Lexus Hybrid Drive Unique Energy Management System

Through the application of brand-specific engineering solutions and a unique energy management system incorporating bespoke software tuning, Lexus engineers have focused on enhancing both the environmental and driving performance of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system, as well as its uniquely low NVH levels.

Engine control and throttle responses have been tuned to deliver the engaging, dynamic driving experience appropriate to the first Lexus in the European premium compact segment, while the minimal Noise, Vibration and Harshness levels generated by the Lexus CT 200h's full hybrid powertrain reinforce the remarkable quietness inherent in the DNA of every Lexus model.
