    @Raytheeagle There's hope!

    Between the RX450+ and the NX450+. Although in Canada, Lexus tends to price their SUV hybrids higher than Toyota does with the RAV and Highlander. (The ESh is actually priced reasonably). Lexus Canada has dropped the base price of the NXh twice by decontenting during its life cycle.

    By the time our 2017 RX is ready to be traded in (her family tends to hang onto vehicles for a VERY long time) a plug in SUV will be the next step, if not full BEV:).

    We had her 4Runner for 17 years and her mother has only had 3 cars in her ownership for almost 50 years of driving;).

    By 2032 (which is when the RX will probably be replaced), I hope Lexus has a BEV, which will be in our garage next to either a Prime BEV or Rivian R1T(y).
