Lexus Logo

Lexus Europe have reported their 2011 first quarter sales — here it is, broken down (mostly) by model:

Model Sales
CT 2,199
IS 1,514
GS (including GS Hybrid) 257
GS Hybrid 143
LS (including LS Hybrid) 135
LS Hybrid 69
RX (including RX Hybrid) 3,758
RX Hybrid 2,451
Other models 1,695
Total 1st Quarter Sales 10,254

(Lexus Europe is made up of all Western, Central and Eastern European countries including Turkey and Russia as well as Israel and a number of Central Asian markets (Armenia, Azerbaijan, East Russia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan)).

Now these may be small numbers compared to the U.S. market, but the 10,254 sales represent a 43% increase over 2010. This is mostly on the CT 200h, which has instantly accounted for 28% of sales and helped Lexus Europe set a new all-time monthly sales record of 6,519 units. Looks like Lexus’ goal of building a hybrid hatchback for the European market has been an early success — it’s certainly been a fantastic launch so far.

    That’s actually a direct quote from the Lexus Europe press release —
    must have something to do with how they zone the continent.

    how is Lexus perceived in European contries compared to say brands like MErcedes, BMW and Audi??? Do they see it as a luxury brand or just Japanese just like say a Toyota, Honda etc?? How Japanese brands fair in Europe in general??

  • Vzet

    The average price of a Lexus sold in Europe is much higher then that of Mercedes, BMW & Audi.. The German 3 in Europe the majority sold are very very entry level and basic, small diesel engines, cloth interior trim, manual transmission and they’re comparable to Toyota Yaris..
