First 100% electric car from Lexus: UX 300e



The first electric Lexus is based on the UX crossover and is called the UX 300e. The Japanese electric car is powered by a 204 HP electric motor with a 54.3 kWh lithium-ion battery guaranteed for 10 years or a million kilometres.

For the UX 300e, Lexus has developed a safer and lighter air cooling system for battery cells than water-cooled systems. By working in harmony with the interior air conditioning, the system increases the car's performance, battery life and charging performance.

The electric car Lexus UX 300e is powered by a 150 kW (204 HP) engine that develops a maximum torque of 300 Nm. The engine is connected with an ultra-compact transmission, with a 3-shaft layout and a reduction mechanism to allow high engine speeds. The electric motor is powered by a 54.3 kWh lithium-ion battery, which guarantees the electric Lexus a range of approximately 400 km (NEDC cycle).

The battery of the electric Lexus UX 300e is covered by a 10-year warranty (or 1,000,000 km) on all operating defects and capacity degradation below 70%. The ten-year warranty is legitimate provided that the usual checks provided for in the maintenance schedule are respected. The battery supports fast-charging up to 50 kW. Also, it can be recharged with AC 6.6 kW alternating current.

Lexus has developed special aerodynamic wheels and a specific underbody cover for the UX 300e.

Finally, on the ADAS front, the electric Lexus UX300e adopts the innovative Lexus Safety System + active safety system.

Lexus UX 300e will be introduced on the Chinese and European market in 2020.
