In 2005, Lexus transformed the industry with the introduction of the RX 400h—the world’s first luxury vehicle to pair an already potent gasoline engine with a powerful electric motor and a self-charging battery. And now, we’re offering the next generation of electrified performance with our first-ever Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, the 2022 NX 450h+ AWD. Limited availability. See your preferred Lexus dealer for details.
Boasting a variety of advantages over traditional powertrains, from instantaneous acceleration to added fuel efficiency—all while surrounding the driver with exceptional craftsmanship—Lexus has been increasing its lead ever since.
With a significantly enhanced warranty that covers every new Lexus Hybrid battery1 for 10 years or 150,000 miles, and multiple models to choose from, this is more than progress. It’s progress in fast‑forward.
With the best combined MPG estimate2 of all non-plug-in luxury SUVs3 and advanced technology throughout, the UX 250h is crafted for the modern pioneer.
by our next generation of hybrid technology, the NX 350h provides
instant response off the line, and has an EPA-estimated 39 MPG combined.4
304 combined horsepower. 0–60 in just 6.0 seconds.5 And an EPA-estimated 37 miles6 of pure EV driving. Our first-ever NX 450h+ Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle launches a new era of electrification and performance. Limited availability. See your preferred Lexus dealer for details.
The RXh, RXh F SPORT and new RXL Hybrid offer 308 total system horsepower,7 striking craftsmanship and, now, seating for up to six.
The ESh offers more to drivers as well as passengers with an impressive 44-MPG combined estimate.8
High performance and fuel efficiency are just two of the advantages offered by a dual-source powertrain.
It’s an advantage you’ll feel in an instant. With a firm press of the accelerator, the powerful electric motors combine with the gas engine to deliver immediate torque and seamless acceleration off the line. When starting from a stop under normal conditions, only the electric drive is used for light acceleration, resulting in a gentle, silent takeoff9 and enhanced efficiency.
Exceptional MPG estimates are yet another benefit of Lexus Hybrid Drive. Unlike conventional vehicles, which are optimized primarily for cruising, Lexus hybrids offer impressive fuel efficiency in all driving conditions. Whether in city traffic or on the highway, the system optimizes output from the electric motor and gasoline engine, allocating power to the drive wheels as well as to an electric generator. As a result, you won’t just enjoy a smoother and quieter ride, you’ll enjoy it over many more miles on a single tank of gas.
Welcome to power to the power of two. During initial takeoff from a stop, the high-output battery alone provides power to the electric drive. As speed increases, the potent gas engine is engaged. And, when extra acceleration is desired, power output from both sources is optimized to deliver an even greater boost. Working in tandem with the Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, the result is powerful acceleration without the jarring shift points experienced in a conventional vehicle.
Unlike traditional gasoline engines, which must idle and consume fuel even at a standstill, a Lexus Hybrid switches off its gas engine when decelerating and at a stop, saving fuel and minimizing emissions. The electric motor remains ready and available for immediate takeoff.
Tap into visionary power and efficiency with the debut of the first Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) from Lexus, the 2022 NX 450h+ AWD3. It’s the most powerful and fastest NX ever, boasting an estimated 0-to-60 time of six seconds.10
With an all-electric EPA-estimated range rating of 37 miles,11 this exhilarating PHEV was designed to exceed imagination as it creates innovative ways to elevate the driving experience. It’s the next era of hybrid performance. Limited availability. See your preferred Lexus dealer for details.
From an all-electric concept that puts the “Lexus Electrified” vision and the next generation of Lexus into sharp focus, to the first-ever Lexus fuel cell concept that pushes the boundaries of imagination, Lexus elevates the future of mobility to exhilarating new heights.
