The new Lexus LS and Sport sedan will sport an “electric power hatch” to provide an extra range of power. What exactly is an “electric power hatch”? Well, in layman’s terms, it’s a hatch that opens on top of your car so you can convert your existing car battery to run on electricity. This is called a “cell on board battery (Cob) conversion”. The advantage to this is that the engine is still going to run normally while the battery is charged and then is ready to go when the vehicle is pushed off the car battery. This is a fairly new feature for Lexus vehicles and I believe it’s going to be a hit for 2021.
Some may say “Won’t the battery power of the car be enough?”. The answer to that is no, there are still going to be times when you’ll need more juice from the battery. For most drivers that means adding a little extra juice from a larger capacity battery that can be taken to the nearest fueling station or even a Lexus Supercharger. Once the battery is fully charged then it’s ready to go.
Now back to the question, “Will the new Lexus LS and Sport hatch open up new doors for consumers looking to save money?” The answer is most likely yes. The new technology makes it possible for you to take your current battery and power your car with electricity. It’s called “Sonic Drive” and it will allow drivers to accelerate more quickly when the engine is running. This will most likely improve gas mileage as well as reduce wear and tear on the battery.
So what is it going to cost? Like most new products it will be somewhat on the expensive side but don’t expect to pay over $5000 for the luxury sports car. However, there are a lot of great discounts at dealerships right now and it is expected that prices will not stay low forever. For now, prices range from around $2500 to over half off retail. The savings really start getting into the lower price range with some dealers.
In addition to all of this, there is one other advantage that makes the Lexus Launches New Electric Car stands out from the rest. The new technology allows the batteries to be recharged thousands of times before needing replacement. While that might seem like a long lifetime, you can imagine how much money you could be saving over the course of your lifetime. That’s because electric cars never run out of charge and they continue to get better as technology continues to advance.
So now you have a clear overview of what’s in store for you when you take a look at the new Lexus LS and Sport hatch. You also have a good idea of why it is so expensive and why you should wait to get one. Not only is it going to be a highly beneficial purchase for you and your family, it is likely to save you hundreds of dollars on fuel costs over the life of the vehicle. Once you drive your new Lexus Launch New Electric Car, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without one.
