Famously accredited for it’s ‘smooth hybrid powertrain’ by numerous online motoring critiques including WhatCar?, the RC 300h offers the driver the choice between low-speed, relaxed hybrid driving or kicking the engine into gear and experiencing the thrill of high-speed acceleration.
Beneath this sloping bonnet, in addition to the 2.5-litre petrol engine and hybrid system, lies a D-4S direct injection and dual VVT-i valve control. Not forgetting the extremely efficient ‘Atkinson Cycle’ 4-cyclinder engine, which reacts to Start/Stop technology.
Some believe the RC 300h to be the most alluring luxury Sports Coupé on the market, but one thing is for sure - this RC has reinvented the future of hybrid driving, as the world’s first luxury Sports Coupé to feature a full hybrid drivetrain. Developed on the Nürburgring racetrack but intended for everyday driving in built-up or fast moving traffic, the RC 300h features both a pioneering Full Hybrid Drive powertrain and an E-CVT automatic transmission.
Above all, you can expect a truly unforgettable driving experience, with low running costs and an extremely impressive fuel economy assured.
