2007 Lexus RX 400h Ultra Premium Road Test (video)
I live in the North. Everything is 20 minutes by highway away from everything else and a far cry from the crowded streets where hybrid cars make most sense. Whether you drive in Sudbury Ontario or the crowded streets of Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver, Lexus's RX400h hybrid is a machine which doesn't make its powertrain the largest part of its identity- so you don't have to be driving through gridlock every day to justify owning one. The 400h is less a hybrid and more a capable luxury performance SUV with all-weather, all-road operation that happens to have a battery and motor drive system under the floor.
