The Lexus UX 300e will be priced from around £43,900 when ordering opens in October.
Lexus’ first all-electric car, deliveries of the UX 300e will begin in March 2021.
£1,000 reservations are already open.
Because prices start from under £50,000, the UX 300e qualifies for the £3,000 government Plug-in Car Grant – the only premium SUV currently to do so.
Two posher option packs are also available, the Premium Plus which should cost from around £47,400 and the Takumi priced from around £53,500.
Lexus will confirm exact prices ahead of orders opening.
Standard equipment is comprehensive, with LED headlights, power front seats and steering wheel adjust, all-round parking sensors, infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Lexus Safety System+ and 17-inch alloys.
Premium Plus adds leather upholstery, heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, keyless go and wireless smartphone charging.
Takumi has a 13-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system, bigger 10.3-inch infotainment screen with sat nav, head-up display, bigger 18-inch alloys and other goodies – but, note, no Plug-in Car Grant saving.
With a 54.3kWh battery, the Lexus UX 300e is expected to offer a driving range of 196 miles, while a 150kW (201hp) electric motor delivers 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds.
Lexus isn’t giving up on hybrids though, added UK director Ewan Shepherd. “We will continue to develop the performance of our self-charging hybrid technology alongside new, all-electric vehicles led by the UX 300e.”
