It may be greener on the royal wedding of the year, as Lexus Europe announced on Thursday that he had a big blow: His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, will use the hybrid Lexus LS 600h L for their wedding in July, marking the first time a member of European royalty chose a hybrid for a royal wedding.
Prince Albert will marry Charlene Wittstock on July 2. He is an advocate of high levels of green vehicles and led Monaco to develop a mobility plan with less environmental impact.
Lexus issued a press release sentimental, saying the prince confirmed ‘commitment to more environmentally friendly, “with the choice of Lexus hybrid. The flagship Lexus is not greener on the green, but as the sedan of just 5360 returns 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.
