No small percentage of Lexus buyers will gladly pay the hybrid premium for better-performing luxury cars. In the UK, almost a third (28 percent) of new Lexus models sold are hybrid versions, according to Just-Auto (subs req'd)

Overall, Lexus sold 3,381 vehicles in the UK in September, and about 1,000 of those were hybrids.
