Lexus is well-known for being ground breaking in terms of hybrid technology, but this isn’t just an environmental benefit, it’s also excellent news for company car drivers.
One of the class-leading models Lexus has in terms of efficiency is the GS 300h, which promises the best in benefit-in-kind (BiK) rates.
With its GS 300h model, Lexus offered two different hybrid powertrains in a single body style for the first time.
When fitted with the 2.5-litre Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain, the GS 300h has a combined fuel cycle of 60.1mpg and records CO2 levels of 109g/km.
These figures mean that the GS 300h has a 14 per cent BiK tax rate, not only this but Lexus claims that it can save customers up to more than £2,000 a year on their tax bill.
It’s not just the one model that offers company car drivers excellent benefits, in fact Lexus boasts proudly of its RX 450h model, calling it a ‘tax haven’.
Although it’s not quite on the same level as the GS 300h, the RX 450h model’s efficiency figures are competitive for the Large SUV market.
Lexus claims that its RX 450h model produces just 145g/km of CO2, which again, is impressive for a 4x4 and this translates to a BiK tax rate of 22 per cent.
Although incredibly efficient, both models are impressive for performance, with the GS 300h recording a zero to 62mph time of 9.2 seconds and it will manage a top speed of 119mph.
Here, the Lexus RX 450h just pips it to the post as it will complete the benchmark sprint in 7.8 seconds and it will go on to a top speed of 124mph.
These are just two prime examples of Lexus’ efficiency and BiK tax benefits, for more information on these or any of our Lexus models, contact our team today.
