SAN FRANCISCO — Bauer's Worldwide Transportation is bringing a number of Lexus 400h hybrid sedans into its fleet. The RX 400H SUV is the third generation of Lexus hybrids, which works by seamlessly integrating a gas engine, an electric motor and a high-powered battery. The battery provides power for the electric motor and is recharged by recapturing energy that would normally be lost when decelerating or coasting.
Bauer's has been in the clean air business since 1999 with its airport shuttle fleet of electric buses. In 2005, Bauer's partnered with Google to add an additional 33 bio-diesel shuttles to the fleet to service Google employees.
