“This EV is nicely finished, just about practical enough for most buyers’ needs, and particularly refined. Lexus’s engineers deserve praise for how they’ve integrated recuperation into the brake set-up”.

DRIVING ELECTRIC

“The UX is a great first all-electric effort from Lexus – its powertrain is punchy and well engineered, and complements the UX's inherent refinement, comfort and build quality nicely, helping make the car even more relaxing to drive. A near-200-mile range should be enough for most intended users, and there's just enough space for the car to be useful for smaller families”.

CAR ENTHUSIAST

“Lexus has stolen a march on its premium rivals in this sector and it hasn't wasted this golden opportunity, turning in a thoroughly excellent product in the form of the UX 300e to set the standards in a class which is sure to grow in size very quickly”.

“The UX 300e is extremely quiet, even for a pure EV, with even the tyres, glass and wheel arch liners having been tweaked to damp out excess unwanted noise, and it shows. It might be a bit quirky for some, but quiet EV power really suits the Lexus vibe”.

FLEET WORLD

“The UX is a good electric car with a strong business case made without re-writing the rule book, unlike its competition. By not fitting a massive battery Lexus has managed to find a great compromise between having a decent range while not impacting driving dynamics too much.
Unexpectedly, the Lexus is capable of remarkable economy thanks to its efficient powertrain and variable regenerative braking. During our test, we observed an impressive average of 5.1 miles per kilowatt-hour. By this measure the UX 300e should easily be capable of more range than its official WLTP figure suggests – at least at non-motorway speeds."

“It’s powerful enough, range is plentiful enough and you’re treated to a small and fashionable crossover with a supremely well put-together interior”.
