PLUG-IN HYBRID

FEEL MORE RESPONSIBLE 

WHAT IS A PLUG-HYBRID?

With a Lexus Plug-in Hybrid there are two power sources: an ultra-smooth petrol engine and a large lithium-ion battery powering the electric motor/generator. Fully charged, a Lexus Plug-in Hybrid can drive in EV mode for more than 64 km and when the battery is depleted, switches to highly-efficient Hybrid mode.

ELECTRIC MODE

The EV default setting maximizes battery use, allowing you to travel distances of more than 64 km using only electric power. Powered by an advanced 18.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, you can enjoy near-silent and zero emissions driving up to 135 km/h.

AUTO EV/HYBRID MODE

In Auto EV/Hybrid mode, and depending on how hard you depress the accelerator, the powerful petrol engine will spring to life and deliver rapid linear acceleration just when you need it, letting you reach 100 km/h in just over 6 seconds.

POWER CONTROL UNIT

The highly advanced Power Control Unit is 20% more powerful yet 10% lighter than the previous generation. It intelligently monitors your driving conditions and controls the flow of power. The result is increased efficiency, lower emissions and optimised performance.

CONVENIENT CHARGING

Plug-in Hybrids charge their lithium-ion battery using a cable attached to the car from a power source. Although the new Lexus NX 450h+ will plug into a normal home socket, a Lexus Wallbox is recommended to provide faster charging.

HOME SOCKET

It is simple and convenient to plug the new Lexus NX 450h+ into a normal socket at home. The new Lexus NX 450h+ is fitted with a highly-efficient 3.3kW charging system.

LEXUS WALLBOX

We recommend a Lexus Wallbox for optimum charging. One of the most compact of its kind, the 22 kW Entry Wallbox is the perfect indoor and outdoor solution for efficient charging of EVs or your NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid that will be charged at 6.6 kW through its onboard charger. For more control, the 22 kW Connected Wallbox offers a smart charging solution featuring LAN, WiFi and optional LTE.

POWER CONTROL UNIT

For a seamless electrified experience, you can monitor the charge level and range of your NX 450h+ remotely, on your mobile. Lexus Link also locates charging stations across Europe, allowing you to check availability, charging speed and price and offers services like: Remote control and scheduling, Access to extensive European network of public charging facilities and Charging station availability, charging speeds and price per kWh.

PIONEERS IN ELECTRIFIED

In order to curb greenhouse gases, and to reach the goal of becoming zero emissions company by 2050, Lexus believes that effective vehicle electrification is essential. Since the launch of the RX 400h in 2005, the world’s first electrified luxury car, Lexus has taken the initiative in developing and promoting the widespread use of eco-friendly Self-charging Hybrids.

As well as reducing the emissions of cars, by 2050 the plan is to achieve zero CO2 emissions from all Lexus manufacturing plants and minimise their water usage. 

PROTECTING THE PLANET

Many large towns and cities across the EU have introduced Low Emissions Zones as part of the EU’s mission to become climate neutral. 

High emissions vehicles are either prevented from entering the area or charged to do so. Low emissions vehicles like the Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid may enter for free. 

REDUCING COSTS

Self-Charging Hybrid vehicles are typically more effective to buy, own and run than an equivalent diesel model.

Significant maintenance savings can be made in the long-term as the hybrid system does not have a clutch, timing belt, starter motor, alternator etc.

Also, replacement parts costs are significantly reduced as Lexus hybrids produce less wear and tear of brake pads and tyres, resulting in further savings.

An annual Hybrid Health Check is the best way to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Lexus Hybrid. The Hybrid Health Check is free of charge, as part of the any Lexus service. But if you aren’t due a service for a while, you can maintain your peace of mind with a stand-alone Hybrid Health Check.
