With a four-cylinder gas engine and twin electric motor arrangement

(Lexus Plug-in Hybrid Electric Drive), the NX series plug-in vehicles

have the same mechanical architecture as the Toyota RAV4 Prime Plug-in.

This combination allows them to attain a total system horsepower of 304.

the 450h+ provides plenty steady power for daily driving, which is really the main function of these cars.

The electrical system of the plug-in adds more low- and mid-range power, which improves rapid passing and merging manoeuvres.
