The original debut for the RX400h was supposed to be soon, like November of this year, but Lexus has been forced to wait until early next year due to production difficulties caused by what is vaguely termed "limited hardware availability." The 400h's gas-electric hybrid powertrain is designed for both performance and economy, unlike every other hybrid that places a premium on extracting the best possible mileage and providing the least exciting drive imaginable. The next SUV to get the hybrid treatment will be Toyota's Highlander, which will follow the RX's launch by a few months. U.S. Lexus dealers are especially anxious for the release, as they have already collected 8000 cash deposits for the RX400h and spent all the money on pizza and hookers and coke.
