Lexus UX 300e Unveiled In China Is Firm’s First Production EV

Lexus unveiled its first production, fully-electric vehicle in China

  • New Lexus UX 300e offers 400 kilometres of range
  • Electric motor develops 201 horsepower
  • Will go on sale in China next year and Europe in 2021

Lexus quietly unveiled its first production electric vehicle yesterday at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China, the Lexus UX 300e.

While the world’s attention was turned to southern California for the Tesla Cybertruck unveiling, Lexus was taking the wraps off of its first production EV in China.

The Japanese luxury automaker has had plenty of plug-in hybrid models over the years and quite a few electric vehicle concepts, but this is the first EV headed for production from Lexus.

The Lexus UX 300e is an electrified version of the Lexus UX we currently have on sale in North America with the same styling and same interior components. The difference is that instead of a four-cylinder engine or a hybrid powertrain like we can get here, the engine powering the UX 300e is fully electric.

Powering the front axle, the motor delivers 201 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque and gets its energy from a 54.3-kWh battery that provides 250 miles, or 400 kilometres of range.

For now, there’s no indication that the Lexus UX 300e will come to North America. It will go on sale in China in 2020 and Europe in 2021.
