TOKYO, JAPAN — Toyota plans to introduce a hybrid version of its luxury sedan Lexus GS in 2006, company executives said on Dec. 22, according to the Associated Press. Takeshi Yoshida, the official in charge of Lexus, said that a hybrid version of Lexus GS will go on sale in 2006 worldwide. Toyota has scored success with the hybrid Prius but doesn't yet have a luxury hybrid. It has said it plans to begin selling hybrid versions of its Highlander and Lexus RX SUVs in the United States next year.
