What are some important things to know before buying a Lexus Hybrid?
Hybrids have more than 1 engine. A gasoline engine powers the vehicle at higher speeds (above 25mph) and turns the generator to charge the hybrid battery pack and one electric motor to power the vehicle at lower speeds (below 25 mph). Some all-wheel-drive hybrids have a 2nd electric motor to provide power to rear wheels as needed (RX450h).
What models are available as hybrids at Lexus?
There are several models to choose from: CT200h, ES300h, RX450h, GS450h, LS600hL, and HS250h (discontinued in 2012).
What are some features that Lexus hybrids have that other hybrids do not?
One of the major features is the Lexus Experience. The ride comfort that customers feel in a Lexus gas model is the same ride comfort in a Lexus hybrid model. Lexus also incorporates distinctive hybrid “badging” like different wood trim available only on hybrid models and Blue accents on the exterior Lexus emblem.
