It’s about time the world realizes that oil is a very limited resource and gas prices are not going down anytime soon. Good thing that car companies all over the globe are doing their part on slowing the process of global warming. On the side of Lexus, they came up with the RX450h. The Lexus RX450h is a hybrid with features that even the most conservative environmentalist will be held in awe.
First, it’s an elegant SUV on the outside with all the power of a tractor and emissions with environmental impact comparable to a butterfly’s fart. The RX450hâ€˜s unbelievable gas consumption of 44.8 mpg is like how a man stuck in a dessert would save his water. The big secret lies on its hybrid propulsion system powered by three motors, one V6 and two of electric variety mounted on the rear and front. Working together they can accelerate this behemoth from 0-60 mph in 7.9 sec and reach the max speed of 124 mph in no time. It also has an all-electric driving mode that makes the Lexus RX450h travel in less than 3 miles.
The other significant feature of this SUV is the Lexus Remote Touch which is comparable to a PC mouse. It is used to access the different menus on the 8 inch LCD and surprisingly even drive the Lexus itself. Further notable features are line of sight displays, superb sound system and automatic suspension.
