Lexus UX 300e AWD Sports Luxury 2022 Review

Lexus UX 300e – Lexus UX comes in choice of either petrol, hybrid petrol or electric variants. Today we are chatting about the fully electric version version.

The Lexus UX is a stylish compact urban based SUV that has the full array of safety features. Inside it is typically Lexus, which means luxurious and well laid out. Its comfortable more for two people but that’s probably the typical number anyway.


Fit and finish is excellent and heated seats are comfortable. The driver instruments and central screen easy to read but I’m not a fan of the mouse style touch pad, for the controls for the central screen.

Recharging the  is simple and relatively quick, but as with all EVs you need a garage or somewhere undercover overnight and that’s a problem for a lot of people.

One thing I noticed was at full charge the range was only 250km or so and while my daily drive is around 50-80km and well covered, a weekend trip requires a bit of planning.

Priced from around $81,000 plus the usual costs its expensive when you consider that the Hybrid is some $21,000 cheaper along with excellent economy. It’s a high price to pay for a fully electric car.
