You'll need to think in terms of around £40,000 for a well specified UX 300e after government grant deduction; the asking price before grant deduction is £43,900. Customers can also specify either of two option packs: Premium Plus, taking the anticipated price to £47,400, and Takumi, at £53,500. All of which reminds us that full-EVs remain pricey purchases, even in the compact segment. Still, you get quite a lot of kit for that.
Key standard features include the Lexus Safety System+ package, Bi-LED headlights with Automatic High Beam, heated, power-adjustable front seats, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, illuminated entry, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), power steering wheel adjustment, automatic wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels and aluminium roof rails.
Additional items provided in the Premium Plus Pack include smooth leather seat upholstery, heated steering wheel, additional ventilation function on the front seats, heated outer rear seats, smart keyless entry, a wireless smartphone charger, a card key and illuminated door handles with puddle lights.
The Takumi Pack adds even more technically advanced equipment, including a 13-speaker Mark Levinson Surround Sound audio system, Lexus Navigation with 10.3-inch display, a power-operated tailgate with hands-free function, a 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor, a head-up display, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, triple-eye LED headlights with an Adaptive High-beam System, a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with auto brake.
