LEXUS HYBRID DRIVE FAQ
WHAT IS HYBRID DRIVE:
Lexus have designed Hybrid Drive as a smart way of saving fuel. It switches automatically and seamlessly between it's petrol engine and the electric motor. It monitors the driving conditions as it's driven and then manages the flow of power from both the motor and engine. The car knows when you want to be efficient, or when you need the performance.
WILL I HAVE TO PLUG IN MY CAR:
Lexus Hybrid Drive means you never have to charge the battery. The car will recharge itself through regenerative braking and deceleration. All you need to do is fill it with petrol now and then, and let the car work for you.
WHY ARE THE LEXUS BATTERIES BETTER THAN OTHERS:
Did you know that we were the first manufacturer to launch full hybrid technology to the luxury car? This was around 10 years ago! Since then, we have refined our hybrid technology in leaps and bounds. Compared to some other competing hybrid systems, our system allows you to run completely on Electric (which creates zero emissions)
HOW LONG WILL THE BATTERY LAST:
The battery is designed to last the life of the vehicle, for peace of mind your battery is warranted for 5 years.
HOW MUCH COULD I SAVE BY GOING HYBRID:
Different driving styles, use of different road and encountering more or less traffic will affect the amount you save, but typically a Lexus hybrid will deliver a marked saving in running costs.
ARE THEY MORE EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN AND REPAIR THAN NON-HYBRIDS:
We offer a free hybrid health check at the point of service every year to check that that your system is running at it's most optimum and smoothest. Because a Lexus has no clutch and thanks to regenerative electric braking system, owning a hybrid means reduced servicing and repair bills over 60,000 miles.
