Automotive News has a couple key insights on the Lexus NX, including its global sales figures and the gas/hybrid split in the USA:

Lexus sells about 12,000 NX crossovers a month worldwide. The U.S. is the biggest market, snapping up about 4,000 a month. Last year, NX sales in the U.S. climbed 25 percent in a hot premium compact crossover market that rose 32 percent.

The vehicle is offered as a 2.0-liter turbo or 2.5-liter hybrid in the U.S., but the turbo variant accounts for more than 90 percent of its sales there, Kato said.

According to NX chief engineer Takeaki Kato, the updated 2018 NX crossover will go on sale in North America and China in the fall.
