Lexus added the 2024 Lexus RX 450h+ plug-in hybrid to its electrified lineup, the first hybrid in the RX line.
The RX 450h+ is powered by a high-capacity lithium-ion battery paired with a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine and has a combined 83 MPGe rating, according to Lexus. The RX 450h+ has a manufacturer-estimated 35-mile driving range rating on electric power only.
The RX 450h+ employs an electronically controlled, permanent all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. This system adjusts the distribution of torque between the front and rear wheels based on the prevailing driving conditions, granting the driver has the ability to tailor the vehicle’s behavior to their preferences across diverse road situations and driving modes.
Customers will receive a Level 1 vehicle-charging cable for 120V outlets and all models are equipped with a J1772 (Type 1) socket for at-home and public charging. Lexus said using the maximum charging current of 240V under ideal conditions, the RX 450h+ can be fully charged in approximately two-and-a-half hours using the standard 6.6 kW onboard charger.
