Monthly sales for the Lexus RZ 450e should be around 439 in North America, 584 in Europe and 1,500 in China. So allocations for the RZ won't be easy to come by in the first model year which will lead to insane dealer markups!
can you please name the dealer? I am looking for NX 350H in the bay area and dealers are asking for a markupWill have to see. My dealership in Norcal honored no mark up when I purchased the NX 450h+. There is a decent chance I will walk away if they mark up, in the end it's not like I'm super eager to get this car this year. Although I need to admit the federal $7,500 incentive phasing out might play a role.
I couldn’t find anything from the website, did you have to call and ask to be added to the waitlist?Thank you!Currently on a waitlist at a dealer who indicates no add-up above MSRP. But the small refundable deposit doesn't come close to revealing any terms & conditions. So, anything is possible. Dealers are still slimy, even Lexus ones.
Apparently, mark-ups in Canada are actually legal, as long as the overcharge is advertised. But Canadians are not very sympathetic to these sales practices, and any dealership that does that will damage its reputation.I feel lucky that markups aren’t legal in Canada. I concur that this will most definitely impact US buyers…
Out of these 439 units, probably 40 will go to Canada. 40 cars a month for the whole Country!Currently on a waitlist at a dealer who indicates no add-up above MSRP. But the small refundable deposit doesn't come close to revealing any terms & conditions. So, anything is possible. Dealers are still slimy, even Lexus ones.
I tell ya, with about 220 U.S. dealers and production at under 600 a month, it's gonna be a long wait. I really wanted the yoke too. After Sept, or end of year depending where you read it, the $7500 gets cut in half.
My gut says it'll easily be mid to late 2023 before I pull the trigger on one I can be happy with for 10+ years. Too bad Teslas are built like shit and look like shit and led by a narcissistic class 420 clown. (Ooppps, did I say that?) Otherwise the tech & battery/motor are pretty solid.
