Note: I’m going to try something new this month and collect worldwide Lexus sales in one post. This will be updated as country numbers become available.

USA

Lexus USA has reported their sales numbers for November 2009:

November Year to Date
2009 2008 % CHG 2009 2008 % CHG
IS 2,851 2,749 12.7 33,924 45,893 -25.6
HS 1,407 0 N/A 4,719 0 N/A
ES 4,110 4,116 8.5 41,954 58,899 -28.3
GS 596 721 -10.1 6,367 14,559 -56.0
SC 34 83 -55.5 670 1,870 -63.9
LS 1,057 1,272 -9.7 9,249 18,804 -50.5
Total Cars 10,055 8,941 22.2 96,883 140,025 -30.3
RX 7,923 5,850 47.2 81,564 74,249 10.6
GX 209 1,008 -77.5 5,733 15,044 -61.6
LX 313 424 -19.8 3,230 7,407 -56.1
Total Trucks 8,445 7,282 26.1 90,527 96,700 -5.7
Total Sales 18,500 16,223 24.0 187,410 236,725 -20.3

The ES has joined the IS & RX on the positive side of the ledger, and most other models show a significant percentage increase compared to last month. Of course, much of this is due to how hard automotive sales were hit by economic meltdown in November 2008, but at least things are starting to look up.

And what can be said about the RX? What an absolute juggernaut. The only possible concern could be the RX 450h sales, which only accounted for 1,210 of the total 7,913 sales, but that could just as soon be due to supply.

Canada

Lexus Canada sold 1,283 vehicles, which set a record as the best-ever November. Some specifics:

  • 769 luxury SUVs (up 31.5% to set a new November record)
  • 514 luxury sedans (down 9.3%)

Canada doesn’t break numbers down by model, but it’s safe to say that the new RX also played a large role in this month’s success.

Japan

Lexus looks to be gaining some momentum in Japan, with sales of 4,617 vehicles. This is a 121.1% increase over November 2008.
