For Lexus lightning does strike twice. Following far in the wake of the wildly successful RX, the NX is behaving just like its big brother...
May 2015 was the 6 month old NX's best month ever, combined the NX200t and NX300h added 4,104 U.S sales to Lexus tally.Although the RX saw its sales decline 5% in May, crossovers and SUV's still account for some 49% of all Lexus volume in the USA, up from 43% this time last year. To put how successful the NX has been to date in perspective, the only 2 cars in segment that have moved in higher volumes are the Acura RDX and the Audi Q5.
While the NX and RX have manged to co-exist to date I'm almost half wondering if that wasn't because of incentives on the outgoing RX as we know a new one is on its way shortly and with styling pulling the NX and RX much closer together visually then before could the NX be in for some of the RX's venerable volume?
