Take the next step on a Lexus NX with Chasing Cars:

Everybody knows that Lexus does hybrid engines well. But what about a plug-in hybrid? The luxury brand’s first PHEV is the 2022 Lexus NX450h+, which uses a 2.5-litre engine, three electric motors and a 18kWh battery to give a usable range of about 69km (42mi) while producing 227kW combined (304 hp).

But the NX450h+ PHEV costs a touch under $90,000 before on-road costs here in Australia. Does that make sense? Is this a great buy in the performance SUV space? In today’s episode of Chasing Cars, editor Tom Baker takes a close look at the plug-in hybrid NX F Sport.
