If you’re thinking about leasing a Lexus electric car, the UX 300e is well worth a look. As the brand’s first-ever fully electric vehicle, the UX 300e features the typical Lexus values of striking design and top-drawer quality. It also majors on comfort both for short and long drives, and is very well-equipped as standard.
Key Lexus UX highlights
The Lexus UX is built at the world-famous Kyushu plant in Japan, alongside some of the brand’s most iconic models such as the RX and RZ. All hybrid and electric models and the entire ‘Lexus Electrified’ range have been built here, so precision of finish, reliability and attention-to-detail are guaranteed.
It also doesn’t look like an electric car, so it’s great if you want to stay under the radar but still want the class of a Lexus.
Comfort and quietness are the order of the day, too - it’s smooth and effortlessly relaxing. It’s also very safe, with a variety of assist systems and the maximum five star Euro NCAP crash test rating.
We’d recommend opting for the Premium Plus Pack which gives you leather seats that are heated and ventilated in the front, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and wireless phone charging. Top-spec Takumi models come with all the bells and whistles including an uprated infotainment system, premium sound, a sunroof and a head-up display.
Lexus UX performance & range
The UX 300e gets up to 62mph in 7.5 seconds and can travel up to 195 miles on a single charge. That’ll be fast and far enough for most needs, but the Lexus RZ is available for those who demand more range and performance.
It’s worth keeping in mind that the UX 300e uses a CHAdeMO charging socket rather than the more common CCS, but these are supported on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charging network. A charge from 0-80% takes around 50 minutes.
Similar models to the Lexus UX
When it comes to EV leasing, the UX range by Lexus isn’t your only choice. Volvo’s XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is the performance-focused alternative and has a greater range of up to 312 miles. You could also consider the Mercedes-Benz EQA and BMW iX1 which are similar in size.

We've made leasing an electric car easier than ever
With its striking design and excellent comfort, the Lexus UX300e is an appealing small electric luxury car. Embodying the renowned luxury and craftsmanship of the Lexus brand, the UX features high-quality materials, refined finishes, and attention to detail, alongside a premium driving experience. Leasing rather than buying can also save you money, particularly in the short term due to the much lower initial outlay.
When you lease your Lexus UX through GRIDSERVE Car Leasing, you can experience outstanding customer care, and we'll ensure the car is delivered on a day that suits you. As part of the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, we provide a vast network of EV chargers throughout the UK, including Electric Hubs, Electric Super Hubs, and Electric Forecourts. Our commitment to continuous improvement means that our chargers are regularly upgraded, and we consistently install new high-powered chargers to ensure a fast and convenient charging experience, allowing you to get back on the road swiftly and effortlessly.
The WLTP range of the UX model is set at 195 miles on a single charge, though the exact mileage you’ll get from your car will depend on a range of factors, which include how you drive, weather conditions in the area, the payload of the car, tyre pressure, use of the air con and more.
GRIDSERVE offers the flexibility to select the annual mileage that best suits your needs when you lease a UX vehicle. You have a range of mileage options available, starting from a minimum standard of 5,000 miles and extending up to a maximum of 30,000 miles. The comprehensive mileage choices include: 5,000, 8,000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, 25,000, or 30,000 miles.
By providing these various mileage options, GRIDSERVE allows you to tailor your lease agreement to match your anticipated driving requirements.
The cost of leasing a Lexus UX electric car will be determined by several factors. These include the duration of the lease, the chosen annual mileage limit, whether it's a personal or business lease, the initial rental payment period, and the specific variant of the UX selected.
Prices may vary over time, so it is advisable to regularly check for updates on the latest pricing for the UX model that matches your preferences.
