The Lexus UX 300e Will Come With a 10-year, 1 Million Kilometer Warranty

With a million-kilometer warranty, Lexus wants you to have confidence in their first EV, the UX 300e  


  • This is the first electric Lexus ever.

  • Range is an estimated 400km.

  • Single motor, FWD.


It’s still strange for many to learn that the Lexus UX 300e will be Toyota’s luxury brand’s first-ever electric vehicle. For 15 years, Lexus has provided world markets with hybrid vehicles, and only later this year will they introduce their first-ever EV.

The Lexus UX is a popular compact urban EV and will be fitted with a 54.3-kilowatt-hour high-capacity battery in its structure. This battery pack is rated for 400 km of range as per the NEDC cycle, or the equivalent of over 300 km in the WLTP cycle. The Lexus UX 300e will be motivated by a 150 kW (204 DIN hp) electric motor/generator over the front wheels which is enough power to send the UX 300e to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds.

The big news is that Lexus includes a 10-year (or 1,000,000 km) warranty. The goal behind such coverage is simple. Pascal Ruch, Head of Lexus Europe, said: “Our acknowledged leadership in electrification, coupled with this 10-year warranty commitment, brings a new level of reassurance to customers opting for a BEV in this segment.”
