Considering the Prius gets 68 MPG average rated in the UK, I doubt the HS250 will have a problem getting close to that as it is suppose to be the Lexus Prius and each new Prius gets larger and more fuel efficient

68 british mpg probably not american.

but yeah, it should get the same mpg as a prius, meaning around 50.

LExus better be working on a plug in hybrid version for the next GS. If not i'll have to buy the Fisker Karma, though I dont trust their reliability and finding 22 inch winter tires will be tough

i dont think it will be aroun the prius. if anything, it will be around the camry. since it will probably be a larger vehicle and less hatch back-ish. power will probably be either high hundreds or low 200s. im going to estimate a good 35/37.

IMHO the worst decision on the Fisker Karma is the use of a GM engine. I will take the car if they put a Toyota/Lexus engine under the hood.

The wheels are so tiny
looks like a Prius with an add-on trunk
Does this thing share a platform with the Prius?

looks like a squashed IS......... with ugly doors. There's no point camoflaging the doors, because they're flat slabs anyway.

this one is gonna look cartoonish, just like the RX.
