US automotive sales were flat this month, and Lexus was no different. The cause, of course, was last year’s Cash for Clunkers program — almost all Lexus models eligible for purchase under the program (IS, ES, RX) saw significant decreases.

With this taken into account, it’s a good sign that all the other models in the lineup showed positive gains — even the now-defunct SC had a sales increase.

Canada

Canadian Lexus sales were down 18.2% in August, for a total of 1,253 units sold. That said, Lexus 460 sales were up 75%, GX 460 sales up 30%, and the HS had its best month yet.

    Also on 7/16 the new 2011 IS models were announced, so perhaps people decided to wait for this rather than get a 2010. I know I am.

    Yeah, same here. 7/16 was one of the best Fridays I had this summer! I almost wanted to get a 2010 or just wait for the next IS generation.
