Is anybody else wondering why Lexus has decided to debut the NX in Beijing and not in NYC, which has its motor show happening at the same time as Beijing? It seems to me that the NYC motor show is a bigger deal so why not show it off there?

Likely cause China is a market they want to expand in and this is a good way to do it.

maybe lexus is really trying to aim the NX at the china market instead.

It would make sense that they do this.
Every where else they sell right now wouldn't be a problem for them to sell in, in the future. No one will question it.

China is a different story

I think that Lexus and Toyota has a harder time selling in China since the Chinese generally aren't the biggest fans of Japan. Maybe they are trying extra hard to push their products there to overcome this. Do you think that the design of the NX looks like it is geared towards China? Wouldn't they also be releasing a long wheel base version if they want to do well in China too?

Good point.
Sounds like with a vehicle like this the chinese are more likely to buy due to how much it offers for the price it's going for.
