at least partially. In the United States, studies show that consumers are starting to value the functionality of the wagon again and are starting to veer away from gas guzzling SUVs. Lexus wants to capitalize on this trend thus the estate IS.

The Japanese carmaker takes note that the C Class of Mercedes-Benz and the 3-Series of the BMW are set to launch their third edition by 2011. The current model of the IS which was rolled out in 2005 has not been made available as a wagon. The move to produce a wagon will help the brand compete in Europe.
