    35K is too much for me but I'm sure this car will find many buyers at thisprice point. I myself would buy a mid-priced Camry hybrid - it's my favorite out of the whole bunch (Fusion is too small, too scarce, too expensive, and too MPG-overrated.)

    The Pius has become too much of a red herring for me, driven by too many pompous "I'm saving the planet" faux-environmentalists. I might be interested in this sedan, though don't care about all the electronic gizmos. Just looking for a sedan that is a hybrid, rather than a Hybrid Sedan.

    I am in this boat - I am looking to buy the HS or Prius in the Spring of 2010. I think $35K would be ok for the base price, but if adding all the cool tech options (which I want) puts it over $42K I'm out! I'll go for the loaded Prius - what really turns me off the Prius is the funky speedo placement. Also, where I live, the Lexus dealer is much more accessible. What I wish I could have is a hybrid version of the Lincoln MKZ (Ford Fusion twin).

    I am looking for a hybrid car for a couple of years. Besides the cheap looking interior, I really like the Prius. I am very excited about the H250h has a better interior also a hybrid car made from Toyota. I wish HS250h price staring at $30k. Because with the economy saturation, if Lexus can lower the HS 250h price, many people will concern to have one.

    $35k seems oddly low for a Lexus. I'm not sure what your logic was for the $35k price point. A moderately equipped 250IS is around $35k (and goes up from there). Hybrids usually command a significant premium...so something closer to $40k seems more realistic. (Maybe Lexus will advertise around the $35k base...but as we all know in the luxury car game the actual price out the door will be significantly higher.)

    The H250h is the only Lexus rated for regular gas.
