    SMOOTHER START

    Just get up and go. From the moment you take to the driver’s seat, the self-charging battery will be ready, without the need to plug in or charge overnight.

    City driving is where fully electric EV mode comes into its own, with zero emissions and no petrol typically used at lower speeds*. With nimble handling at the busiest junctions, it’s perfectly adapted to urban life.

    *For the moments when you require an extra burst of power at low speeds, the petrol engine provides support.

  • COMBINED POWER
    Drive with a constantly adapting combination of petrol and electric power.

    COMBINED POWER

    With two sources of energy, you have both power and efficiency in a Lexus Hybrid.

    Seamlessly combining petrol and electric power, the hybrid system monitors driving conditions to co-ordinate both power sources when required, whether accelerating, in traffic or cruising along faster roads.

  • SMARTER BRAKING
    The regenerative braking system recovers energy whenever you slow down.

    SMARTER BRAKING

    In a Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid, energy is carefully conserved.

    Every moment you’re driving, your battery is charging. Not just on the move, but when you stop or slow down, our regenerative braking system recovers even more energy.
