Lexus has unveiled their new Lexus NX plug-in hybrid SUV and the car comes with a new design and a range of new features.
The Lexus NX will be available with a range of power options including the NX 350h and the NX450h+, more details below.
Lexus has drawn on more than 15 years of hybrid technology expertise to produce its first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), the new NX 450h+. The halo electrified model in the new NX range, it features a four-cylinder 2.5-litre hybrid engine and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with 18.1 kWh, the highest capacity in its class. An additional rear electric motor enables full-time all-wheel drive. The plug-in system is expected to give 0-100 km/h acceleration in a little over six seconds. By contrast, estimated CO2 emissions (WLTP combined cycle) of less than 40g/km and fuel economy of less than 3 l/100 km are set to be the best in the NX’s class.
The battery’s size and capacity and Lexus’ electrified efficiency know-how combine to deliver a class-leading EV driving range of 63 km and enable all-electric driving at speeds up to 135 km/h.
