World premiere in China of Lexus' first EV, the UX 300e
Lexus will introduce its first battery electric vehicle (BEV), the UX 300e, at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition (November 22-December 1).
As the first production model under the Lexus Electrified banner, the all-electric UX 300e was developed for excellent on-road performance.
Lexus engineers kept the distinctive design and the utility characteristics of the UX crossover intact, and focused on the opportunities to build on the performance advantages unique to EVs.
The UX 300e’s front high-output motor (150 kW/300 Nm of torque) provides a natural-yet-brisk acceleration character, and the high-capacity Lithium Ion batteries (54.3kWh), located directly underneath the floor of the cabin, deliver a low center of gravity and 400km-driving range (NEDC).
The UX 300e is scheduled to go on sale in the Chinese and European markets in 2020, and in Japan early in 2021.
