INTERIOR

A visual reference on the multi-information display allows the driver to monitor the power flow of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system. Animated arrows show the power flow between the hybrid battery, gasoline engine and electric-drive motor, so the driver can tailor their driving habits to optimize efficiency.
 

Voice-Activated HDD Navigation
Whether you have an entire address or just a business phone number, the available voice-activated HDD Navigation System  can help direct you to your destination with ease. It calculates up to three different routes and recognizes over 100 voice commands, including voice-activated destination input. The high-resolution screen makes your routes easy to follow.


EFFICIENCY
 

Energy normally lost as heat during braking and coasting is captured by an electric motor/generator to charge the hybrid battery. This helps keep the hybrid battery charged in its optimum range and increases fuel efficiency.


 



The Power of Responsibility
  • Whether it’s the creation of eco-advanced materials for our hybrids, the manufacturing plant, the hybrids themselves or their afterlife, we are always looking for ways to reduce waste and improve efficiencies.

     
  • Recyclable Plastics:
    Developed by our engineers, TSOP (Toyota Super Olefin Polymer) is a type of plastic that doesn’t deteriorate. It’s recyclable rather than being discarded as waste after a single use, and is used in many places such as bumpers, interior panels, trim and parts of the dash and console. It is such a significant breakthrough, we’ve made the formula available to every other car manufacturer.
     
  • Sustainable Material:
    Kenaf, a highly sustainable grass plant similar to bamboo, produces three harvestable crops per season and, as it grows, absorbs significantly more CO2 than timber. Once bonded with nonpetroleum glue, it is formed into compressed panels and can be used inside doors and other areas. Castor, another natural plant, is used in the construction of seat cushions and seatbacks of the HS.
     
  • Steel & Aluminum Reclamation:
    Lexus manufacturing sites have an underground conveyor-belt system that captures excess bits and scraps of steel and aluminum. Ultimately, these scraps are shipped back to the vendor to be melted down for reuse.
     
  • Recycled Content:
    When seat cushions, floor mats and roof liners are manufactured, the leftover bits and trimmings are not discarded. Instead, they are recycled and repurposed as sound insulation in the doors, roof, floors and chassis. This way, nothing goes to waste.
     
  • Specialized Incenerators:
    Even with strict efficiency measures in place, a small portion of material waste is inevitable. For this purpose, a specialized incinerator with 85% thermal efficiency is used to burn the waste, generating electricity and steam that is redirected back into the manufacturing process.
     
  • Low VOCs:
    Lexus helped develop a water-based paint used for undercoating and modified the painting process to shorten the drying time. The result: Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions are reduced by nearly 70% compared to solvent-based undercoats, and CO 2 emissions are reduced by nearly 15%.
     
  • Low Emissions:
    Having met or surpassed the stringent emission requirements, every Lexus Hybrid has been certified as a Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV II) by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
     
  • Fuel Efficiency:
    On the road, the Lexus Hybrids themselves help make less of an impact on the environment with better fuel efficiency. One of the main reasons for this innovation is the Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) systems on the Lexus Hybrids’ combustion engines. This intelligent system emits fewer emissions and provides greater efficiency by ensuring the least amount of fuel is used at all times.
     
  • Battery Recycling:
    The powerful batteries in a Lexus Hybrid are designed to last for the life of the vehicle. However, in the case of an accident or if the system ceases to function for some reason, Lexus reclaims the battery so it can be recycled or stored on-site in an environmentally sensitive way.
     
  • Zero LandFill Status:
    Every Lexus manufacturing site has Zero-landfill Status, meaning that any waste resulting from manufacture is recycled, repurposed or used to generate additional energy. Nothing is ever taken to a landfill.
