HOW ALL-ELECTRIC WORKS

Discover a new world of Lexus electric, where charging is effortless and your car is blissfully powered beyond the next horizon.

RELAX AND RECHARGE

 

Simply plug into your wall at home or pull over at a public charging station. Discover the ways to charge a Lexus and how long it takes to top up a battery.

 

RAPID DC CHARGING

 51 mins

Estimated charging time 5-80% battery DC*

The accelerated increase in charging stations means it is easier than ever to keep your car going when on the move. The speed of charge depends largely on the power of the unit. A 50kW unit can charge some models up to 80% in as little as 30 minutes. Fast charging points (7-22kW) can fully recharge some models in 3-4 hours. The majority of public points are fast chargers.

Feel confident on any trip knowing that a network of rapid charging stations across Europe means energy is just a short drive away. Even better, your car will find the station for you and tell you when you’re ready to continue.

It’s simple. Enter your destination on the touchscreen and Trip Planner will plot your route to the nearest charging station.

Arrive at the station and enjoy a coffee as your battery recharges in minutes, not hours.

Your Lexus app says you’re ready to continue. Get ready for the next stage of your journey.

Currently there are over 150,000 charging points in the EU and this should increase to 2 million within 5 years. While some public charging points provide ‘open access’, meaning use is free, the majority belong to network providers so you may need a card or mobile app.

 

AC CHARGING AT HOME

 8 hrs 2 mins

Estimated charging time 0 - 100% battery AC*

Easy to install at home, the Lexus Wallbox will fully charge your car in just over 8 hours. Using Lexus Link you’ll discover clever features like a maximum charge setting that enables owners living at the top of a hill to make use of regenerative charging after leaving home.

It is advised that you hire a professional engineer to install your home charger and Lexus will organise a trusted partner to carry out the work. For peace of mind, it will ensure the wiring of the unit is secure and at the required standard.

More power means your battery is replenished more quickly.

Some countries offer grants of up to 75% off the upfront cost of the charger.

Many electricity suppliers offer rates which are cheaper at night time which could reduce your bill.

GO FURTHER WITH CONFIDENCE

 

You can go further than you'd ever think with Lexus electric cars. Get in the driver’s seat and travel from city to city, knowing with confidence that you will reach your destination and beyond.

MAKE YOUR BATTERY GO FURTHER

The already impressive range provided by our all-electric cars can be enhanced with a few simple driving tips that save money and reduce the energy required for your journey.

DRIVE INTELLIGENTLY

To maximise your range, your car will track performance and optimise how you drive. You can also alter driving modes to increase your range. Electric cars require very little maintenance. However, simple things like correct tyre inflation and replacing air filters can extend a battery’s range by several km per charge.

KEEP IT COOL

Cars that spend a lot of time parked in hot conditions can experience faster rates of battery deterioration. For maximum range, use the air conditioning sparingly.

GENTLY DOES IT

Gradual, smooth acceleration enhances the efficiency of any electric car. Avoiding hard acceleration, particularly in heavy traffic, can significantly boost the amount of range you enjoy from each charge.

INNOVATIVE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

LIFETIME SECURITY

The battery powering your Lexus will generally last for the life of the vehicle. Investigations show that many electric cars have around 75% of their battery capacity after 120,000 miles (193,000 km). Others show an even better longevity with 5% loss after 80,000 km and another 5% after 241,000 km. With the average electric car driver only covering about 15,000 km per year, most will never need a new battery.

FULLY COVERED

For a long and trouble-free service life, our batteries feature advanced cooling and heating systems, while durable rubber seals protect them from all forms of water and dust. Lexus is also offering a 10-year (or 1 million km) EV Battery Extended Care scheme on all functional defects of the main battery pack and capacity degradation below 70%, provided that you respect the regular health checks.

NO NEED TO WORRY

You‘re in safe hands - Lexus has already delivered over 1.5 million extremely safe HEVs hybrid EVs and the new Lexus ES 300h Self-Charging Hybrid was named NCAP’s ‘Best-in-class‘ Electric/Hybrid and ‘Best-in-class’ Family car.

RECYCLING MADE SIMPLE

Importantly for the planet, when the UX 300e battery reaches the end of its life span, we have a take-back scheme to ensure it is recycled safely and responsibly. Currently we are retrieving more than 90% of our batteries in Europe through our retailer networks, but our aim is to achieve a 100% take-back rate through all our operations.
