Mark Templin of Lexus International VP fame spoke with Auto News and froecasted take rates between turbo and hybrid:

Although Lexus gave no official fuel economy estimates for the hybrid, a source said it should get in the 34-36 mpg range in combined city and highway driving.

The turbo drivetrain likely will account for 80 to 85 percent of U.S. sales, Lexus International Executive Vice President Mark Templin predicted. “In the U.S., they want fun to drive, a little more power,” he said.

Templin said Lexus tuned the turbo to deliver smooth acceleration, rather than jerky power thrusts.

“I think ours is going to be more refined than the rest of them in the market,” he said. “Ours is more linear, smoother. Much more luxurylike.”

Well RX H carries a $7K premium over the gasser, so likely a similar step up for the NX.
