New RX 450h+ plug-in hybrid electric joins the RX lineupAug 18th, 2023
There’s a new member in the RX family: the 2024 RX 450h+, our first plug-in hybrid with an electric powertrain under the RX badge. Its arrival supports our mission to provide Canadians with a variety of luxury vehicle options that have lower emissions and electrified powertrains.
The 2024 RX 450h+ does just that. Its high-capacity, lithium-ion battery is complemented with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine with a combined fuel consumption of 2.8 Le/100 km. It’ll get 60 km of driving range when set to electric-only mode.
“Given the RX is our all-time best-selling model in Canada and was the first luxury SUV to be offered with a hybrid powertrain, adding our plug-in hybrid electric technology to the RX is one of the most important things we’ve done to advance that goal,” says Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus Canada. “The RX 450h+ demonstrates, yet again, the Lexus strategy to encourage Canadian Guests to embrace vehicle electrification with compelling, practical, real-world solutions that complement every luxury lifestyle.”

The power is there, too. With luxury performance a pillar in everything we do, the acceleration on the RX 450h+ is undeniably smooth, offering a sporty driving experience. It will go from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
Don’t expect to be waiting around for the RX 450h+. Its charging times are incredibly quick thanks to a high-output, high-efficiency system that has been specially designed to curb power loss when converting from AC power to DC power, resulting in quicker charges.
There’s plenty of room for personalization with the RX 450h+, too. For starters, there are eight exterior colour options to choose from, including Eminent White Pearl, Cloudburst Gray, Iridium, Caviar, Matador Red Mica, Copper Crest, Nori Green Pearl and Nightfall Mica.
The famed Lexus spindle grille and body design have a sporty, yet stately shape and the 21-inch, 20-spoke alloy wheels, which are completed with a dark premium metallic finish, accentuate the wide, low body of the RX 450h+. Other noteworthy exterior features include the triple beam premium LED headlamps with Adaptive High Beam System and the panoramic glass roof.
Inside, standard features include a 21-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound System, a heated wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel, perforated semi-aniline leather-trimmed interior and of course heated and ventilated power driver/front/rear passenger seats.
