The "b" gear is for engine breaking. It uses the electric motor to slow the car down.
You can compare it to be like down shifting in a gas engine transmission.

The only option was buying the CT and now you can get a Scion.

That just came out. It was not available last year.

I agree. But on a corolla would be 3K max.
I would not be surprised if another +2K for parts just because it is a lexus. So I could see $5K.

It should only open after the engine is warmed up. ...
