NAGOYA (Kyodo) Toyota Motor Corp. plans to debut before year’s end the SAI, its own emblem variant of its Lexus HS250h midsize hybrid sedan, offering a bigger alternative to its current best-selling Prius, sources said Friday.

The Lexus HS250h, which sports a non-Toyota emblem, was released in mid-July. The SAI will have the same basic structure but the exterior and interior designs will differ, the sources said.
