Lexus' first all-electric vehicle, the UX 300e, will make its European debut on March 3 at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show

Since introducing the RX 400h in 2005, Lexus has been a pioneer in vehicle electrification technology, playing a leading role in offering products that possess both performance and environmental friendliness

At the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus unveiled its global electrification strategy, called “Lexus Electrified”, which targets a fundamental leap in vehicle performance, handling, control and driver enjoyment

In particular, the technology of ‘Lexus Electrified’ enables integrated control of powertrain, steering, suspension, and brakes, realizing the ultimate potential of the motor control technology cultivated in hybrid vehicles. With this technology, we can control the driving force to provide ideal vehicle posture according to each driving situation. Lexus endeavors to continue providing enjoyable and safer driving vehicles

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 Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

Lexus has always focused on providing a distinctive driving performance, and the case is no different with development of a BEV. Starting from the refined Lexus driving signature of the UX, Lexus engineers were able to leverage the new electric drivetrain to even further enhance the vehicle’s on-road performance

The UX 300e provides excellent dynamic performance thanks to the low center of gravity resulting from motor and battery placement underneath the vehicle body, combined with optimized of front/rear weight distribution and moment of inertia

While BEVs are naturally quiet, UX 300e adds insulation beyond just the battery and suppresses outside noises such as wind or pebbles which would be otherwise noticeable in the absence of an engine and transmission

In developing the UX 300e, Lexus utilized the knowledge acquired developing the brand’s industry-leading hybrid systems and applied the same level of quality and comfortable operation to its first production BEV

Battery reliability is outstanding, and everyday usability is optimized by using the latest connectivity technology and smartphone-based remote operations

The UX 300e will be launched in selected European markets in the second half of 2020, and from 2021 in the rest of Europe
