Lexus’ August sales figures are in, and the automaker has posted 3.6% overall increase when compared to last year.
Here’s the by-model breakdown of the numbers:
The LS 460 is clearly the only reason why Lexus didn’t see a sale decrease, with a 128.3% increase over last year, jumping from 1,386 units sold to 3,164. The ES and RX saw a marginal increase as well, but all other models fell below their August 2006 totals.
I’m continually surprised by the low GS 430/450h sales, but it’s possible that buyers are waiting for the newly spruced up 2008 editions. The same could be said for the LX, with the new LX 570 on its way to showrooms sometime in early 2008.
