Lexus USA has reported 22,719 total sales for October 2013, a 10.2% improvement over last year — here’s the model-by-model breakdown:
|MONTH||Year to Date (*DSR)|
|2013||2012||% CHG*||2013||2012||% CHG*|
Please note, all percentages are calculated by the Daily Sales Rate (DSR), which takes into account the number of days in the month that dealerships could sell cars. October 2013 had 27 selling days, October 2012 had 26 selling days.
For the most part, it’s all positives for Lexus in October — the new IS had a good month, the ES & LS are continuing to set a strong pace, and the refreshed GX and the rest of SUV lineup showed excellent growth over last year.
The GS continues to struggle after a successful 2012, with sales dipping to 1,293. That said, the GS is also the oldest model in the lineup outside of the CTh, which is also struggling — I wonder if Lexus USA bringing in the GS 300h would do anything to boost sales?
