Complementing the inclusion of the Encore Platinum owner benefits program as standard, UX 300e owners will also be provided with charging solutions that ensure a smooth and flexible driving experience.
With a complimentary, professionally installed AC home charger, owners can rest while the UX 300e charges overnight2. From empty, the high-capacity lithium-ion battery fully charges in about 6.5 hours using an AC charger8, that can deliver a 360km9 driving range in certain driving conditions.
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 warranty2.
Lexus is further offering complimentary access to Chargefox high-speed DC charging3, 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 energy.
The UX 300e takes about 80 minutes to charge from empty using a DC charger8.
Reflecting the integrated approach to Lexus ownership and usability, Chargefox public recharging locations3 can be found via the Lexus App along with other Encore and Encore Platinum owner benefits.
Lexus Australia Chief Executive Scott Thompson said the luxury lifestyle brand was focused on delivering leading ownership solutions timed for the launch of the first Lexus BEV, the UX 300e.
"Lexus is renowned for leading ownership and guided by the Japanese hospitality art of omotenashi to ensure that we anticipate customer needs, appreciate all the finer details and develop authentic relationships with them," Mr Thompson said.
"Inspired by our unique heritage and those key principles, we listened closely to Lexus customers and committed to taking our Encore Platinum owner benefits program to the next level for the UX 300e - and there is still more to come."
The leading Encore owner benefits program was expanded in 2020 with the new Encore Platinum flagship tier. As Lexus maintained its commitment to frequent and further updates of the program, expansion of the Lexus on Demand program to New Zealand followed in 2021.
The expansion of Encore Platinum owner benefits for the UX 300e is the third expansion of the program in fewer than three years, and will be followed by a further announcement at the launch of the first Lexus BEV later this month.
