Introduction

What Car? says...

The Lexus UX 300e looks, on paper, like a car destined for success. After all, it’s a posh all-electric SUV crossover, and it doesn’t get more ‘in vogue’ than that.

Before we begin this review, though, we must point out that Lexus doesn’t see the UX 300e as a rival for other electric SUVs such as the Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia e-Niro, Peugeot e-2008 or even the VW ID.4. As the “only all-electric crossover SUV in the premium segment”, Lexus would prefer you to view the UX as a natural rival to the Tesla Model 3, Polestar 2 and Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

Over the next few pages of this Lexus UX300e review, we’ll be exploring more than just aesthetics. We’ll be investigating what it’s like to drive, how plush and spacious it is, plus how much it’ll cost you to buy and run. We'll also let you know whether it can compete with the best electric SUVs.

Don’t forget, whichever electric car you settle on, you could save a packet on the make and model you decide to buy using the free What Car? New Car Buying service, where you'll find lots of great new Lexus deals.
