While I’m sure Lexus doesn’t like seeing a dip in the year-over-year sales numbers, the decline can be attributed almost entirely to the HS 250h stop sale that was in place for most of the month due to a recall. Even so, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some interesting variation in this month’s sales, particularly with the IS & LX models.

The IS saw a 25.9% drop in sales, which is significant for such a high-volume model, though it may partially due to the expected changes in 2011 edition. The LX, on the other hand, is experiencing a resurgence, jumping up 28.1% over last July. In fact, all the Lexus SUVs performed well this month, which fits in with the industry-wide trend of increased SUV sales.

Canada

Canadian sales were released, and sales were down 20.6% with 1,201 vehicles sold. There were a couple bright spots though, with LS 460 sales up 23.5% (21 units sold) and the GX showing a 112.5% (34 units sold) increase over last year.
