After selling more than 1.8 million hybrids, including 450,000 in Europe, Lexus is introducing in selected European markets its first all-electric model, the Lexus UX 300e (first launched in China earlier this year).

According to the final specs, the WLTP range of UX 300e is 305-315 km (190-196 miles) depending on the version, using a 54.3 kWh battery. One of the most interesting things is that this air-cooled battery is covered by 10-year (or 1,000,000 km / 621,500 miles) warranty including capacity degradation below 70%.

To make the driver's life easier, Lexus has teamed with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS) to offer access to various charging networks, using a single account, RFID-card / app.
