Autocar has revealed the long-lived RX has been pared down to just one model: the RX 450h. Suitably, a Lexus source was quoted as saying the move to offer just the hybrid RX was "a logical move for the company." Lexus has also cut their GS and LS lines to just their hybrid models as well, essentially telling the British to only come by when they're ready for a hybrid, or just want an IS.

The latest RX 450h starts at 41,600 GBP, or a little over $67,500 according to today's exchange rates.

Considering the UK's socialistic, greenie government of late, this does make some sense. I would say probably in about 10 years, almost all cars will by a hybrid of one sort or another, whether it's auto stop-start or "full" hybrids.
