Call your local Lexus and ask them to bring the car here.

The car, though small look nice. Glad to see another Chademo in the market. Reviews showing up in Spain, UK, and Portugal. I have pinged Toyota a couple times and asked when its coming to the US.

Any board members from Europe considering the car as an option?

I don't see much interest in this here in Norway at least. But they will probably sell a few here and there. It should be noted that Lexus in general is not a very popular brand in Norway and there are very few Lexus-dealerships here. Also, Chademo is sort of a showstopper for an new EV over here.

I did consider to steer my parents in direction of this as they currently have a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, but they seem a little worried about range anxiety, charging and such when it comes to EVs - and they don't drive that much either, just about 5000 miles a year.

If they would run the ICE often enough to burn the gas every year, the Rav-4 Prime might be the ticket for them

I am surprised at how well the Leaf still sells there. Norway now sells almost as many Leafs as the entire US monthly. 400+

My assumption was that Lexus was coming to Norway, UK, Spain, and zportugal because of the Chademo and Leaf population in those countries.

The Leaf ticks many boxes for Norwegian car buyers. It is priced well, quite roomy and have a reputation for being very reliable. In Norway many EV-buyers are also not that particularly interested in EVs, it is just that it is the most sensible option when you are buying a new car in Norway today. So they don't care to much about Chademo/CCS, Rapidgate or battery degradation (the latter is not a big problem in Norway anyway).

I appreciate you sharing the Norwegian perspective. Many of us have had a similar positive experience.
