Note: I’m going to try something new this month and collect worldwide Lexus sales in one post. This will be updated as country numbers become available.
Lexus USA has reported their sales numbers for November 2009:
|November||Year to Date|
|2009||2008||% CHG||2009||2008||% CHG|
The ES has joined the IS & RX on the positive side of the ledger, and most other models show a significant percentage increase compared to last month. Of course, much of this is due to how hard automotive sales were hit by economic meltdown in November 2008, but at least things are starting to look up.
And what can be said about the RX? What an absolute juggernaut. The only possible concern could be the RX 450h sales, which only accounted for 1,210 of the total 7,913 sales, but that could just as soon be due to supply.
Lexus Canada sold 1,283 vehicles, which set a record as the best-ever November. Some specifics:
- 769 luxury SUVs (up 31.5% to set a new November record)
- 514 luxury sedans (down 9.3%)
Canada doesn’t break numbers down by model, but it’s safe to say that the new RX also played a large role in this month’s success.
Lexus looks to be gaining some momentum in Japan, with sales of 4,617 vehicles. This is a 121.1% increase over November 2008.
