When you talk about luxury vehicles, the first brands that will come into your mind would be BMW, Mercedes Benz, Rolls Royce, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lincoln, Jaguar and Acura. But what others are not aware of is that Lexus, a subsidiary of the Toyota Motor Corporation, has become a tough competitor to these brands, and even surpassed some of them. Lexus has been considered as one of the best selling brands in the world, especially when it comes to luxury vehicles. It is obvious with the credit and admiration received by its models such as the Lexus IS, ES, GS, LS, SC, RX, GX, LX and JX, and LF-C and LF-A. Each of these models has significantly made an impact in the automobile history, in one way or another.
In 2004, Lexus had once again introduced another model in the name of Lexus RX 400h. Such model made use of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive technology. Such technology is comprised of several hybrid car technologies that were developed by Toyota, which combines the characteristics of an electric drive and continuously variable transmission, by employing electricity and transistors instead of toothed gears. It was commended for improving the vehicle's mileage complemented with decent acceleration.
Moreover, the RX 400h was introduced in 2004 during the North American International Auto Show to become the world's second mass-produced hybrid SUV next to Ford's Escape. However, the launching in America, Asia and Europe was a bit delayed until 2006, but a year earlier in the Japanese market as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Available powerplant for the RX 400h is a gasoline-powered 3.3-liter 3MZ-FE V6 engine that is capable of boosting 211 horsepower. On the other hand, the petrol engine has two additional electric motors — one for the front wheels to generate 167 horsepower, and another for the rear wheels to generate 68 horsepower.
To sum it up, the Lexus RX 400h is combination of power, performance, economy and most of all, environment-friendly emission, not to mention loads of standard features and equipments.
