Lexus IS-C Sales Expectations

2010 Lexus IS250C Convertible

Lexus has shared some of the sales expectations of the new IS convertible—according to Automotive News, the company is hoping for worldwide monthly sales of 1,600 units.

Whether or not such numbers are possible will depend entirely on North America, where 70% of production will be sent. “This is meant to appeal as an entry-level Lexus,” project manager Keiichi Nishiyama told Automotive News. “Its main target is overseas customers, especially in North America.”

Such numbers won’t be hard to achieve during the first few months that the convertible is available, but sustained sales are another story altogether. The IS-C will be available in dealerships later this month.
