What Car? says...
The Lexus UX300e 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 UX300e 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.
