Lexus’ hybrids stepping stones to electrified mobility

The road to an electrified future in the Philippines is already being paved by the current crop of hybrid models, led by Lexus.

The Lexus LS flagship, IS Sport sedan, RX SUV, and NX Crossover, for instance, feature hybrid technologies which are a result of genuine and ongoing concern for the harmful effects vehicle emissions can have on the environment, while simultaneously enhancing personal mobility.

The LS 500h flagship model is equipped with the new Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System, a technology that transforms the performance and driver appeal of hybrids, providing improved responsiveness and more rewarding, linear acceleration, particularly when moving off from stationary.

The new IS 300h sport sedan was born and bred at the Shimoyama Technical Center Test Track—where the toughest and most challenging roads in the world have been recreated. The outcome is an IS lineup that is agile and provocative. The IS 300h—while boasting hybrid technology—thoroughly espouses Lexus’s DNA.

The RX 450h makes a bold and completely new statement in this segment while building on and staying true to the pioneering values of previous hybrid RX generations, while the NX 300h also features the Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System bringing a new level of technology and a heightened driving experience to a Lexus crossover.

The recently launched Lexus RZ marks the transition of Lexus into a BEV-centered brand and embodies the unique Lexus vehicle design and driving experience brought on by advanced electrification technology.

The Lexus RZ is a showcase of advanced driver technologies that will eventually find its way to all Lexus models in the future. The RZ has been developed with the aim of creating a uniquely Lexus BEV that feels secure to ride in, is pleasing to the touch, and is exhilarating to drive. It won’t be long until its technology becomes available to Filipino customers.

TessDrive hopes this current lineup of Lexus hybrid automobiles that are being marketed as environment-friendly will be equipped with the Lexus NuLuxe interior, a high-quality synthetic leather material that does not use animal skin.

Buyers of Lexus hybrids who opt for NuLuxe or any other type of faux leather in their cars can help contribute to cruelty-free, guilt-free motoring. This choice employs latest technologies to do away with outdated, cruel methods of torturing and killing innocent creatures.

Lexus NuLuxe is man-made leather upholstery that has the look and feel of leather without the added cost and care. An eco-friendly alternative to leather, Lexus NuLuxe employs an innovative manufacturing process that produces no volatile organic compounds and reduces carbon emissions by as much as 65% compared to genuine leather.
