The all-electric Lexus UX 300e embodies the vision of "Lexus Electrified." Even with the new powertrain, the model remains a true Lexus - without compromise. The brand's first electric vehicle combines exceptional craftsmanship with quality, comfort and quietness, as evidenced not only by the hand-shaped "drive-by-wire" selector lever. To ensure the quietest possible ride, Lexus analyzed the noise generated by electric vehicles and responded: special tires and wheel arch linings reduce the noise emitted by stones, grit and water lying on the road. Driving pleasure was also at the top of chief engineer Takashi Watanabe's specifications. The low center of gravity contributes in particular to the dynamic and refined driving experience: In addition to the GA-C platform and its advantages, the Lexus UX 300e benefits from the high-voltage battery located under the vehicle body and the electric motor placed low in the engine compartment. Suspension and steering, as well as parts of the Lexus Driving Dynamics Control system first introduced in the LF-30 Electrified Concept, further maximize driving pleasure.
