The FWD-only version of the Lexus gas/electric hybrid was announced today, along with new pricing for the existing AWD version, launched earlier this year.

The FWD RX400h has a combined system output of 268 hp, a 0-60 time of 7.5 seconds and a combined EPA fuel-economy rating of 30 mpg (33 city/28 highway). Both AWD and FWD versions carry EPA Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle certification.

The FWD version starts at an MSRP of $44,060. The AWD base version is now offered without the previously standard nav system with backup camera, for a reduced MSRP of $46,060.

Both cars feature an eight-year/100,000-mile battery and hybrid system warranty.
