Electric cars are greener than internal combustion engine vehicles by a number of key measures, with the exception of the carbon intensity of the manufacturing process.
The Lexus Hybrid Drive system has been providing low running costs and efficient motoring since its introduction back in 2006. Since this time, the technology has been refined significantly. Like most hybrids, the Lexus Hybrid Drive combines two power sources - a petrol-driven combustion engine and a battery powered electric motor.
A Lexus Hybrid Drive model is comprised of six key components: the engine, electric motor, an electric generator, a battery, power control unit, and a power split device. This final component intelligently distributes power between the motor, engine, and generator, and through monitoring driving conditions switches between the electric motor and the petrol engine for the most efficient performance.
Electric vehicles are very economical to run. Most of the electric cars available from RMB Lexus cost between two and four pence per mile to run.
Generally speaking, maintenance costs for a hybrid car should not be any more than that of a regular car. Here at RMB Lexus, we have some excellent aftersales advisors who will be happy to help, and provide information on maintenance costs. Give us a call on 01642 931 264 and we'll assist you.
