The future of cars lies in electrification. Take that step forward with one of Lexus's full hybrid cars and enjoy luxurious comfort while saving the earth.

The whole world is pushing towards electrification - Singapore is aiming to phase out all petrol and diesel cars by 2040, while most car manufacturers are also planning to include some form of electrification on their line ups in the near future.

Electrification is a big step forward. What it means to the world, is the possibility of transportation that runs on clean energy with zero tailpipe emissions. However, for electric cars to fully replace internal combustion cars, there are many kinks to work out, such as charging infrastructures and battery life.

In the meantime, before the switch to the full electric future, hybrid cars are the best bet. Here's why.

Unsurpassed fuel efficiency

The hybrid systems in hybrid cars are able to assist the internal combustion engine, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. Drivers of traditional internal combustion cars can expect massive fuel savings of around 40% when switching over to a full hybrid.

While there are also mild hybrids available in the market, these are usually only equipped with an integrated starter generator, which does little to aid the engine, often resulting in just minimal fuel efficiency gains.

If you want to go further with the same amount of fuel, full hybrids such as Lexus's range of full hybrid models are the undisputed choice. And with one, you don't have to worry about range anxiety or charging time like you would with electric cars - the electric drivetrain in a full hybrid is self-charging.

Quiet, comfortable and refined driving experience

The powerful hybrid drivetrain found in Lexus's full hybrid cars are able to assist the internal combustion engine and help to torque fill as and when needed.

This results in a much lower load on the engine, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. Unlike traditional internal combustion engine cars, a Lexus full hybrid does not have to strain out its engine in order to accelerate off the line.

As such, you can expect not just a powerful ride, but a smooth and refined drive. Coupled with Lexus's luxurious and quality build, you can expect nothing but the best driving experience.
