Lexus have revealed the mildly updated version of their first all-electric crossover offering, the UX 300e. The Japanese carmaker claims the new UX 300e offers 40% more range than before.

The Lexus UX 300e now comes with a bigger 72.8kWh battery pack, replacing the smaller 54.4kWh unit in the current model. The bigger battery pack is claimed to offer a range of 450km on a single charge. It is worth mentioning that the UX 300e continues to use the CHAdeMO charging technology that uses a different charging port over the more common CCS-2 charging.

The incorporation of the bigger infotainment has also resulted in a revised dashboard layout. Additionally, the updated UX 300e also offers Type-C charging ports and wireless charging.
