Building on the all-new redesign of its RX crossover vehicle last year, Lexus is adding the anticipated plug-in hybrid to the electrified lineup: the 2024 Lexus RX 450h+.
Powered by a 96-cell lithium-ion battery pack paired with a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine (shared with NX), the 2024 RX 450h+ hybrid system has a manufacturer-estimated combined 83 MPGe rating. The system provides acceleration off the line with an estimated 6.2 second 0-60 time. The RX 450h+ has a manufacturer-estimated 35-mile driving range rating on electric power only.
The RX450h+ comes equipped with 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. A high-output, high-efficiency system designed to reduce power loss when converting from AC power to DC power results in faster charging times. Using the maximum charging current of 240V and under ideal conditions, the Lexus RX 450h+ can be fully charged in approximately two-and-a-half hours using the standard 6.6 kW Onboard Charger.
The RX 450h+ utilizes an electronically controlled, full-time AWD system. Optimizing front and rear torque distribution according to the driving conditions, the driver can control the vehicle as preferred throughout varied road conditions and driving styles.
The RX 450h+ comes standard with the luxury grade features found on the 2023 RX. Starting MSRP is $70,080; the RX 450H+ will be available by the end of 2023.
