I would definitely not bother with a Tesla especially with the Model 3 not offering an ESA / extended warranty and with shady Right to Repair though there was an article last week that said Tesla is finally opening it up.

That was a mistake - the Tesla China server hadn't secured the "confidential" repair manuals so some people found them, but it got closed again about an hour after Electrek reported it.

It's just me or this SUV looks awfull a lot like the 2NX BestCar render?

We can see that:
  • Spindle Grill goes really up to the hood;
  • That line where the fog light uses to go;
  • Almost vertical front end

It's just me seeing things or this can really be the 2NX?

Also, this being the 2NX, does Lexus "confirmed" it will have a BEV variant?

They look quite different to me - in the video, the camo'ed prototype has a pretty squared off back half whereas the Best Car render is pretty swoopy. The fenders are also more pronounce and square in the prototype.

But, based on timing, it makes the most sense for that vehicle to be the NX anyway.

@Gecko, I'm not giving the top part of the back end a lot of attention because they clearly used the current 1NX to make this render:

I'm looking more into overall design language and design features than to the exact proportions of it.

EDIT: At the back, they also made a more squared SUV:

While still using the top part from the 1NX, perhaps to look more production like/easier to do?

2021 is nearly here
And we will be able to see both new RX & NX maybe even the whole new TX
I agree with you BestCar photos are just a rendering

But if your scenario is right
That may means Lexus will go the German route

NX normal styled small Lux CUV X3/Q5/GLC
?X sporty styled small Lux CUV X4/Q5 sport/GLC coupe

TX normal styled mid Lux CUV X5/GLE
RX sporty styled mid Lux CUV X6/GLE coupe

LX normal styled full Lux SUV X7/GLS
?X sporty styled full Lux CUV aka LF-1 limitless, X8/rumoured GLS coupe/Q8/Urus

I still think it's the LX. The space from the the top of the front wheel to the hood is too tall for the NX. Also, the wheels are from the LX570. Compared to the ES wheels, they are huge. My guess is LX!
