Lexus USA November 2008 Sales Report

Lexus Logo

The November sales for Lexus USA have been reported today, and at least the numbers are better than last month’s drop:

2008 2007 % Change
IS250/350/F 2,749 3,849 -28.6
ES350 4,116 5,902 -30.3
GS350/460/450h 721 2,205 -67.3
SC430 83 268 -69.0
LS460/600h L 1,272 2,668 -52.3
Total Cars 8,941 14,892 -40.0
RX350/400h 5,850 8,038 -27.2
GX470 1,008 1,847 -45.4
LX570 424 71 497.2
Total Trucks 7,282 9,956 -26.9
Total Sales 16,223 24,848 -34.7

As is my tendency, I’m searching for the bright side of things, and the LX 570 shines like a strange, improbable beacon. Two points off of 500% growth while everything else is at last 30% off? That’s practically amazing. Still, I can’t help but notice the ugly 67.3% drop in GS sales under last year, which is particularly worrying considering that the redesign is probably two years away.

(I did just think of a positive, at least the numbers next year won’t look so bad.)
