Lexus has registered the RX 450h+ trademark in Europe, suggesting a plug-in hybrid version of the brand’s best-selling model is in the works.
The RX 450h+ will almost certainly be powered by the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine found in the Toyota RAV4 Prime. This powertrain is rated at 302 horsepower, with an estimated 90 MPGe and a 0-60mph time of 5.8 seconds.
Lexus has also registered a European trademark for the NX 450h+ nameplate, which is expected to the brand’s first plug-in hybrid.
