    Segment transcript:

    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA. Lexus IS 500 Product Manager Richard Hollingsworth says the Lexus IS 500 will be in dealerships this fall around September and he hints at the pricing. “I will say that it will be competitively priced for the segment it’s going to compete against…of course, above the 350 models, but at the same time making sure it’s attainable as well. So as we get closer to the launching of the vehicle come September timing is when we should be able to give you more news and more information about it and everything else and we like I said, are very excited. Like I said the dealers and the enthusiasts will definitely be excited, we are, I want to say almost 100% very excited that they’ll be excited with the same pricing that we’re about to announce for it for sure.” The Lexus IS 500 F Sport features a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with 472-horsepower.

    F-150 Lightning Pro

    Ford General Manager Commercial Marketing Raj Sarkar talks about charging the F-150 Lightning PRO. Sarkar: “From the depot charging standpoint if they’re going to set up that way we will work with them and help guide them in terms of what they need to put in place. And actually the same applies for companies who have their employees taking the trucks home and charging at home, they have that 48 amp charger or 80 amp charger and have it installed at home. And importantly we offer e-Telematics. So now in a full range of Telematics solutions to really support this whole set up for an employee charging at home there’s seamless reimbursement for their electricity that they are using at home and the fleet they don’t have to turn in any receipts or anything like that it’s all done automatically through the Telematics system. And then the third space is public charging and we have the largest public charging network in the U.S., so 63,000 charging points and that is also set up through telematics to be completely seamless.”For more automotive news visit www.carprousa.com.
