UX - 250h PLUS
Compact Luxury SUV
Unlike electric cars or plug-in hybrids, you’ll never have to connect a Lexus hybrid electric vehicle to a power socket or charge overnight — they’re self-charging and always ready to go.
Throughout your journey, your battery is charging. When you’re on the move, slowing down, or braking, our intelligent system constantly recovers energy for later use.
SMOOTH AND SILENT
When our hybrid runs exclusively in full electric EV mode, you can expect quiet comfort in a refreshingly peaceful drive.
GOOD FOR THE EARTH, AND YOUR WALLET
Our hybrid system reduces harmful gas emissions to levels that are significantly lower than many international standards. With reduced emissions and superior fuel efficiency, you’ll save on fuel costs and it’s better for the earth too.
STARTING FROM STOP
When starting from a stop under normal conditions, only the electric drive is used for light acceleration, resulting in a gentle, silent take-off and enhanced efficiency.
Welcome to the power of two. The high-output battery alone provides power to the electric drive. As speed increases, the potent petrol engine is engaged. And, when extra acceleration is needed, power output from both sources is optimized to deliver an even greater boost.
Working in tandem with the electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, the result is smooth powerful acceleration.
With two sources of energy, you have both power and efficiency in a Lexus Hybrid. Seamlessly combining petrol and electric power, the Hybrid system monitors driving conditions to intelligently co-ordinate both power sources when required, whether accelerating, in traffic or cruising along faster roads. Furthermore, as you travel, any excess energy is routed to the battery for charging.
Efficiency and power are just two benefits of the Hybrid’s electric engine. Another is that every moment you’re driving, your battery is charging. Not just on the move, but when you stop or slow down, our regenerative braking system recovers even more energy.
AT A STOP
The Lexus Hybrid switches to electric power when stationary, saving fuel and minimizing emissions.
