Discover an evolution of the first Lexus battery EV model, with over 40% extra cruising distance, more safety functions, advanced technology and a deeper driving experience.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE, ENHANCED SAFETY

A PIONEER OF ELECTRIFICATION

The new UX300e is an evolution of Lexus’ first battery electric vehicle (BEV) production model. The car has been highly acclaimed for its distinctive design as an urban compact crossover and its excellent handling body size, as well as for its high-quality driving and quietness only a BEV can offer. The latest model delivers a cruising range extended by more than 40% to 450 km and an energy efficiency of 166.7 Wh/km.

A DEEPER DRIVING EXPERIENCE

The car has a seamless connection between deceleration, steering, and acceleration in all driving situations. Body rigidity in the new UX300e has been strengthened by adding 20 spot welding points. A low centre of gravity results from the under-floor placement of the battery pack, performance dampers installed as standard in the rear, and the optimal EPS and absorbers tuning. The result is a sharp and sophisticated ride with improved quality, directness and response.

LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM +

The "pre-crash safety" function, which detects bicyclists in the daytime and pedestrians at night, has been expanded to include detection of oncoming vehicles before turning right at intersections and pedestrians crossing the street when turning right or left. In addition, functions such as emergency steering assist have been added. A curve speed control function decelerates the vehicle in advance according to the size of the curve.

PANORAMIC VIEW MONITOR

The Panoramic View Monitor combines images from cameras mounted on the front, rear, left and right sides of the vehicle and displays them on the centre display. A new under-floor transparency display function has been added to assist the driver in understanding the road surface conditions below the vehicle and the position of the tyres, based on a composition of previously photographed road images.
The UX300e has achieved a significant extension of cruising range as a value-enhancing BEV that is tailored to the customer's lifestyle. We will continue to make improvements toward the realisation of a carbon-neutral society.

MORE CONNECTED THAN EVER

The multimedia system and connected services have been revamped. In addition to a larger and higher-resolution 12.3-inch touch display, the system is equipped with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. A connected navigation system uses map information on the cloud to obtain traffic information and parking space availability in real time. 

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™* have been set up to use the dedicated functions on in-vehicle displays. Apple CarPlay™ supports Wi-Fi wireless connectivity in addition to the conventional USB connection. A web browser function allows users to view websites through an Internet connection utilising the Data Communication Module (DCM).

By uttering a pre-set activation word (e.g., "Hey Lexus!"), the voice recognition function can be activated without having to operate a switch or stop the music currently playing. In addition, the system can be operated by natural speech as if talking to the car.

Check the car's battery level and cruising range from a smartphone. Also available are services such as remote air conditioning, which allows the driver to activate the air conditioner before getting in the car. "My Car Start Lock," allows the driver to disable the car's EV system from starting for a desired period of time, increasing security when the car is not in use.

Smartphones can be used as a digital key for the new UX300e. In addition to being able to lock/unlock the doors via the smartphone screen, the EV system can be started by pressing the power switch while carrying the smartphone. Several cars can be compatible with the digital key and can be transferred between smartphones. It is easy to lend or borrow vehicles between family members or friends at a distance.
DRIVE WITHOUT COMPROMISE

USABILITY AND QUIETNESS

The shape and switch layout of the instrument panel and console area have been optimised in conjunction with the touch-screen display Two new USB connectors (Type-C) for charging have been added to the front of the console for improved usability. LED lighting on the upper part of the console improves usability.

The under-floor battery functions as a sound barrier, and consideration is also given to wind noise, pebbles, sand, etc. which can be heard due to the absence of engine and transmission noise. In addition, the interior space is comfortably quiet.
