Lexus is a renowned Japanese company and it is a division of Toyota Motor Corporation, which produces luxury vehicles and sell them all over the world. The company was founded a long time ago by Eiji Toyoda and it was introduced in the United States of America in 1989. With its great popularity among people from all parts of the world, it becomes highest selling Japanese automobile company now. The Headquarter of Lexus is situated in Nagoya in Japan, though it has operational centers in California. Torrance, Belgium and many other places. Lexus expanded their business in the Philippines in 2009.
The history of Lexus or, Toyoda starts with its F1 project in which the chairman Eiji Toyoda wanted to build a best luxurious car of that time. The code name of this very secret project was ‘Flagship One’. The product of that F1 project was named Lexus LS 400 which added another product line in Toyoda’s huge number of products. After that, Toyota built many premium models which were highly appreciated by the customers. They produced V8 models Toyota century, Toyota Supra, Toyota Cressida etc. F1 manufacturers and designers then tried to launch their upgraded models all over the world.
Lexus in Philippines:
In 1989 Lexus got the permission to launch their models in the USA and up to 2005 they did a fantastic job and sold over 2 million vehicles in the USA in 2004. Up to this Lexus is under Toyota. In 2005, finally it got complete separation form Toyota as they had training, manufacturing centers, engineers, designers to work without the help of its parent company. This help Lexus to launch their models globally and catch the market of luxury vehicles. So, they had designed many models for international launching. In Europe the company faced many problems to create their brand recognition. To catch the market and compete with other rivals, they brought hybrid & turbo diesel Powertrains. In Jan 2009, Lexus Manila first opened their showroom at Fort Bonifacio in Philippines. The 10,500 square meter manufacturing center is now one of the best luxury vehicle centers in the Philippines. Lexus launched their five models at the beginning and promised to bring more models with upgradation and redesign.
There were 1,400 engineers, 60 designers, 2300 technicians and many support workers in the F1 project, which produced Lexus LS 400 which had no similarities with earlier Toyota models. The Powertrain consists of a V8 4-liter engine with rear wheel drive. The car is highly praised because of its performance, fuel efficiency, elegant interior, aerodynamics and unique design with quietness. Some critics had said that the driver of this car was not comfortable. It was released at a very reasonable price of $38,000, whereas its competitors like Mercedes Benz had a very high price, $63,000. This was the reason it got a high response from the customers and won many motor awards. BMW and Mercedes faced a huge drop in their sales that year. Then Lexus launched ES 250 model and in 1990 these they sold over 63000 cars of these two models in the United States. SC 400 was their first coupe, which was released in 1991 with V8 4 liter engine like LS 400. Since then they have launched many models in ES, LS, SC and GS lineup.
