At Lexus, we have a deep commitment to the environment and to the world we are creating for future generations. As scientific reports point to further increases in the earth's temperature and the disastrous effects this can cause, Lexus is vigorously working to improve outcomes on many fronts.

Cleaner process for a cleaner future

We are continually finding ways to make our manufacturing processes cleaner. We have made dramatic reductions to water usage, and the production of waste and scrap material in our plants in recent years.

Our recycling technology is continually being improved and we are on target to achieve a 95% recovery rate of our vehicles by 2015. That means all but a tiny 5% of materials will be recovered and recycled, to be later reused in helping create even better Lexus vehicles in the future.

At Lexus of Parramatta, we are continuing to improve our environmental impact and ongoing effort to our Environmental Policy. As a result of this commitment, we replaced all plastic to biodegradable products in May 2017.

We also reduce our waste through returning components for rebuilding or recycling. 

We believe our efforts, along with everyone else's, can do a world of good.

Hybrid and beyond

Our commitment also extends well beyond hybrid technology. The development of innovations like VVT-i, direct injection, lightweight alloy engines and advanced transmissions have dramatically improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Body designs honed in wind tunnels minimise power-sapping wind drag.

Computer modelling before actual manufacture allows bodies to be designed which are lighter in weight without compromising strength, by eliminating unnecessary excess material in non-critical areas.

Advanced plastics like Toyota Super Olefin Polymer used in interiors are able to be recycled, while the amount of lead and mercury have been reduced by substituting them for.

The Lexus Hybrid Drive solution

Through Lexus Hybrid Drive, we are creating vehicles which deliver guilt-free performance. We have invested many millions of dollars developing Lexus Hybrid Drive into an engine system that delivers increased power with decreased fuel consumption and emissions.

Lexus Hybrid Drive is also smoother, quieter, and delivers instant response that defies its status as an 'economy' solution.

In addition, the energy which is normally wasted while slowing down or braking is conserved as electricity which is stored in the battery. When stopped at traffic lights, the vehicle actually switches off to conserve fuel. When brisk acceleration is needed, the petrol engine and high output electric motors combine to deliver dramatic acceleration rivalling far thirstier conventional vehicles.
