Luxury car maker Lexus says its luxury sedan will launch in the fourth quarter.
The Japanese carmaker will launch a small hatchback, a sport utility vehicle and an SUV with a sporty interior, the automaker said in a statement.
The sedan will be priced between $35,000 and $39,000 with a four-door option, the company said.
It will also offer an optional sport utility that includes a heated steering wheel and rearview camera.
Lexus will begin shipping the new Lexus ES in the United States in the third quarter, and in Japan in the second quarter, the auto maker said.
Its luxury sedan was the winner of the best-selling midsize sedan category in 2018.
The midsize SUV category is a strong seller for Lexuses, and the company’s other new luxury models include the Mercedes-Benz SLS, a sedan that is expected to hit the market in the first half of 2020.
As for the SUV, it will come with a two-seater with a starting price of $38,100, or $37,100 in the U.S.
A four-seated SUV, the ES, which starts at $37.3 million in the US, or about $33,000 in Japan, is expected in the late 2020s, Lexus said.
Lexus has said it will make a large crossover SUV in the mid-2020s, though that vehicle won’t be the model of the future.
Lexus said the ES is aimed at people who like to drive, and it will be a vehicle that people who want to live and work in the urban environment, rather than in their cars.
The automaker also said it would develop its own plug-in hybrid powertrain for the vehicle.
More:The new Lexuses are designed to offer a range of driving experiences that customers want, Lexuses president, Tom Fields, said in the statement.
They offer a premium, flexible package that can be personalized and customized to meet individual lifestyles.
The Lexus lineup is expected at least through 2021, when the company plans to begin production of the first three models, Fields said.
