In Japan, the queue of buyers for the new generation Lexus LX full-size frame SUV has reached four years. Recall that sales of new items in the domestic Japanese market started on January 12, 2022. The model is available in LX600, LX600 Executive and LX600 Offroad versions, and costs from 12.5 million to 18 million yen. The demand for the car significantly exceeds the supply.
Thus, the situation with the new LX repeated the situation with the platform Toyota Land Cruiser 300, the shipment of which buyers in Japan also have to wait up to four years.
Sales of the new generation Lexus NX crossover in the Land of the Rising Sun also started very successfully – the turn is up to one year.
However, Toyota Motor (which owns the Lexus brand) says that the waiting period may be reduced in the future – the company intends to increase the production of popular models, but for now is forced to build production plans taking into account the shortage of electronic components, which is caused by a global shortage of microchips.
