The new UX EV features a cabin inspired by the Japanese architectural concept of ‘engawa’ where the inside and outside are seamlessly connected. This unique approach gives you a better sense of the extremities of this new EV, making it much easier to manoeuvre in tight urban spaces. The cockpit is relaxing and uncluttered, with everything of importance located around you, and all the controls falling naturally to hand (there’s even a clever palm rest on the centre console that has the audio controls built in).
From its dramatic Lexus ‘signature grille’, to the sporty silhouette and 18" alloy wheels, the new UX EV takes a brave new approach to electric car mobility. For a driver-focused environment that feels open yet secure, its luxury cabin is inspired by the Japanese architectural concept of ‘engawa’, where the boundaries between the inside and outside are apparently seamless.
To ensure world-class quality, the UX EV is built at our award-winning Kyushu plant alongside our other electrified vehicles, with production overseen by ‘Takumi’ master craftspeople. Attention to detail is everywhere, from the beautiful hand-sanded paintwork, to the cleanroom assembly of electric motors, to the leather seats that are inspired by the traditional Japanese quilting technique of ‘sashiko’. Before shipping, each UX EV is checked and checked again for perfection.
Driving the new UX 300e, you’ll enjoy both agility and very precise steering. This confident feeling pays tribute to the car’s low centre of gravity combined with the extra rigidity of the reinforced chassis and battery unit.
