Lexus officially confirmed to be bringing their Lexus LF-NX Concept from Frankfurt to the Tokyo Motor Show this year.
This may not sound like news, but Lexus is not a brand sold in Japan’s domestic market since all of Lexus’ models are sold as Toyotas on their home turf. However, for the first time, Lexus will be selling their vehicles branded as Lexus in Japan to test market interest.
Don’t forget, Lexus was established as an American brand designed specifically to cater to the at-the-time, largest automobile market in the world—the US market—who are obviously obsessed with luxury.
