Lexus has a long history with hybrid technology and has paved the way for luxury brands to embrace environmental concerns. Now, with 5 hybrid models (soon to be 6) to choose from, Lexus has proven that the environment and luxury is no longer mutually exclusive and there is no need to sacrifice convenience for efficiency since the Lexus Hybrid Drive System gives you all the power that you need- without having to find a plug.
Even slowing down has been very cleverly utilized. The system uses a technique called Regenerative Braking to capture the kinetic energy expelled when you apply the brake – using it to help re-charge the electric battery. You’ll never need to stop and plug your Lexus Hybrid Drive into an electric charging point, the battery cleverly re-charges itself as you drive.”
Lexus Hybrid Line-Up
The Lexus CT 200h
The CT200h is the most fuel-efficient gas powered vehicle in its class with an EPA-estimated 42-MPG combined rating. The CT’s impressive fuel economy coupled with its 5-door versatility easily inspires wanderlust and although it is the entry-level Lexus model, there is nothing “entry-level” about it. The CT200h gives the driver a dynamic driving experience while still giving the occupants a smooth, quiet and Lexus-like ride. Starting in the low $30K range, the CT200h still comes well equipped with every CT having Bluetooth phone connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming, iPod connectivity, two USB outlets, 10-way power driver’s seat, Drive Mode Select, SmartAcess with push button Start/Stop, 60/40-split folding rear seats, 6-speaker premium sound system, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, front foglamps, LED taillamps and heated power side view mirrors with integrated turn signals. The CT200h may put up a seemingly modest 134-horsepower, the torque is stronger than expected thanks to the electric motor and drivers will find plenty of get-up-and-go. If you haven’t yet had a chance to drive the CT200h, we highly recommend doing so! Stop by North Park Lexus at Dominion and let your curiosity drive you.
