Sure, there's the Lexus ES300h that gets 45 MPG and has 215 HP. Looks more ridiculous to me than a Prius due to the grill, but it isn't way outside the price range of a Prius either.



Or if you want crazy power, there's the LC500h, 354 HP with a 4.7 0-60. Might as well buy a Tesla though for the price tag. Like all Lexus vehicles of the last decade, it too sports a grill that exudes insecurity and ineptitude.
