The UX comes in two global variants, electric and hybrid. The car is also the smallest offering from the Toyota-owned car maker.

Other features include a heads-up display, cooled/heated front seats, heated steering, a sunroof, a wireless charger, two-zone climate control, and smartphone connectivity.
Depending on the trim and variant of the vehicle, other features that the UX may come with include lane tracing assist and adaptive cruise control, as well as auto high beam and road sign assist.
UX300e, the electric variant of the car, is expected to come with a 54.3kWh battery pack and a claimed range of 300-315 km.

The UX300e is able to accelerate from 0-100kmph in 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 160 kmph.
