Lexus Hybrid Range
As a manufacturer, Lexus has been one of the most prolific in terms the launch and sale of hybrid vehicles in South Africa. By offering everything from a smaller hatchback with a hybrid powertrain to a premium SUV and even a compact crossover model all that utilise an internal combustion engine and a battery pack, it would appear that Lexus are the go-to-guys for hybrids in South Africa.
The more premium hybrid in the range is the sublime RX 450h SE which provides performance, frugality and off-road ability in equal measure. It features a sonorous 3.5-litre V6 in combination with an electric motor for a combined output of 230kW and a claimed fuel consumption of 7.7 litres/100km.
