Well, it looks like NX300h is probably heavier than Toyota Camry Hybrid...and TCH gets around 8.0-8.5 seconds 0-60. THEN you add weight and AWD system...9.3 is probably right on the money. (In addition, Lexus tends to be conservative with their numbers...even then though, i doubt that you will see 7-seconds for the NX300h.)

I think that the Hybrid will be luxury and you can see that in the UK option profile. It will cost more than a base NX200t, contrary to recent report that hybrid and turbo will be same.

Were you guys expecting in the 6-second range?

My guess is that fuel economy will be around 36 mpg (maybe 38 city and 35 hwy).

This is a £30k+ car we are talking about here, I just can't see how Lexus is going to win against European competition with figures like this. Maybe I'm wrong.

The NX200t will be faster...that will be the "sports" car of NX model range.

NX300h is being marketed, at least from what i have read, as luxury and for those who favor comfort over sport.

0-62 is the same for FWD and AWD, 9.3 sec for a hybrid is expected, I hope the 200t will do it 6.5-7.5 range. F model AWD only, wonder if it will be the same here and how much more weight the AWD system will put on.
Other thing worth mentioning is that the F doesn't show as having paddle shifters, did I miss it or will those paddle shifter only be for the turbo model?

do you think we could ever see anything above the 300h?

Yes, it is called, RX350! :) I think that any higher end model of NX will be well into RX pricing territory.

As of right now, MY GUESS is that NX300h loaded will run around $43-45k.

Oh yeah forgot...NX300h AWD is really just tiny battery-powered electric motors on the rear axle to drive it. No driveshaft. So, yeah, it would make sense that acceleration be the same since weight is not an issue nor parasitic loss.

Now, the AWD on NX200t should have more parasitic loss from AWD system and weight.

yeah i guess, maybe at the most we'll end up seeing an f sport model from the looks of it
