Power when you need it
In addition to the petrol engine and electric motor, the LF-CC hybrid drive system also comprises a generator, a high-performance battery and a power split device. According to the driving requirements, power from the engine, electric motor and generator is combined and re-allocated using planetary reduction gears. There's also a compact power control unit to govern the high-speed interaction of the system components.
Adapted specifically for the hybrid powertrain, the all-new 2.5 litre, DOHC, 4-cylinder petrol engine benefits from several technical improvements. Adopting the Atkinson cycle and D-4S direct injection technology, both the power and fuel-efficiency benefits of Lexus Hybrid Drive are optimised to reach their full potential.
