The technological wheel of life of every new product involves different stages. First, the concept must be proven feasible, no matter how r/ludicrous it may seem initially. Then it must be shown that the idea must be translated to something tangible, sold, and mass-produced. After these critical stages have been rightly justified with mass acceptance in the bag, the product value will soar high from that point. This case is synonymous with Tesla.
It’s no news that Tesla’s new green driving 100% electric business model has taken the world by storm. And as never before, more and more manufacturers, designers, and innovators are on the quest to engineer an automobile to run on fewer and fewer gallons of fuels upon every mile. Those who have successfully achieved this are now concerned with battery technology development (finding means of extending EV range in between charges). But that’s not specifically why we are here now. The thing is, as new cars get more technologically advanced and embrace the going green initiative, a new trend in car leasing with more value has kicked off.
So far, lots of things have been said and written on the good stuff about hybrid cars like the new Lexus RX and even more on the electric vehicles (EVs). Talk about its improved driving experience and fuel economy compared to its combustion engine options. Of course, the so obvious noteworthiness, its role in the future of transportation that will contribute near to zero or zero to environmental pollution and global warming. It will also slow down the consumption of dwindling world petroleum reserves.
However, when you want to lease a new energy-saving car, you have to weigh your options between going for fully electric car models like the new Tesla Model Y and the alternative green cars-Hybrid, like the Lexus RX. For those who like high seating positions, leasing any of these two models will give you the best lease deal value. The question now is between these two options, which offer more excellent value?
Electric Vehicle Or Hybrid? Tesla Model Y Or Lexus RX
Why electric, why not a hybrid or even a gas-powered vehicle? The answer is simple. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly option for your new vehicle, then the chances are you’d be considering leasing a hybrid car or a fully electric car at best. These energy cars are not only beneficial for the environment. They can also save you hundreds to thousands of dollars that you would otherwise be spending on gasoline and other general motor expenses. This makes leasing an energy car a wise option, anytime, any day.
Bringing the comparison a little closer to home, with gasoline options out of the competition, what remains is the all-electric Tesla Model Y and the new Lexus RX hybrid model.
The Lexus RX Hybrid is an excellent option for shoppers in the luxury hybrid and electric SUVs. Available for lease in two body styles; the two-row and the three rows body styles. It offers a stylish cabin with super comfy seats, stable ride, and packs of standard and available tech features. However, as sleek and fuel-efficient as it comes, it offers subpar performance.
The new Tesla Model Y is the brand’s first attempt on the trendy SUV market. And true enough, it was a faultless and spot on adventure. This model rightly appeals to many luxury SUV shoppers who want to lease a green car. From its long-range to its exhilarating performance, deluxe cabin, and crisp acceleration that’s part of every luxury Tesla’s EVs, this SUV is worth every dime that comes with it.
Engine And Performance
The new Tesla Model Y offers an impressive long range and performance. Its 75 kWh battery pack pushes it to make 384 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. It further makes 0-60 mph at 4.8-seconds with a top speed of 135 mph.
The Lexus hybrid powertrain with a 308 horsepower comprises of a 3.5-liter V6 and two electric motors. It also runs at 7.9 seconds from zero to 60 mph.
Fuel Economy And Battery
The all-wheel-drive Model Y has 316 miles of range. It also bags an estimated EPA rating of 129 MPGe in the city and 112 MPGe on the highway. It can recharge 158 miles in 15 minutes.
The Lexus RX clearly outshines most SUVs in its class when it comes to fuel efficiency. With the hybrid powertrain or not. The RX Hybrid gets 31 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway ratings.
Interior And Cargo
Tesla offers a seating capacity of five in its two rows. However, an optional third-row seat to push it to seven is available for $3,000. The new Model Y also boasts of 68 cubic feet of cargo space.
RX Hybrid seats a total of five passengers in its two rows. Its optional third-row pushes it to six. However, just like that of Tesla, the RX’s third row is pretty cramped. RX offers 55.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down.
When it comes to car technology, no auto brand comes close to Musk’s Tesla. Model Y offers the best infotainment technology you can get in the market. Its 15×10-inch touchscreen delicately positioned in the middle of the dash provides way beyond regular infotainment options.
To add to the fun, this Tesla further grants a forward-facing radar, eight cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and an Autopilot system with functions of an adaptive cruise control system and active lane control. An optional Full Self-Driving suite is available at $8,000.
The Tesla also shares some similar standard tech and safety features with the RX like an automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, side-collision warnings, and so on.
