September’s now in the books, and Lexus USA has reported their sales figures for the month — here’s the full model-by-model breakdown:
|MONTH||Year to Date (*DSR)|
|2010||2009||% CHG*||2010||2009||% CHG*|
Numbers are fairly steady in comparison to last year, with the exception of the HS & IS. It’s no struggle to see the reason for these two models seeing a drop in sales:
- The 2011 IS is being advertised nationally and is only now arriving at dealerships, leading to buyers holding off for the updated model.
- Last Semptember was the HS’ first full sales month, always a big month due to built-up demand.
The ES, on the other hand, has rebounded quite nicely from its drop in August.
Canadian Lexus sales were down 13.2% in September, for a total of 1,305 units sold. That said, there were some strong notes, with the GX 460 up 308.3%, the LS 600hL up 200% and the GS 350 seeing a 54.5% increase in sales.
(Have to apologize for the recent lack of updates, my hotel’s Internet connection was brutal and made any work impossible. Plenty to catch up on — I’ll have photos from the Paris Motor Show up over the weekend, along the full official CT 200h photo galleries and plenty more. Thank you for your patience.)
