For now, the Japanese car manufacturer hasn’t offered to many info about the car but we do have some details for you.
According to Lexus, the new UX 300e has some new aerodynamic wheels, it sits 20 mm closer to the ground and features redesigned underbody covers.
Instead of the conventional power unit, Lexus UX 300e has a front mounted electric motor mounted on the front. It has 201 horsepower and 300 Nm peak of torque. The battery pack is 54.3 kWh and according to Lexus this amount of energy will offer about 400 kilometers of range based on the NEDC cycle (the WLTP and EPA will follow soon).
