    First production Lexus EV to be unveiled on November 22

    Lexus will reveal its first series production electric car, which our sister publication Autocar UK understands will be an electric version of the UX SUV. The Lexus EV will make its debut at the Guangzhou motor show in China on November 22, 2019.

    The Japanese company hasn’t given any concrete details of the EV ahead of the November reveal, but says it is “specifically crafted to suit the needs of audiences in China and in Europe.” However, the machine will be based on the electric Toyota C-HR, a sister crossover to the UX, that is currently offered in the Chinese market. The machine will likely be named the UX Electric.

    Lexus and parent firm Toyota are due to launch three electric models in international markets by the end of 2021. Lexus showcased a dramatic EV concept called the LF-30 at the Tokyo motor show recently, which was intended to preview the general style of its future battery electric cars.

    The LF-30, which is similar in size to the Jaguar I-Pace, uses a new EV architecture being developed by Lexus and Toyota, which is planned to be introduced in international markets from 2022.

    Lexus recently launched the RX 450hL in India – at Rs 99 lakh (ex-showroom), effectively replacing the two-row version of the hybrid SUV with the seven row model.
