NX200 FWD or AWD must be really slow and so it is interesting to see the 0-100km/h is not published and it is probably fine as the targeted customers probably do not care about this performance figure.
Another observation: on this particular spec page, they use the picture of LF-NX instead of the picture of production NX. Note the side mirrors are different.
NX200 info is probably not known yet.... NX300h info was published earlier on other sites. Once full specs are available, they will be published on all of their sites, same as every other car they have.

^^^Sweet! Finally an official use for that cubby (sunglass holder), and a mirror to boot!
That is most definitely how I'll use it.
The sunglasses holder in my current car is too small to really fit them, so I use the center console cupholder where coffee always ends up getting on them. Finally a solution to my first world problem.
Global launch for the Canadian market is tomorrow. Don't expect to hear or see anything official until July 7...
This is accurate. In fact, MotorTrend posted via Instagram that they will be able to shed their driving comments on the NX July 6th! Look at the plate of the NX that was driven, it's a BC plate and the "Caution bears" sign is also indicative - consistent with your discovery of the launch for the press in Whistler, BC.

Australia targeting price to undercut German competitors. What's uncharacteristic for Lexus is the hybrid will likely be the less expensive model over the Turbo. This is the case in France, and Australia is indicating the same.
The Lexus NX will undercut its direct German rivals with a starting price in the $55-60,000 bracket, though the company says there are no plans to build an SUV any smaller.
Lexus’s smallest SUV has made its international launch in Canada this week ahead of hitting local showrooms in November, when it will take on the likes of the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
Lexus Australia is still finalising pricing and specifications for the new NX but provided some indicative information in Canada to Australian media.
“Our expectation [with NX] is to be very competitive, expect to attract a whole new range of buyers to the brand,” said Lexus Australia boss Sean Hanley. “I think it will sit somewhere in our top two or top three best-selling vehicles. IS will remain our top volume car, then somewhere RX then NX.
“In terms of pricing I’d expect us to be somewhere around the $55-60K mark.”
That would place the Lexus NX below the similarly sized BMW X3, which is priced from $60,900, and the Audi Q5, which costs from $63,600.
Lexus told CarAdvice it currently has no plans to build an SUV any smaller than the NX, despite Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz all offering baby luxury SUVs with the Q3, X1 and GLA respectively.

Lexus Australia has also ruled out the cheapest NX available, an NX200 with a normally aspirated 2.0-litre petrol engine. The company believes the lower-performance model doesn’t suit our market.
“[The NX] is kind of unique like the RX,” said Hanley. “It sits in the middle, sits in the sweetspot – somewhere between small and compact, so across a number of competitors.
“[The German brands] have a different [SUV] strategy. We’ll do it our way. The entry price is not necessarily key to volume.”
Hanley admitted the new NX could partially cannibalise sales of the larger RX SUV that is also a five-seater.
“I think there will be some leakage of RX sales, particularly RX270 which was brought in to fill a gap [between X5 and X3]. But the NX will bring incremental sales increase for us.”
The Lexus NX heralds the introduction of the company’s new turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
Lexus Australia says the turbo petrol NX200t is likely to start higher than the alternative NX model, the petrol-electric NX300h – following the ES sedan in going against the company’s usual pricing structure and having a hybrid as the base model.
Hanley says this is because it is better able to amortise costs now that hybrid is now a mainstream technology used across a large number of vehicles, and also that the turbo petrol is the choice for performance.
The Lexus NX300h and Lexus NX200t will be available in three trim grades: Luxury, F Sport and Sport Luxury. The entry-level Luxury will come in a choice of front-wheel drive or part-time all-wheel drive.
Both the F Sport and Sport Luxury will be offered only with the part-time all-wheel drive system that is borrowed from the Toyota RAV4 – the car on which the NX is “loosely” based.
Standard features for all NX models are likely to include 18-inch alloy wheels, rear view camera, parking sensors, 10-speaker audio, aluminium roof rails, and LED low beam headlights.
F Sport models are also set to come with adjustable suspension in addition to standard paddleshift levers.
Johnson Lexus in Raleigh, NC is advertising the cars used at the USGA for sale. Called and talked with salesman and he stated that the NX was not available and they have been told in the fall for shipments. FWIW
