Building on the Lexus commitment to alt-fuel technologies, the NX 300h continues to raise the bar in the hybrid category. Pairing a potent 2.5-liter engine with powerful electric motors, the NX Hybrid delivers smooth, instantaneous acceleration and a class-leading 31-MPG combined estimate. All without requiring a charge.
The standard electric all-wheel drive system on the NX Hybrid features an additional electric motor to deliver instantaneous torque to the rear wheels only when it’s required. With no friction loss or added fuel consumption due to heavy mechanical components, the system can automatically help prevent wheelspin when starting off and is so innovative it can also adapt to the angle or condition of the road.
