The Lexus USA March 2009 sales figures have been released, and it’s more of the same:

2009 2008 % Change
IS250/350/F 2,432 4,798 -47.3
ES350 3,225 6,019 -44.3
GS350/460/450h 625 1,668 -61.0
SC430 78 271 -70.1
LS460/600h L 852 2,125 -58.3
Total Cars 7,212 14,881 -49.6
RX350/400h 6,177 7,737 -17.0
GX470 561 1,679 -65.3
LX570 289 642 -53.2
Total Trucks 7,027 10,058 -27.3
Total Sales 14,239 24,939 -40.6

The new RX 350 gave the SUV’s numbers a big boost, making up almost 85% of sales. Not enough to push it into positive territory, but certainly a welcome improvement.

There was a sprinkle of hope in the Lexus press release, and it comes from taking a different angle on the sales numbers: Even though there was a 40.6% drop when compared with March 2008, sales are up 13.6% over February.
