Hello from Yorkshire. I've found this forum really useful in preparing for NX ownership, and have now taken delivery of my NX300h. It's the UK Luxury grade, in Sonic Titanium (think this is Atomic Silver in the US?). Cheers, Martin.

Do you know what the differences are from the UK and U.S. version?

Only thing I can guess that would be different are the cup holders, us mericans need bigger ones.

Big enough to fit the ridiculous Double Big Gulp from 7-11. lol

What made you choose the hybrid over the gas versions?

Thanks for the comments. UK/Europe vs US spec? Not sure, though I've seen some discussion about the US modification to front-end styling to enable the NX to qualify as a light truck for reasons apparently to do with corporate average fuel economy! And each market seems to create its own grades from the specs that Lexus offer. F-sport versions here have the adaptive suspension option which I understand isn't available in the US? Not sure about Canada.

Hybrid vs gas? Here the NX200t is only available in F-sport, but as I'm a long-term hybrid driver there was no going back.

In Europe the NX competitors - Q5, X3 - mostly sell as diesels for reasons partly to do with CO2-emission-based taxation. With growing concern about air quality due to diesel particulates, Lexus's decision to emphasise hybrids here looks like a good long-term bet.

We might even see a growing amount of hydrogren lexus vehicles along with hybrids. Hydrogen is what they're pushing with toyota.

Are there any hydrogen vehicles actually on sale right now though? Isn't it just one that is only available in California?

$57,000? That's not the worst, but I am more curious about what the deal is with re-fueling. I imagine that you won't be traveling too far since I don't think there are hydrogen stations on every corner yet.

Their promo video does make it sound pretty cool though, and I think that it may be an actually more environmentally friendly option than electricity. How do they get the hydrogen, and am I correct in saying the only bi-product is water?
