A new, fourth-generation Hybrid Drive System is used in the 2019 Lexus ES 300h. In addition to delivering stronger performance and exemplary fuel economy, the latest Hybrid Drive System has been designed to help eliminate the rubberband feeling associated with some hybrid systems.
An all-new 2.5-liter, four-cylinder gas engine running on the Atkinson cycle is coupled with a smaller, more power dense electric motor and an all-new hybrid transaxle. The internal results are a combined 215 total system horsepower and a manufacturer estimated 44 combined mpg.
The new aluminum-intensive gas engine delivers exceptional efficiency by combining a high-speed combustion design with several variable systems designed to conserve energy. The result is an engine that has a nearly identical displacement to its predecessor, yet delivers approximately 20 additional horsepower and 12 additional lb.-ft. of torque.
The nickel-metal hydride battery that powers the electric motor has been relocated from the trunk to underneath the back seat. Moving the battery under the seat not only frees up trunk space, it also improves the front-to-rear weight distribution of the ES for better handling.
The hybrid control system is now designed to deliver a more linear acceleration feel by aligning engine speed more closely with vehicle speed to reduce the rubber band feel commonly associated with hybrid systems.
Buyers will find the 2019 ES sedan more spacious and quieter with sharpened performance, advanced active safety technology and a level of craftsmanship rarely found in this segment. Its stance and proportions reflect its newfound performance capabilities and give the ES the kind of eye-catching appearance that will make owners take a second look as they walk away. The ultra-sharp LCD instrument panel features a large analog tachometer, digital speedometer and easy-to-read multi-information display.
