The foundation of the 2025 NX lineup is its commitment to electrification through the visionary “Lexus Electrified” initiative, as explained by Lexus. “The 2025 NX lineup represents a pivotal moment in our journey towards sustainable mobility. By integrating advanced electrified powertrains, we aim to redefine the driving experience while reducing our environmental footprint.”


The NX 350h Hybrid Driving Experience

With the NX 350h hybrid, drivers can experience the best of both worlds: an efficient 240 combined system horsepower generated by a hybrid powertrain, which seamlessly integrates a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder gasoline engine with 2 high-torque electric drive motor-generators. This sophisticated powertrain ensures not only impressive performance but also remarkable fuel efficiency, with an EPA-estimated 39 MPG rating. Additionally, the NX 350h features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT), optimizing power delivery and enhancing the driving experience.

The interior of  the NX 350h is highlighted with a driver-focused cockpit with intuitive controls and information, including an available Head-Up Display and thematic ambient illumination options that create a serene driving environment.

With rapid charging capabilities and the standard 7 kW Onboard Charger, the NX 450h+ can be fully charged in about 3 hours, ensuring convenience for drivers on the move.

Additionally, this plug-in hybrid is equipped with regenerative braking technology, which captures and stores energy during deceleration, further enhancing efficiency and extending the electric driving range. The NX 450h+ offers drivers flexibility with its seamless transition between electric and hybrid modes. It maximizes fuel efficiency without compromising performance, making it the ultimate choice for environmentally conscious drivers who value sustainability and convenience.
