HOW IT WORKS
Lexus Hybrid Drive vehicles have a petrol engine, an electric motor and the intelligent technology to select the best combination of petrol and electric power, based on your driving needs.
During initial take-off, the high-output electric motor and battery provide all the power you need.3
As you gradually accelerate and require more power, the petrol engine is automatically engaged.
At cruising speeds and when you brake, Lexus Hybrid Drive redirects excess power to help recharge the hybrid battery.
At a complete stop, the petrol engine switches off³, saving fuel and reducing CO₂ emissions.
