PLUG-IN HYBRID SYSTEM
The plug-in hybrid system used in the PHEV version of the NX is equipped with a thermally-efficient 2.5-liter inline-four engine, a plug-in hybrid system used in the PHEV version of the NX is equipped with a thermally-efficient 2.5-liter inline-four engine, a high-capacity, high-output lithium-ion battery, and front and rear motors. The lithium-ion battery has an impressive power output of 18.1 kilowatt-hours (kWh), providing a class-leading EV range and power for daily driving.
The driver can alternate at will among four driving modes (EV mode, AUTO EV/HV mode, HV mode, and Self-charge mode) at the touch of a switch. In HV mode, the engine and motor work together to achieve high acceleration performance.

A highly efficient 2.5-liter inline-4 engine and Direct Shift-eight-speed AT. The AWD system has a constantly variable front/rear driving force distribution ranging from 100:0 to 50:50. With the same unique control technology and optimized final gear ratio as the 2.4L engine. Providing sufficient driving force and a pleasant driving experience with an optimal and rhythmic shift schedule depending on the situation.

The cockpit design is based on the Tazuna Concep. A new cockpit that further evolves Lexus’ human-centered philosophy that is the foundation of all vehicle development. This interior concept was first introduced in the LF-30 Electrified concept car in 2019. Also, the word tazuna derived from the “reins” used to control horses.

The ratio of the driver and passenger floor designed to create the optimal space. The meter and center display area contribute to driver comfort by ensuring a wide field of vision and tightening the driver’s knee space. Also, the wide passenger area, including the top of the console, provides passengers with ample space.
The layout of the information system components leading from the heads-up display to the gauges and from the heads-up display to the center display allows for smoother, less distracting eye movement while driving. In addition, the start button, shift lever, and drive mode select switch are placed around the steering wheel where they can be handled more naturally. So the driver can operate them smoothly without losing his or her driving posture.
