Lexus Es300h Hybrid to dominate sales in 2013
|   Friday, April 05, 2013
Hybrid cars have been the craze for the last few years. The fuel efficiency that the hybrid power trains supply is far better compared to the fuel efficiency of the diesel or petrol based engines. The hybrid engine utilizes an electric powered motor alongside the diesel or petrol engine to provide supreme fuel efficiency. The combined efficiency is more in case of a diesel engine and electric motor combination than that of a petrol engine and electric motor combination.


Many cars from the major automobile manufacturing brands from all over the worlds have experimented with hybrid power trains in the last few years. The new Lexus Es300h Hybrid is the latest innovation in the field of hybrid engines and takes the concept to the next level.

The new Lexus Es300h Hybrid is almost similar to the Es350 from the company, driven by a V6 engine, except for the fact that this car has a hybrid power train. The company is pretty confident with their new release. They believe that out of the 60,000 potential customers of the cars from the company in the year 2013, as much as 25% will go for the hybrid version of the car.

The hybrid engine is not only much more fuel efficient, but it is also much smoother and also a lot quieter. The electric motor, or in the case of the new Lexus Es300h, two electric motors also decreases the carbon dioxide emissions of the car making it Eco friends.

The two electric motors used in the new Lexus Es300h hybrid are known as the MG1 and MG2. The two electric motors have quite different functions. The electric motor comes with the standard 4 cylinder gasoline engine of capacity 2.5 liters. The power ratings of the petrol engine alone are impressive enough at 159 HP.

The MG1 serves the purpose of a motor or a generator that will work as the engine driven source of power for the batteries. The MG1 also serves the purpose of starting up the internal combustion engine. The MG2 serves a completely different purpose in the power train. The MG2 is primarily responsible for the propulsion provided by the electric driven half of the power train. It also serves the purpose of changing into generator mode in times of regenerative braking. The power output of the MG2 is not supplied separately although the company supplies the total power rating figures of the drive train, which is an impressive 141 horsepower, and 199 lb ft of torque at high rotations per minute.

The new Lexus Es300h Hybrid comes in three different driving modes, similar to its predecessor, the normal mode, the eco mode and the sport mode. The ease of handling of the new Lexus Es300h and the high performance of the one of a kind power train installed in it makes it amazing. The fuel economy supplied by this unique power train is 33 miles per gallon. This is a very impressive figure in modern times, even for a hybrid power train.
