HYBRID DRIVE

Lexus Hybrid Drive: Intelligently combining a petrol engine with an electric motor.

SINCE 2004, WE’VE PIONEERED FULL HYBRID TECHNOLOGY, BRINGING YOU FUEL EFFICIENCY AND LOW EMISSIONS, COMBINED WITH A LUXURIOUS DRIVING EXPERIENCE

In every Lexus Hybrid, two power sources work together intelligently. Both the battery powered electric motor and the petrol-driven engine can power the car alone. Or they can team up when it counts. This means remarkable fuel economy and low emissions, making savings for you, and the environment. You’ll also enjoy responsive power and a smooth, intuitive driving experience.

Fusing hybrid expertise with cutting-edge design and unsurpassed ‘Takumi’ build quality, we offer the world’s most comprehensive range of luxury hybrid cars. We’ve sold more hybrids than all other premium carmakers, and in 2016 we welcomed our millionth hybrid driver.

Whether you’re seeking compact luxury, a sports model, or an adventurous crossover, there’s a Lexus Hybrid for you.

WHAT IS HYBRID?

Lexus Hybrid Drive combines the power of a petrol engine with the economy of an electric motor, seamlessly switching between the two as you drive. From start up, to acceleration, mid-journey, and deceleration, the optimum choice is made for you.

The result? No compromise. Powerful acceleration and performance are blended with low fuel consumption, and low emissions. Every Lexus Hybrid can also cruise on electric power alone, with zero emissions.

AN EFFORTLESS DRIVING EXPERIENCE

When you drive a Lexus hybrid, you’ll witness two technologies working in harmony. Start your car, cruise at modest speeds, or stop-start in rush hour traffic, and power will be drawn from the electric motor alone. You’ll notice it’s remarkably quiet. But there’s more – your Lexus will also be using no fuel, and producing zero emissions.

As you accelerate, the petrol engine will come into action. A seamless and effortless transition, there’s no need to give a thought to this shift in power. It’s taken care of automatically for you, so you simply enjoy the smooth, refined driving experience.

ALWAYS CHARGED, ALWAYS READY

With Lexus Hybrid there’s no need to charge, and nothing to plug in. Lexus Hybrid Drive is always ready to go. The advanced, compact battery is efficiently charged as you drive.

It’s also charged through ‘regenerative braking’. This smart technique captures energy when you brake, converting it back to electricity to charge the battery.

No unwanted stops. Just smart power in an instant, whenever you need it.

LOWER EMISSIONS

Working in harmony, a petrol engine and electric motor use far less fuel than a conventional vehicle. So Lexus hybrids bring you remarkable fuel economy, and lower emissions.

You’ll only use the petrol engine at higher speeds and, when you’re only using the electric motor, emissions are reduced to zero.

All this makes a Lexus Hybrid Drive the smart choice – for you, and the environment.

HYBRID: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

SOME OF THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT LEXUS FULL HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

A hybrid car has two power sources: a petrol engine and an electric motor. In a ‘full hybrid’ system – like Lexus Hybrid Drive - both can power the car alone, or they can team up together. A hybrid system monitors your driving conditions and seamlessly controls the flow of power. The result is increased efficiency, lower emissions, and optimised performance.

Petrol engines perform best at constant speeds, while electric motors are great for accelerating and for cruising at low speeds. Hybrid cars harness the benefits of both.

In Lexus Hybrid, our Power Control Unit intelligently monitors driving conditions, and chooses which power source should be used in a given moment. It seamlessly switches between the two, or combines both. The optimum choice is made for you, so you can enjoy enhanced power, swift acceleration and dynamic handling.

Teamed with finely tuned aerodynamics and lightweight materials, our hybrid technology also brings you remarkable fuel efficiency and low emissions. And when you’re driving with electric power alone, your car generates zero emissions.

