The next-generation NX crossover will be the first Lexus to be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, according to the leaked video from last week. The NX 450h+ will almost certainly be powered by the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine from 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.
Most importantly, the RAV4 Prime can travel 42 miles on a single charge. Charging times vary depending on the method — if the NX shares the same 6.6-kW charging capability as the RAV4 Prime Premium, replenishing the battery could take as little as 2.5 hours on a Live 2 charger.
