  1. I probably shouldn't be putting this in general discussions, but seeing that I found a Lexus LX570 with bullet proof armour for sale here in Montreal. I wonder who in the city or the province actually thinks someone would be crazy enough to attack them with assault rifles or even grenades? How many people in this province are that wealthy / connected that they are in need of that service? I know we have about almost a dozen or so billionaires, probably under 50 people with net worths between $50 million and $1 billion or is it someone in the mob? 2010 Lexus LX570 specs It is going for $99,000 and has about 15,000 km. If you want to check this thing out, head on over to L.A Leasing.
  2. Lexus Lanes coming to California's Bay AreaPosted Jul 28th 2008 7:19PM by Noah Joseph Filed under: Etc., Government/Legal Officials are hard at work trying to alleviate the notorious traffic congestion in California. Across the state, drivers sit still in traffic while carpool lanes sit empty, underused by public transit and vehicles carrying multiple passengers. The solution for the Bay Area, as the Metropolitan Transportation Commission sees it, is to allow solo motorists to pay for using the carpool lanes. The commission is working up a proposal that would start with a pilot project in 2010 or early 2011 on I-680 S over the Sunol Grade and in both directions on I-580 between Livermore and the I-680 interchange. To implement the project over the entire 12-highway system would require the approval of state lawmakers (who are currently considering such a bill for Sacramento), as well as an investment of an estimated $3.7 billion. That would be recuperated and then some in the long run, generating an estimated $6 billion over the course of 25 years, the balance of which would be reinvested into the transportation network. If implemented, drivers running late and motivated to pay the fee would be able to move into the carpool lane at designated spots and pay with in-car transponders. Although the fees have yet to be determined, they are estimated at between 20-60 cents per mile at the outset of the program, eventually ramping up to as much as $1 per mile by 2030. Similar systems in place in southern California got the nickname "Lexus Lanes" because of the perception that the rich would use them all the time, leaving those with less means stranded in traffic. However officials cite studies that indicate that the system would be used by a wide cross-section of the socio-economic populace.

  3. Combien faut-il payer pour passer à l'hybride? Raymond Gervais - La Presse 09 septembre 2008 | 07 h 32 Depuis que le prix de l'essence a fait un bon spectaculaire, dépassant même le seuil psychologique de 1,50$ le litre durant l'été, de nombreux automobilistes qui n'avaient pas nécessairement la conscience «verte» songent maintenant à se procurer un véhicule à motorisation hybride essence-électricité, question d'économiser. L'achat d'un tel véhicule est bon pour la réduction des gaz à effet de serre. Mais est-ce aussi une bonne affaire? À vous d'en juger. Consultez notre tableau des prix et consommations Un modèle hybride coûte entre 2350$ et 32 400$ de plus que le modèle équivalent à essence. Les automobiles compactes et intermédiaires sont à cet égard plus abordables que les gros VUS et les voitures de luxe. Par exemple, une Civic H coûte 2350$ de plus que le modèle ordinaire; la Malibu H 4200$; la Camry H 3875$ de plus; le Highlander H 6175$, la Saturn Aura 3505$ de plus que le modèle à essence. Côté gros véhicules, un Tahoe H 4 RM coûte 17 900$ de plus, alors qu'un Lexus LS 600h L TI implique 32 400$ de plus que le Lexus LS460 L. 14 modèles offerts Actuellement, 14 modèles de véhicules à motorisation hybride sont offerts sur le marché. Ford propose l'Escape, un véhicule utilitaire sport (VUS), en version à deux roues motrices ou en traction intégrale. General Motors offre cinq modèles, sous les marques Chevrolet, Saturn, Cadillac et GMC. En janvier, le constructeur de Detroit ajoutera trois autres modèles à son offre d'hybrides, deux camionnettes (Silverado et Sierra) ainsi que le VUS de Saturn, le Vue hybride bimode, lequel remplacera le Vue Green Line. Pour le moment, deux automobiles, la Malibu H de Chevrolet et l'Aura Green Line de Saturn, une berline sport, sont offertes en version hybride. Saturn propose également le VUS Vue Green Line et le Cadillac Escalade hybride à traction intégrale. La Malibu et l'Aura sont dotées du moteur générateur d'électricité, tandis que l'Escalade H utilise un système bimode. Depuis l'année modèle 2008, Chevrolet et GMC proposent les VUS grand format Tahoe et Yukon en version hybride bimode. Chez Honda, seule la Civic est présentement offerte en version hybride. Honda proposera un autre modèle hybride au printemps 2009. Nissan propose aussi un seul modèle, l'Altima H. Toyota, le pionnier dans le domaine, propose trois véhicules à motorisation hybride, dont la Prius qui n'existe qu'en version hybride. Les autres sont la Camry H et le VUS Highlander H. Pour sa part, Lexus, la gamme luxueuse de Toyota, propose trois modèles hybrides, deux automobiles, la GS 450h et la LS 600h L, ainsi qu'un VUS, le RX 400h. Bien que tous les constructeurs décrivent leurs véhicules comme étant à motorisation hybride essence-électricité, la technologie employée diffère selon le fabricant ou le modèle de voiture. GM propose deux systèmes hybrides différents sur ses voitures: un moteur générateur électrique pour la Malibu H et un système bimode pour le Tahoe H.
