Introduction to Self-Charging Hybrids

No need to plug-in. No need to change driving habits. No compromise in performance or fuel efficiency.

Lexus Self-Charging Hybrids are electrified vehicles with some potent differences over pure battery electrics. With a Lexus Hybrid, you never need to plug-in, worry about where the next charging station might be, or change your driving habits in any way. Just get in and go.

World’s first. Worlds apart.

Lexus introduced RX Hybrid - the world's first luxury self-charging hybrid - more than a decade ago. Since then, we've continued to push boundaries and pursue new innovations. Today, we offer more luxury hybrids than any other manufacturer in Canada. Test drive one for yourself and find out what millions of Lexus Hybrid drivers around the world have already discovered - power, exercised wisely, is a beautiful thing.

World’s first. Worlds apart.

Made in Canada. Made for Canada.

RX Hybrid is not only the original self-charging hybrid luxury SUV, it is also built at our internationally renowned plant in Cambridge, Ontario. With features like AWD and heated rear seats, it's the ideal vehicle for life in Canada - and just one of many great Lexus hybrids to choose from.

How Self-Charging Hybrids Work

How Self-Charging Hybrids Work


Lexus Self-Charging Hybrids combine a technologically advanced gas engine with a powerful battery and electric motor(s), and the intelligence to automatically select the best combination of gas and electric based on your driving needs. Because the battery re-charges both as you drive and during braking, you never need to take time out to plug-in, and you'll visit the gas pumps less often when compared to a conventionally powered Lexus RX.


Lexus Self-Charging Hybrids deliver an extraordinary blend of power and fuel efficiency; breathtaking acceleration and supremely quiet ride; engaging driving dynamics and blissful peace of mind.

Self-Charging Multi-Stage Hybrid

A world's first, Lexus' self-charging multi-stage hybrid technology takes the hybrid experience to an exhilarating new level.

A finely tuned 4-speed gearbox, added to the existing eCVT (Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission), creates a hybrid system that simulates a 10-speed transmission. That evokes the fiercely connected feel of selecting gears yourself - using steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Available now on the Lexus LS 500h and LC 500h, the Self-Charging Multi-Stage Hybrid is our latest innovation, and a taste of the dynamic innovations that are just down the road.

Reduce Harmful GHG Emissions

Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid’s are up to 70% cleaner than gas burning engines and diesels*, all while delivering dynamic handling and exceptional performance.

Regenerative Braking

Collecting otherwise discarded energy and reusing it as driving energy is another way that Lexus Self-Charging Hybrids get the most of every litre while reducing CO2 emissions – and your carbon footprint – at the same time.

Electric Mode Only

Under optimum conditions, a Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid can reach 50 km/h in electric mode only. That means less reliance on fuel and fewer emissions in most city driving situations.

Battery Recycling

Lexus is committed to the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle, and have pioneered the recycling of the batteries, motor magnets, and rare earth metals used in hybrid technology.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Depending on the vehicle, the mix of city versus highway speed driving, your driving habits, and how heavily the vehicle is loaded, the ability for a Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid to operate in electric mode only or in combination with the gas engine can significantly extend the distance between fill-ups, while dramatically reducing emissions versus a gas-only vehicle.
