Just a few months ago, Lexus announced an ambitious electrification strategy in which it would add 20 vehicles to its lineup by 2025. So, between hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fully battery-powered EVs, the upscale Toyota automaker hopes to eventually offer an electric variant alongside each one of its existing models, with the ultimate goal being carbon neutrality by 2050.

Eager to make good on its promises, Lexus has just unveiled the first of such vehicles: the second generation NX SUV. While it’s available in four different drivetrain flavors — including the petrol-powered NX 250 and NX 350 — the stars of the range are undoubtedly the hybrids. For in addition to a 239hp NX 350h, Lexus will also be building an AWD NX 450h+ PHEV that’s good for 304hp and a 6-second 0-60mph sprint. And that’s not all; inside, the 2022 NX receives some of the most technological updates since the brand’s launch courtesy of an all-new Lexus Interface system. Available with either a standard 9.8-inch touchscreen or an optional 14-inch unit, it supports virtual assistance, individualized user profiles, digital key sharing, as well as a slew of safety features like emergency steer and road sign assist. Launching this autumn, you can check it out at the link below.
