Lexus has revealed its first all-electric production car, the UX 300e, at the Guangzhou motor show in China.
Scheduled to go on sale in Europe next year and in Japan in early 2021, the EV is claimed to generate 201 bhp and torque of 221 lbs, while delivering a driving range of “around 250 miles”.
The UX 300e takes about 50 minutes for quick charging and about seven hours for household AC charging, from empty.
Externally, Lexus has carried over the styling and functionality of its UX crossover to the new EV with the addition of more aerodynamic efficient wheel designs and an underbody cover.
Although built on Toyota’s GA-C platform under the skin, the UX 300e benefits from additional bracing and optimisation of shock absorber damping force to the match the dynamic changes that come with electrification.
