Al-Futtaim Lexus Launches the Luxury Hybrid UX 300h with Powerful Green Credentials

UX 300h strengthens the luxury hybrid SUV range offered by Al-Futtaim Lexus, which also includes the RXh and NXh

Al-Futtaim Lexus has expanded its fleet of luxury hybrid vehicles with the addition of the stylish, sporty and highly efficient 2024 Lexus UX 300h. A new powertrain and badge have arrived with the new UX 300h, and the versatile compact crossover now boasts 196 total system horsepower.

A new hybrid transaxle and lightweight lithium-ion battery contribute to the higher output with the 2024 UX 300h, providing more responsive performance.

Infused with dynamic attitude, the Lexus UX 300h is engineered to deliver quick and engaging driving with a Lexus-smooth demeanour. The 2024 model year also sees updated technology and safety features, with Sonic Copper being added as an exterior colour option.

Commenting on the launch of the Lexus UX 300h, Jacques Brent, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Lexus, said: “Lexus pioneered the luxury hybrid SUV segment and has maintained its leadership in this space over the decades.

"The introduction of the Lexus UX 300h to our luxury hybrid product range in the United Arab Emirates brings even more choice for sustainable, low-emissions motoring to our customers.

"This stylish, compact and greener SUV is the perfect choice for drivers who want Lexus luxury and quality with the Omotenashi ownership experience at an accessible price point, and we are extremely excited to share it with our customers in the Emirates."

Fifth Generation Hybrid System

The 2024 UX 300h becomes the first Lexus vehicle powered by the fifth-generation Lexus Hybrid System, which pairs the inline four-cylinder 2.0-liter gas engine with two motor-generators through a planetary-type continuously variable transmission.

The engine, working in concert with the electric motor, assures responsive performance, while exemplary energy efficiency is achieved by using both electric motors to charge a compact and lightweight lithium-ion battery.

The 60-cell battery is located under the rear seat, helping with passenger comfort and storage capacity. This advanced hybrid system results in a manufacturer-estimated combined 24km/L fuel consumption rating.

For 2024, shift-by-wire technology has also been introduced on the UX 300h, converting shift operations into electrical signals. With no mechanical connections, the setup helps enable a quicker and more seamless shifting experience.

The 2024 UX 300h boasts an improved manufacturer-estimated 0-100km/h acceleration time of 8.0 seconds.
