The infrastructure for electric chargers has developed around the world, and Lexus has decided to offer a hybrid that you can charge from the mains. The new NX450h+ and 350h models come with further improvements in technology, comfort, safety and convenience.
In the new Lexus, the driver should feel as if they are in their living room, while feeling confident and knowing they are sitting in a modern style. Professional competitors also participated in the development of new models, and their feedback was incorporated into the final models.
design Focus on rest
Compared with the first generation NX, the overall length of the novelty has been increased by 20 mm, the wheelbase by 30 mm, the width by 20 mm, and the height by 5 mm. The goal is clear – more space for passengers and more comfort. He also thinks of the passengers in the back.
When we look at the car from the front, it seems obvious at first glance – it’s a Lexus. You immediately see the huge spindle radiator grille. So it can’t be anything other than a Lexus. The larger 20-inch wheels are also important to the overall impression.
The cabin design focuses on the principle of “Hands on the wheel, eyes on the roadWhen you use a particular key, its shape will appear on the display in front of the driver, so you don’t have to look at the steering wheel to check if you’re pressing the right button.
The new NX is now equipped with an electronic locking system Electronic latch to open the door. It is an electronic system that replaces the interior door handle with a button switch located next to the armrest in the door panel. By the way, the time for opening and closing the tailgate has been halved and is now only four seconds.
Lexus already owns a plug-in hybrid. It works fine
Lexus NX 450h + G Hybrid electric vehicle. At the same time, Lexus has been sticking to this for a long time, so that the driver has as little trouble charging as possible, and the battery is charged while at rest. Due to the fact that the infrastructure of electric charging devices is also growing significantly in Slovakia, we are entering a new situation. Charging the car battery from the mains is no longer a problem and the battery range has increased significantly. At the same time, you still have a tailgate that you can drive without restrictions with an internal combustion engine, and the entire system continues to use energy recovery during braking to recharge the battery. This is clearly a step in the right direction at this time.
The Lexus NX 450h + is equipped 2.5L Hybrid Engine And also from rechargeable tubes Lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 18 kWhIt is the highest capacity in its class. The additional electric motor at the back ensures the power of the motor All four wheels. The plug-in system develops 306 horses and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in about 6 seconds. Estimated CO2 emissions less than 40g/km and fuel consumption Less than 3 liters / 100 km. It is clear that such an average consumption of the driver will please.
This car has electricity up to 63 km a The maximum speed for pure electric driving is 135 km/h.
As we indicated, the additive hybrid system maintains high efficiency Even after the battery is discharged. For many competitors, operation is set to an internal combustion engine as standard, but on the NX 450h+ the default setting is a hybrid drive system with no external charging required. Thus the NX 450h+ continues to operate as a hybrid system and recovers energy during braking, thus recharging the battery.
In addition, the use of the plug-in system does not limit the practical advantages of the NX model – the luggage compartment has the same volume as the hybrid model. There is also 21 liters of space under the luggage compartment floor, allowing charging cables to be stored in an organized manner. The fuel tank volume also remained unchanged, in this case 55 liters.

NX 350h with 4G Hybrid Technology
The NX 350h then uses the fourth generation of recovery-based hybrid driving technology. This generation delivers 25% more performance than in the past. Id eo is a classic hybrid in which the battery is charged exclusively by reboot.
The engine is a 2487cc, 16-valve in-line four-cylinder with a maximum torque of 210 Nm. The car is arriving now Maximum power 244 hpWhile acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h increased by 15% and reached 7.7 seconds. At the same time, carbon dioxide emissions were reduced by about 10%.
The NX 350h will be available with front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). The towing capacity of the all-wheel drive model has been increased to 1,500 kg, which corresponds to the capacity of the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) version.

The foundation is the GA-K . platform
Standing on the GA-K platform, the new NX models offer a lower center of gravity (-20 mm), an increased front and rear wheelbase, and a more balanced weight distribution between front and rear. The body is stronger and tougher.
Operating the multimedia system in the new NX is as easy as using a tablet. The multimedia platform provides intelligent services such as Cloud Mobility, while the vehicle is permanently connected to mobile data. The purchase price includes a four-year data package, so you don’t pay anything extra or change your data. Then cloud navigation provides real-time travel and traffic information.
