Toyota Motor Corp.’s Lexus unit will take the wraps off its first series production electric car later this month at the Guangzhou auto show in China.

The vehicle will debut in China and Europe a few years from now. Toyota and Lexus plan to launch 10 EVs worldwide by 2025, including three within the next two years.

Media reports speculate that the Lexus EV will be based on Toyota’s UX compact crossover vehicle and electric variant of the C-HR sold in China. Lexus trademarked the name UX 300e last year.

Separately, the carmaker unveiled the LF-30 electric concept car (pictured) at last month’s Tokyo auto show. That vehicle is said to preview the styling of future Lexus EVs.
