Lexus Australia has confirmed pricing and final components in its leading ownership package for the new UX 300e battery electric vehicle (BEV), which starts from $74,0001
and combines a five-year vehicle warranty2
with a 10-year battery guarantee3
With Lexus hybrid-electric customers showing strong interest in the first Lexus BEV, the UX 300e Luxury starts within $4,5001
of the acclaimed hybrid-electric UX 250h F Sport with Enhancement Pack 2 - affording Lexus customers the luxury of choice with two leading, incredibly efficient powertrain options.
The UX 300e Sports Luxury becomes the new Lexus UX flagship priced from $81,0001
, featuring maximum luxury and technology.
In addition to the five-year, unlimited kilometre vehicle warranty, Lexus is providing a 10-year, unlimited kilometre assurance period for the high-voltage battery with a required, complimentary BEV system health check each year after the fifth year3
, in accordance with Lexus specifications.
The battery is also covered for up to 10 years or 160,000km (whichever comes first) if the energy storage capacity falls below 70 per cent4
, for further peace of mind (subject to annual EV High Voltage system health check).
Capped-price servicing costs $295 (including GST) for each of the first five annual or 15,000km services5
- rounding out a leading ownership package that includes the long-range warranty, a three-year Encore Platinum membership6
, a complimentary home charger with installation7
and three-year complimentary on-road recharging8
The Encore Platinum owner benefits program furthers the unmatched Lexus ownership experience for members. The complimentary three-year subscription is standard on the UX 300e, the LX flagship SUV, LC sports car and LS flagship sedan.
Encore Platinum includes the pioneering Lexus on Demand, which allows members to borrow another Lexus up to four times over the subscription period, for up to eight days at a time9
Accessed via the Lexus App, Encore Platinum members can book an LS sedan, LC coupe or LX SUV at either a range of nationwide Lexus dealerships, or at the Qantas valet of Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth airports, or even at Auckland or Queenstown in New Zealand9
The UX 300e will also be added as an available vehicle for existing Encore Platinum members, allowing them to sample the first Lexus BEV.
Valet parking at participating shopping centres and a range of incredible event experiences are also included for UX 300e customers as part of Encore Platinum.
With a complimentary, professionally installed AC home charger, owners can rest while the UX 300e charges overnight7
. From empty, the high-capacity lithium-ion battery fully charges in about 6.5 hours using an AC charger10
Lexus will also include two complimentary charging cables for AC charging, so owners are never far from a full charge.
UX 300e owners also have the option to upgrade to a home charger featuring additional scope of functionality, with a touch-display, Wi-Fi and Ethernet compatibility, smartphone app connectivity, and dynamic load management - which can avoid blackouts and surprise energy bills, measuring a home's live energy usage and automatically adjusting the charge to the UX 300e in harmony with the local grid.
Each charger is delivered and fitted courtesy of leading BEV infrastructure specialist, JetCharge, and includes a comprehensive six-year warranty7
Lexus is further offering complimentary access to Chargefox high-speed DC charging, Australia's largest public recharging network with over 1,400 plug-in outlets at 770 charging stations across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania - all powered by renewable energy8
Charging locations have been seamlessly integrated into the Lexus App, and the UX 300e takes about 80 minutes to charge from empty using a DC charger10
In addition to five years of capped price servicing, Lexus includes five years of coverage for the above-and-beyond DriveCare roadside assistance package, which includes around-the-clock breakdown assistance, towing, entry assistance, coverage for one-way metropolitan taxi fares up to $150 and more11
Lexus Australia Chief Executive Scott Thompson said the Lexus team is committed to delivering the UX 300e with impressive pricing and the most comprehensive ownership standard among BEVs.
"Lexus listened closely to our loyal owners, ensuring that luxury compact SUV customers are put first with an all-encompassing ownership package designed to make the UX 300e both great to own and fun to drive," Mr Thompson said.
"Our comprehensive ecosystem of customer care and owner benefits now includes an exceptional warranty, complete servicing, effortless recharging - plus the Encore Platinum owner benefits program complete with the pioneering Lexus on Demand."
