Lexus Canada March 2009 Sales Report

Red Lexus IS 250

The release of the 2010 RX 350 has been a huge success for Lexus Canada, helping them set an all-time March sales record of 1,363 units sold, 25.5% higher than last year. Most importantly, these positive numbers certainly a nice change in the face of the automotive meltdown in the USA.

The new RX 350 sold 768 models, up 95.9% over last March and making up the majority of the month’s sales. Lexus is certainly gaining steam in Canada, where the brand has been building up a strong consumer presence.

(In fact, if my recent trips into Toronto are any indication, the brand is bigger than ever. I’ve never seen so many Lexus vehicles on the streets.)

  1. i wonder how Canada manages higher sales while US fails?...

  2. me too.

    In addition, RX sale numbers in US is OK but still disappointing. I thought should be >8000

    MAybe have to wait 450h to come.

  3. That’s what I figure—demand for the hybrid, or at least being able to compare the RX 350 with the RX 450h, is probably what’s depressing sales.
