The new Lexus UX 300e Highlights
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.
By most people's standards, it might be a very short time, but when your father is Ron Haslam, 'the Rocket', expressing a true interest in motorcycles more seriously at the age of eight may be a little later than expected ... Looking back on his early days in racing, Haslam explains: “I think I was six weeks old when I attended my first Grand Prix. Obviously I don't remember that one ... " But how do you generally recall his longtime fascination with motorcycles? Leon's memories are overlapped by the simple fact that a lot has happened to him during those years. Enough to fill the career of any normal motorcyclist in triplicate. His first bike was a Honda QR50, with which he rode with all the joy and pride that a child of only four years old could muster. Even now, at 38 years old, he is still a long way from ending his passion for motorcycles and racing.
