New Lexus LX Demand is so Strong that JDM Buyers Will Need to Wait 4 Years for Delivery

Supply chain disruptions and pent-up demand has pushed orders for the Lexus LX into its model update


  • Japanese customers can no longer order the Lexus NX for the same reason.

  • In the US, Lexus has a significant sold order bank as well, but delays are shorter.


Production for the new Lexus LX is limited to Japan while the country and Canada are responsible for producing the equally new NX. As supply chain disruptions continue to plague the automaker, they’ve found that demand for both SUVs has outstripped its capacity to produce them.

Demand for the LX has created a massive 4-year backorder in Japan which has forced Lexus to stop taking orders altogether in its home market. As for the NX, wait times will now exceed a full year between placing an order and deliveries in Japan.

LX is very popular not only in Japan but also around the world, and we have received orders that greatly exceed our production capacity,” Lexus said in an apology on its Japanese website as reported by Automotive News.

North American customers are in a slightly better position as Lexus will continue to take orders however deliveries will still take a while.

“For the U.S. market, we are getting some global allocation preference. This is still not enough, but we don’t have a four-year wait,” Toyota Motor North America spokesman Scott Vazin said.
