A NEW low emission derivative of the Lexus NX mid-sized SUV is being released offering business drivers the potential to save more than £800 in vehicle tax over a three year period.

The front-wheel-drive NX has CO2 emissions rated at 161g/km - a reduction of 10g/km over the 4x4 model - which moves the car into a low tax banding for both private and company car drivers.

Where VED is concerned, the annual saving is £330. For company car tax-payers, the benefit-in-kind rating is 35 per cent in the first year compared to 37 per cent for the NX with all-wheel drive.

The new powertrain delivers a saving of £418 in the first year and £832 over three years for a business motorist paying income tax at 40 per cent, says Lexus.

Powered by a self-charging hybrid electric system, the new NX has an official combined cycle figure of 39.7mpg. The hybrid system also allows the vehicle to be driven in all-electric EV mode in urban traffic, with zero emissions and zero fuel consumption when driving conditions and battery charge level permit.

The new NX, which sits on 17-inch wheels, is priced from £35,860 and deliveries will start when conditions relating to the current Covid-19 pandemic permit.
