All of the Lexus SUVs you can get in the UK are available with hybrid power. Only one of them, the NX, is available with a non-hybrid petrol engine.
The UX 250h, NX 300h, NX 350h and RX 450h have ‘full’-hybrid power combining a petrol engine with an electric motor and a battery big enough to give a couple of miles of zero-emissions, electric-only driving. These models can give you similar fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions as an equivalent diesel car, so they’re quite cost-effective.
The latest version of the NX, sold new from early 2022, is available as a plug-in hybrid model called the NX 450h+. It has a petrol engine and a more powerful electric motor, plus a bigger battery, to give a range of up to 40 miles using purely electric power. There will also be a plug-in hybrid version of the next RX, which goes on sale in late 2022.
If you want to go for a fully electric Lexus SUV, there’s the UX 300e, which can give you a range of up to 196 miles on a full battery, according to official figures. If you can wait until later in 2022, you’ll be able to get the all-new RZ. It’s the first purpose-built electric car from Lexus and is expected to have a range of up to 250 miles when fully charged.