Our hybrid models are as reliable as similar petrol and diesel cars. They’re exceptionally durable, and their electric motors and generators are completely maintenance free. The vehicles also have long lifespans, enhanced by an ultra-efficient V6 or V8 petrol engine.

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 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 for just £59.

With each Hybrid Health check, you'll benefit from an extra 1 year or 10,000 mile (whichever comes sooner) hybrid battery warranty extension. This is available up to the 10th anniversary of the vehicle’s registration, with no limit on total mileage. Terms and Conditions apply so please contact your local Centre for full details.

Lexus Hybrids have the same expertly designed and rigorously tested safety features that you’ll find across our whole range. They’re as safe to drive as a conventional vehicle, giving you peace of mind.

A hybrid car only uses fuel when it really needs to. When you’re travelling at low speeds, your vehicle will seamlessly switch to electric power. This means a hybrid car is efficient, economical and has low emissions, even when you’re accelerating. When you’re driving with electric power alone, your car generates zero emissions. The vehicle's overall performance is optimised too.

Lexus hybrid technology is the original and the best. We were the first to pioneer full hybrids and we’ve been perfecting our approach ever since. Together, over a million drivers like you have travelled millions of miles all over the world, powered by our leading technology.

Unlike other systems, Lexus Hybrid Drive can run purely on electric power at lower speeds. This means zero emissions, and great efficiency. Competitor systems tend to have much smaller electric motors which only work alongside the petrol engine – they can’t power the car alone.

There’s no need. The intelligent Power Control Unit monitors your driving conditions and seamlessly controls the flow of power, to lower emissions and boost performance when you’re on the road. From start up, to acceleration, mid-journey, and deceleration, the optimum choice is made for you.

For zero emissions and maximum efficiency, you can choose to switch to electric power alone for short periods if you like – if the driving conditions are right.

There’s no need to charge your Lexus Hybrid. It’s always ready to go.

As with a conventional vehicle, the battery can go flat if it’s not used for an extended period, like when you go on holiday, for example. But that’s unlikely. And if it does happen, the petrol engine will start your car.

The advanced, compact battery is efficiently charged as you drive. It’s also charged through ‘regenerative braking’. This smart technique captures energy when you brake, converting it to electricity to charge the battery.

It depends on the level of battery charge, the driving conditions, and how heavily your car is loaded.

Your Lexus Hybrid can work on battery power alone at low speeds. Our system intelligently monitors the battery and keeps it charged to a minimum level. If you’re driving long distances or at faster speeds, the petrol engine will start.

Lexus Hybrids have exactly the same capabilities as a conventional car. As with any car, it’s still important to pay attention to the driving conditions, and take extra care when needed. Always avoid driving if there are severe weather warnings.

All Lexus Hybrid models have two power sources: a petrol engine and an electric motor. Both can power the car alone, or they can team up together. The world’s most advanced Power Control Unit intelligently monitors your driving conditions and seamlessly controls the flow of power. The result is increased efficiency, lower emissions, and optimised performance.

Our Hybrids are the top models in their ranges, so you’ll enjoy the highest specifications and the ultimate driving experience. And whether you use it as your personal car or company vehicle, a Lexus Hybrid will save you money, whilst reducing your environmental impact.

No. You’ll never need to charge your Lexus Hybrid. It’s always ready to go.

The advanced, compact battery is efficiently charged as you drive. It’s also charged through ‘regenerative braking’. This smart technique captures energy when you brake, converting it to electricity to charge the battery.

The battery is designed to last for the entire lifetime of your vehicle. It’s also covered by a warranty for five years.

Lexus Hybrid batteries are much larger than regular car batteries, as they need to generate and deliver enough voltage to power the car at low speeds, without any support from the petrol engine. Their production does have a small, additional impact on the environment, but this is more than compensated for by the environmental benefits of driving a hybrid car – remarkable efficiency, and low emissions. Each battery can be recycled, too. Please contact your local Lexus dealership to find out more.
