How the Self-Charging Hybrid Electric System Works

Technology & Performance

Self-Charging Hybrid Electrics combine the best of both worlds, with a battery and electric motors, using these systems to utilize the best combo based on your driving needs at the moment. Your battery will be recharged when you drive and brake, so no plugin is needed. Thus, that means fewer stops at the pumps with this dual system. Don’t confuse this for skimping out on power, as our hybrid electric vehicles deliver performance and efficiency in equal measure, with unmatched driving dynamics.

Step-By-Step Hybrid Driving Experience

From Stop:

Your vehicle is always ready to go, you don’t have to plug in to recharge, just press the power button and be on your way.

Once you accelerate, you’re going to need a bit more power, that’s where the gas engine comes in. Then the Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission will regulate power from both sources for a seamless response from gas and electric.

The Electronic Control Unit delivers power to the drive wheels and electric generator while cruising. Any energy that isn’t needed will instead be used to recharge the battery.

Regenerative Braking:

As soon as you take your foot off the gas, or press down on the brake pedal the regenerative system goes to work recovering the kinetic energy lost. It then converts this into electricity to charge the battery.

When you stop the gas engine may stop as well, to help save on fuel. If you happen to be running low on hybrid battery power, the gas engine will kick in to make sure the battery has its required energy. Hit the accelerator to start the cycle all over again.

Reduces GHG Emissions:

Our Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid Electric vehicles are upwards of 70% cleaner than gas or diesel engines. Not only are they more environmentally conscious, but they don’t sacrifice when it comes to performance or handling either.

Regenerative Braking:

There are few things worse than wasted material, and these Hybrid Electric vehicles work to make use of their extra energy. This discarded energy turns into driving energy, so you can get the most out of your fuel and help the environment at the same time.

Electric Mode Only:

In certain situations you can drive your Lexus using only its electric mode. That means even further improved efficiency and outputting fewer emissions while in the city.

Battery Recycling:

Reduce, reuse, recycle is an old adage, but never more prescient today, and something that the Lexus brand lives by. From batteries to motor magnets to rare earth metals, recycling is an important part of Lexus hybrid electric tech.

Improved Fuel Efficiency:

The beauty of having both a gas engine and electric motor is the ability to adapt to your driving surroundings and match the power needed, so you can extend your time between filling up and cut down on emissions produced.
