The First Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle for Lexus

Self-charging hybrid electric vehicles have been at the forefront of modern Lexus ingenuity, growth and revolution in the automotive industry. This portion of the Lexus hybrid lineup consists of a variety of vehicles that offer all the Lexus elegance and performance you expect, with an efficient system that adds up to superb driving dynamics. These models include the UXh, ESh, RXh, RXh L, LSh and the LCh. Now to further diversify the NXh hybrid lineup is this first-ever plug-in hybrid electric vehicle for Lexus, the NX 450h+. From performance to range to a whisper-quiet operation, this new iteration of the NX is truly a model that can’t be missed.

NX 450h+ Battery & Engine Power

Led forward by the high capacity lithium ion battery found inside the NX 450h+ is the ability to achieve an estimated 58 km of range just on electric power alone. Put in more traditional terms, you can expect the EV power output of this NX to match what a 2.0L engine could. When that electric power is combined with the 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine, a newly created hybrid transaxle, you’ll feel the full force of that power by going from 0-100 km/h in only 6.2 seconds. An incredible mixing and matching of power, the plug-in hybrid is an NX ready for all environments and driving situations.

NX 450h+ Charging Capability

Charging is as simple and efficient as driving the NX is in the first place. The entire system has been engineered to be both a high output and high efficient process when dealing with converting AC power to DC power, ensuring a reduction of power loss and quicker charge times. If you charge the vehicle to its full maximum at 240V and use the 5.5 kW expedited onboard charger, the NX 450h+ Plug-In Hybrid will be fully charged in just 2.5 hours. Charge quickly and efficiently, then get out and enjoy the wonders of Alberta, or just your commute and errand-running.
