Default NX Global Release dates

I think I saw a post where it was mentioned that the Japanese release date was July 29th. Can that be confirmed? Any other release dates yet? Is the USA release still around Dec?

As much as I know, it starts shipping in Europe in October... so Japanese production should have started by now. NX is not officially published on Lexus.jp, so maybe July 29th is when they start taking orders or have them in showrooms? Not sure.

I was told by a friend in Japan who actually has placed a pre-order on NX and he said previously that his salesman told him the official release date for NX in Japan is July 29.

And Lexus Japan has already been accepting domestic orders on NX for more than a month now.

Hopefully your friend can share his experience and pics of his NX like he has before (if it's the same friend)!

i know they have had preview events in all the dealers, but it is weird that they didnt publish official info.

That's a week or two prior to the slated launch. It could very well be. I'm hoping my dealer gets it a little early too.

Now the official info is up on Lexus.jp today.

http://lexus.jp/models/nx/index.html

And the test drive impression organized by Lexus Japan is here

http://lexus.jp/models/nx/styles/?ad...&wapr=53d791f5

The people are from different industries - from the left to right on the web page

--- home electronics company founder/design engineer (whose company has Red Dot design award winning product in 2012)

--- movie director/screenwriter

--- automotive journalist(mechanical engineering background, Japan Car of the Year panel committee member, TV show host, car magazine/web/fashion magazine, etc)

NX is clearly targeted as a stylish vehicle with strong design elements for people in the age of 30-40 in Japan.

Japanese dealer options -

http://lexus.jp/models/nx/specificat...ior/index.html

Some options are as usual and are available in other Lexus vehicles except the following which I find it interesting ---

カップホルダーイルミネーション -- cupholder illumination


パームレスト -- palm rest -- you can switch to a different colour

カップホルダープレート- cupholder bottom metal plate

And they start selling UV cut/tinted windw film -- IR (赤外線) カットフィルム

Spoke with a dealer in Sydney Australia, and they'll have a vehicle for test drive in a week's time. Aiming for October release of the hybrid first. Apparently the first two month's stock of the hybrid is already pre-sold.
