Lexus finally enters the world of all- electric cars with the 2021 UX 300 e . More details on the battery-powered crossover at AutoGuide.com. Nonetheless, as the beginning of what the Japanese brand calls “ Lexus Electrified”, the UX 300 e is an important signal of what’ s to come.

An electric version of the Lexus UX has been revealed. The Lexus UX 300e is the company’s first electric car and it comes with 50kW DC fast-charging capability. No prices or specifications have been revealed yet, as the car isn’t due to go on sale until 2021, but we expect it to cost from around £40,000.

At that price, it would be similarly priced to top-spec versions of the UX, and would rival the Kia e-Niro, Hyundai Kona Electric and DS 3 Crossback E-Tense.

The UX 300e will feature a 54.3kWh battery and an electric motor, with a claimed range of up to 250 miles. However, as this figure is based on the outdated lab-based NEDC emissions test, we expect a real-world figure closer to 200 miles between charges. This would put it on a par with the electric DS 3, but it’ll have a shorter range than the Hyundai and Kia, as well as the Peugeot e-208 and Nissan Leaf.

2020 Lexus RX 450h review: dependably different

  2020 Lexus RX 450h review: dependably different The Lexus RX 450h is a luxury SUV with hybrid power. This mid-life update builds on its traditional strengths of comfort, refinement and reliability. The post 2020 Lexus RX 450h review: dependably different appeared first on Motoring Research.

The electric Lexus crossover has paddle shifters that control engine braking through four levels of deceleration regeneration. We can now regretfully inform our primarily American readership that this fancy new car won't be coming to America, because the 2021 Lexus UX 300 e won't be the brand ' s

Lexus announces its first all- electric vehicle , the UX 300 e , which will be available in Lexus didn’t announce plans to bring the EV to the U. S ., and it’ s unlikely to do so. The UX 300 e is based on the Lexus says that the car offers four levels of brake regeneration that are controlled by paddle shifters.

Lexus hasn’t revealed any performance figures but, due to the instant power delivery of electric powertrains, it’s highly likely that the UX 300e will be quicker off the line than the hybrid model. The latter takes 8.5 seconds to get from 0-62mph, and the electric model should crack the sprint in six to seven seconds.

Fast-charging access will be included, hopefully as standard, so you’ll be able to plug into a DC charger at up to 50kW. Recharging to 80% should take around 40 minutes, or you can plug in to a 6.6kW charger if no 50kW unit is nearby - although it’d take much longer to recharge using the less powerful charger.

Like the hybrid Lexus UX SUV, you’ll be able to adjust the levels of brake regeneration using the paddles behind the steering wheel. In its top setting, you’ll be able to drive the UX 300e on just one pedal, as the car will slow itself down when you take your foot off the accelerator. A selection of driving modes can be toggled to change the character of the car and the power delivery.

Lexus introduced its first battery electric vehicle (BEV), the UX 300 e , at the 2019 Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in China. The Lexus UX 300 e is scheduled to go on sale in the Chinese and European markets in 2020, and in Japan early in 2021 . The first EV from Lexus

The electric Lexus made its debut on Friday at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, and basically Paddle shifters actually control regenerative braking with four different modes (like we saw on the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime) and drivers will hear a Lexus UX 300 e is brand ' s first EV, but not for US.

UK specs are still unconfirmed but the electric Lexus will be quite well-equipped with adaptive cruise control, a digital instrument cluster and an infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay connectivity. From Lexus’ pictures, we can see that the car will also come with a companion app; this will allow you to check the amount of charge in the car from your phone, and you should be able to pre-set the climate control remotely too.

The batteries are fitted underneath the floor of the car, which should mean that passenger space isn’t compromised too much. Boot space may suffer, though, and the Lexus UX has a small boot anyway.

As the Lexus UX sits on the same ‘TNGA’ platform as the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Prius and Toyota C-HR, it could mean that Toyota will release fully electric versions of its best-selling models.
