Lexus launches sweet looking micro site for GS450h - Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007
Lexus has just launched a new site for the GS450h for Russia. It is a flash website and looks pretty killer. Yes it is in Russian but that won’t stop you from clicking around and looking at all the sweet photos and video now will it?

This website will help you to see that there are many other options available to us as consumers to satisfy our transportation needs and desires. We do not have to think that the options at our disposal are all going to be ugly, and/or box like. Actually that is about as far from the truth as you can get. Manufacturer's like General Motors, with their Chevrolet, and Saturn branches. Also Toyota, and Honda, as well as BMW, Lexus, Ford, Chrysler, SSC, Hyundai and many others have jumped into the eco car reality. Some companies by choice to help make our world a better and greener place to live. A place that has less emissions, or even better no emissions from the vehicles that we choose to drive.

By setting strict guidelines as to what we as a society will tolerate for the new emissions levels coming from the vehicles that we produce, purchase and drive. Deciding to not buy and or use vehicles that do not meet our personal requirements is a good place to start. Write to your state representative telling them that you want them to enforce stronger regulations on the newer vehicles that are being produced in our country. The rest of the world and auto makers will conform as well once we set the example of making our world a better place.

"Aerodynamic improvement is a critical step in meeting the range targets necessary for moving the vehicle to a final production decision." Aerodynamic drag accounts for approximately 20 percent of the energy consumed in an average vehicle, directly impacting vehicle fuel efficiency. Aerodynamics development begins with a 1/3-scale model where basic shape and major features are defined. The model includes a highly detailed underbody and engine compartment. Radiator and under hood cooling flow is developed with computational fluid dynamic models. Simultaneously, computation development takes place to determine aerodynamic drag of design alternatives. Development continues with full-scale models, where shape is refined and optimized for low wind noise. The development process concludes with a vehicle prototype validation of the math-based analysis and physical testing.
