LEXUS RX 450h Recognised as the Best Premium Hybrid Car in the DrivingElectric Awards.
An introduction of the Lexus RX Model.
The Lexus RX is one of the most significant models in Lexus’s history. The original RX which was launched back in 1998 was a unique proposition in its day: an SUV that was luxurious, comfortable and
easy to drive, particularly in urban environments where conventional 4x4s proved unwieldy.
It was an instant success and inspired a new and vital market segment in which today almost every premium manufacturer is represented.
Now spanning across two decades, Lexus has constantly improved the RX, which quickly became its worldwide best-selling model.
Cumulative global sales to date have reached three million units. Its importance to the brand is witnessed by the fact it became Lexus’s and the
world’s first luxury self-charging hybrid vehicle. This was with the introduction to the market of the Lexus RX 400h back in 2005.
Nowadays the current fourth generation Lexus RX has pushed the boundaries of the luxury SUV concept even further following its launch in 2015, as it acquired more emotional design and more engaging driving dynamics.
It increased its market appeal with the addition of the seven-seat Lexus RX L model added back in 2018.
