Why Hybrid?

1. SEAMLESS PERFORMANCE

The advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive intelligently utilises the petrol engine and electric motor as required, seamlessly engaging one, both or neither for a driving experience that offers exceptional power and breath-taking acceleration.

2. BETTER FUEL ECONOMY

With two power sources to call on, drain on the petrol engine is reduced or the engine is given an extra energy boost from the electric motor and hybrid battery, requiring less fuel to power the vehicle.

3. QUIETER ENGINE

At start up, the petrol engine waits silently, ready to come to life when required. When travelling in slow moving traffic, only the electric motor will be active for whisper quiet performance.

4. LOWER EMISSIONS

During braking, coasting and when stopped at traffic lights, the petrol engine is switched off immediately*, which in turn stops the creation of harmful NOx and CO2 emissions.
