Lexus unveils its first production electric vehicle, the UX 300e
Lexus has unveiled an electric version of the UX crossover, which outwardly practically does not differ from the original version..
Despite the absence of significant changes in the design, its filling has changed dramatically. In the UX 300e model, the internal combustion engine is replaced by a power unit with a capacity of 201 hp. and a 54.3 kWh battery. The bracing and shock absorption have also been improved..
The stated capacity figure is low, but the automaker claims there will be enough charge to travel up to 400 km, depending on driving conditions..
Outwardly, the new version can be distinguished from the fuel one only by insignificant details, which include aerodynamic wheels and a smooth bottom, but these are the most noticeable visual changes. On the street, it will be easier to recognize it by the artificial sound of engine noise when driving..
The first electric cars Lexus UX 300e will go on sale in 2020 in the Chinese market, and from 2021 in the European.
