Why buy hybrid or electric?

Lexus is famously putting its energies into creating market-leading vehicles that reduce the impact that motoring has on the environment. But as a driver, why should you choose a hybrid or electric model over a petrol or diesel?

Cleaner Motoring

The obvious benefit of choosing a hybrid or electric car is that it’s better for the environment. The addition of electric power to a conventional fuel engine cuts the emissions produced and ensures less fuel is used per mile than in fuel-only cars. Of course, fully-electric models don’t produce any CO2 emissions at all, making them the greenest possible choice.

Cheaper Running Costs

Those who want to cut their day-to-day running costs will also find hybrids and electric cars a good option. Improved fuel economy means longer between tank refills, saving you money in the long run. Electricity is cheaper than traditional fuel too, so recharging the battery of your EV is generally considered more cost-effective that refuelling a conventional vehicle.

In addition, servicing and maintenance of hybrids and EVs often proves cheaper, as there are fewer parts to assess and maintain.

Advanced Technology

Tech enthusiasts might find hybrid and electric vehicles appealing due to their innovative powertrains and range of advanced features. From digital instrument displays to state-of-the-art safety systems to premium sound systems, low-emissions vehicles often boast the very latest measures for your convenience and protection.
