Lexus doesn’t sell electric vehicles, but there are six hybrids in its lineup. These vehicles are available at a wide range of prices and varying levels of fuel efficiency. If you’re interested in a Lexus hybrid SUV, Lexus hybrid sedan, or Lexus hybrid sports car, keep reading to learn about their strengths and weaknesses. And find out which Lexus hybrid is the most efficient of them all.
As Lexus’ flagship sedan, the LS offers all the bells and whistles, including air suspension that provides a supple ride. Inside, you’ll find what may be the nicest interior Lexus has to offer, complete with beautiful wood trim, a 23-speaker sound system, a 24-inch head-up display, and massaging seats. This Lexus hybrid sedan, which pumps out 354 hp, can zip from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
2020 Lexus LC Hybrid | 30 MPG | $98,535
We love the LC’s stunning design, buttery smooth ride, and good handling. But frankly, we’d rather have the non-hybrid version. In past reviews, we were left unimpressed by the hybrid’s real-world fuel economy, and it’s noticeably slower than the regular V-8-powered model.
2020 Lexus RX Hybrid | 30 MPG | $47,825
Lexus has a hit on its hands with the RX. This midsize crossover is by far the best-selling vehicle in the automaker’s stable—in fact, sales of the RX exceeded sales of all the brand’s passenger cars combined last year. Not only does it feature a well-appointed interior, the hybrid version also has a powerful V-6 and electric motor system that work together to get you up to speed quickly, despite the crossover’s large size. Opting for a third row has a minimal effect on the Lexus hybrid’s MPG rating: 29 mpg compared to 30 mpg combined. All-wheel drive is standard on these Lexus hybrid models.
2020 Lexus NX Hybrid | 31 MPG | $40,445
The NX Hybrid is a refined compact crossover, and it won’t break the bank. It benefits from an excellent ride and a luxurious interior. Achieving 31 mpg in combined city and highway driving, it’s much more efficient than the gas-only NX, which tops out at 25 mpg. All-wheel drive is standard on this Lexus hybrid SUV.
2020 Lexus UX Hybrid | 39 MPG | $35,375
The smallest Lexus hybrid SUV you can buy is the UX Hybrid, and it comes standard with all-wheel drive. This vehicle is easy to park, relatively quiet on the road, and considering its strong fuel economy and stylish design, not a bad value. Unfortunately, the UX rides harshly over poor road surfaces. And because it can only carry about a week’s worth of groceries with the rear seats folded down, it might not be the right choice if you need a lot of space for your gear.
2020 Lexus ES Hybrid | 44 MPG | $42,835
Of all the Lexus hybrid models available, the ES is the most efficient. Drivers will find the ES Hybrid midsize sedan supremely comfortable. Along with a plush ride, smooth CVT, and lots of sound insulation from the road, this Lexus hybrid gets soft-touch materials everywhere you look inside the cabin. A 12.3-inch multimedia screen and 10.2-inch head-up display are some of the many available tech goodies. According to the EPA, the Lexus hybrid sedan can travel an impressive 581 miles on a tank.
