Lexus International President, Lexus NX Featured in Surface Magazine

2015-Lexus-NX-Detroit-MichiganThe Lexus NX will be coming to Detroit Michigan later this year, and it gets spotlighted again along with the president of Lexus International in Surface Magazine.

Surface Magazine is written for media-savvy, fashion-conscious creative individuals interested in keeping up with the latest trends, both nationally and internationally.  It also aims to spotlight today’s visionaries.

So, Surface pretty much nailed its target market by including Tokuo Fukuichi, president of Lexus International, in its annual Power 100 list.

Surface ran a short interview with Fukuichi, along with a photo of the new Lexus NX crossover SUV.

“As people, our bodies defineus, and it’s the same with a car,” Fukuichi told Surface.  “When people look at the style of a car, they immediately understand whether or not they’re looking at a fast car.”

Certainly the NX – even as a crossover SUV – looks fast, as does the brand new Lexus RC and RC F coupe models, which will also be coming to Metro Detroit soon.

“I really think a strong brand needs a story and history with different episodes,” Fukuichi continued.  That is what Lexus has to do from now on: create stories and episodes.”

You can read the entire interview in the current issue of Surface Magazine.  For more information about availability of the 2015 Lexus NX in Detroit Michigan, contact your Detroit Lexus dealer.

Meade Lexus Congratulates Lexus ES 300h on Being Named a Top 10 Best Green Car of 2014 by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com

2014 Lexus ES300h Detroit MichiganMeade Lexus is celebrating the Lexus ES 300h for Earth Day this year as news is announced that it has been named a 2014 Top 10 Best Green Car by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com!

With its 40 mpg* and “famous reliability,” Kbb.com called it “one of the most stress-free cars on the planet.”

An additional congratulations to The entire Prius family – the Prius, Prius c, Prius v and Prius Plug-in – which was ranked No. 3 on the site’s annual green car list. In their description, KBB.com referred to the Prius line as “the royal family of hybrid cars.”

The ES300h Hybrid offers more, even while using less. In addition to providing impeccable refinement, an extended rear valance, and an aerodynamic rear spoiler, it features a better fuel economy rating than most subcompact cars* and has earned the prestigious SULEV emission status.

The list doesn’t just rank gas mileage, though. Each year, Kbb.com editors choose the most efficient vehicles, then they pick 10 standouts featuring a variety of prices and powertrains. Kbb.com also takes into account production methods and recyclability, and editors try to seek vehicles appropriate for various lifestyles.

You can check out the full list on KBB.com.

*2014 ES 300h EPA-estimated 40/39/40 (city/highway/combined) MPG. Actual mileage will vary.
