Comments

Only for one test, the vehicle exceeded Green NCAP's lower threshold and scored less than the possible maximum. This test is the WLTC+ CAT, where the Lexus was tested at an ambient temperature of -7°C. Overall, however, the energy efficiency index of 9.7 is still close to the maximum possible to the generally low electricity consumption of the battery electric powertrain.

Comments

Because no greenhouse gases are emitted at the tailpipe of an all-electric vehicle, the UX 300e scores maximum points in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

The Lexus UX 300e is a pure electric crossover with an electric motor providing 150 kW of power and 300 Nm of torque, offering a dynamic driving performance. For the time being, Green NCAP assesses vehicles based only on what is emitted at the tailpipe, so the Lexus UX 300e gets the maximum points in two out of the three areas of the assessment - Clean Air and Greenhouse Gases - as local emissions of these are zero. With regard to the Energy Efficiency Index, the vehicle passed almost all of Green NCAP's tests with maximum points and, overall, the car comfortably achieves 5 stars. A higher driving range would improve the vehicle's functionality and user experience, but for those wishing to minimize their environmental impact, the Lexus 300e offers an excellent choice.
