This may seem like an unfair comparison…but let us explain…

There has been a number of luxury car buyers flocking to the Tesla Model 3 because of the promises it has made towards a zero-emissions, all-electric future. But the Lexus RX offers many advantages over the Tesla Model 3.

  • The RX is a hybrid model designed for more efficiency and a quieter drive. Plus, it charges by itself through regenerative braking. No need to plug in an RX 450h. That also means a savings of $2,000 on installing a charger at home.
  • The RX also has an easy-to-operate interior with informative instrumentation and simple access to infotainment options. A true cockpit design – not a study on minimalism.
  • While you have to use a network of “superchargers” to recharge the Model 3 away from home, the RX 450h can be refueled anywhere where regular gasoline is sold. There are a lot more gasoline stations than charging ones.
  • In order to get a Model 3, you would have to order one online. Lexus of Henderson has an actual inventory available with the features you are looking for. You can actually test drive an RX and take one home without waiting for one to be produced.
  • Getting your RX serviced? No problem! We even have loaner cars and a nice lounge to relax in at our dealership. Where would you get your Model 3 serviced?

Most importantly, customers choose the RX 350 and RX 450h for its value. You can get more in any RX than any comparable Model 3 – at a price that sits well in your wallet.
