Lexus Hybrid Drive
Fuel for the future
Hydrogen, solar, electric, biofuel, diesel and gasoline. There are many potential fuel sources available, but Lexus has always maintained that the real fuel of the future will be ideas that allow the viable combination of multiple power sources.
Lexus Hybrid Drive opens the doors for new levels of efficiency with the flexible combination of two different power sources — most commonly an electric motor and a petrol engine.
A core Lexus technology
The concept of Lexus Hybrid Drive has been a core technology for many years, beginning with the launch of the RX 400h in 2004. As the world’s first luxury hybrid SUV, the vehicle changed the way consumers thought about environmentally friendly cars. With the LC 500h’s Multi-stage Hybrid System, we pushed the boundaries of technology once again, combining hybrid efficiency with the power of a high-performance petrol engine.
