Global vehicle demand, supply chain disruptions and parts shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting the production and delivery time of new Lexus vehicles. Read the frequently asked questions to learn more or contact your preferred Lexus Dealer.

Thrilling, Electrified Performance

The UX 300e boasts the high performance characteristics of a Lexus Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) - linear acceleration, dynamic handling and quiet operation - to create a new generation of Lexus driving pleasure.

The lightweight motor and high-capacity battery replace a petrol vehicle's engine and fuel tank, resulting in a lower centre of gravity. This creates seamless acceleration, responsiveness and manoeuvrability.

The motor, inverter, transaxle and high-capacity battery contribute to smooth, powerful acceleration responsiveness and performance. The newly developed BEV system is combined with an over-charging prevention system and a multi-monitoring safety net to detect any possible electrical problems. While braking, the electric motor is activated as a generator to convert the moving vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity to charge the battery. The intuitive high-capacity battery works within the advanced BEV system to control use of the air conditioning, the battery temperature for reliable operation in extreme conditions, and to recover power from regenerative braking.

Acceleration Sound Control (ASC)

Acceleration Sound Control (ASC)

Acceleration Sound Control (ASC) highlights the BEV human-centred approach to driving. Because the BEV has no engine and transmission, there is no sound when accelerating to communicate a sense of speed. To provide aural feedback to the driver when they accelerate, the ASC generates an audible motor drive sound. While cruising at a consistent speed, the sound drops away to provide an exceptionally quiet cabin. ASC can also be switched off.

An even quieter drive

An even quieter drive

With insulation fitted around the tyres, fender panels and the electric motor unit, you can experience all the power of the UX 300e, minus the noise. The Sports Luxury grade moves refinement to a new level, with acoustic front-side glass that reduces wind noise and results in an exceptionally quiet cabin.

More Power

More Power

The electric motor delivers 150kW of power and 300Nm of instant torque, and can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in just 7.5 seconds. The BEV system is designed so that the motor's powerful low speed torque is maximised to deliver the highly responsive, smooth and controlled acceleration depending on the driving conditions. The system utilises a low throttle for inner city driving, prioritising the controllability of the vehicle's speed. If the driver requires continuous acceleration to merge onto a highway, the mid-to-high throttle is engaged.  Everyday driving has been even smoother with the effortless acceleration and harnessing of electric power.

The lithium-ion battery package is strategically placed under the vehicle floor, lowering the centre of gravity by such a degree that it is comparable to that of a sports coupe. With optimal front/rear weight distribution achieved, accelerating, cornering and braking is seamless.  The front-mounted electric motor sits lower in the engine bay, and weighs approximately half that of a conventional petrol engine.

Fine tuned front and rear suspension

Fine tuned front and rear suspension

For ride comfort and a high level of handling stability, the UX 300e features an exclusive front and rear suspension system. With front and rear performance dampers, a stabiliser bar and shock absorber tuning specific to the 17 and 18-inch wheels, the system supports steering response and contributes to a feeling of stability.

Drive Mode Select

Drive Mode Select

Drive Mode Select provides integrated control of multiple systems to let you directly experience the enhanced driving performance characteristics of the motor and quick increase in initial torque. You can select and change between three modes: Eco for energy efficient driving; Normal for balanced driving performance with energy efficiency; and Sport for nimble driving with enhanced steering feel and acceleration response.

Paddle shift switches on the steering wheel enable the driver to switch between four levels of deceleration to suit their natural driving style, whether it be in frequent stop-and-go city driving or on winding roads. The regenerative braking contributes to superior battery efficiency and driving range. The driver can view real-time output and regeneration status of the BEV system all from the Driver Display. Available in both Luxury and Sports Luxury grades.
