It should come as no surprise to anyone that new cars are hard to come by these days. Some production was limited due to supply chain issues, many distributors were out of batches, and everyone seemed helpless.
But for Japanese customers looking to buy a new Lexus LX, think again. Wait times have reportedly increased in this part of the world. four years old.
car news The website that points to the brand makes it clear that people who order an LX today may have to wait more than 48 months to buy a new SUV. To quote this site (with the help of Google Translate):
Thank you very much for considering and ordering our vehicle. The LX is very popular not only in Japan but all over the world, we are receiving orders that greatly exceed our production capacity, so we are currently suspending orders.
Regarding the resumption of orders, we will inform you again according to the future production situation. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
OK then. While the 4-year-old indicator is not mentioned in this monologue, it has been reported by enough reputable sources to make it credible.

USA: Clearly the land of freedom and home for the LX.
Back in Japan, a similar note was added to the build and pricing tools for the new Lexus NX. Orders for this model in its home market have apparently been backed up for about 12 months.

The NX starts at around $40,000 in the US, with the hybrid variant adding a few thousand dollars more. The large, fully loaded LX, meanwhile, starts at $88,245 but can easily get into six-figure territory with no problem. Its top trim, the LX 600 Ultra Luxury, starts at $127,345.
