USA

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*
ES 3,697 3,046 21.4 33,960 33,431 2.0
HS 711 1,242 -42.8 7,962 1,785 348.0
LS 712 777 -8.4 8,287 7,388 12.7
SC 26 19 36.8 283 595 -52.2
GS 542 501 8.2 5,239 5,277 -0.3
IS 2,447 3,346 -26.9 24,694 27,911 -11.1
Total Cars 8,135 8,931 -8.9 80,425 76,387 5.7
LX 339 307 10.4 2,595 2,513 3.7
GX 1,054 473 122.8 11,522 5,183 123.3
RX 7,420 8,228 -9.8 67,896 65,325 4.4
Total Trucks 8,813 9,008 -2.2 82,013 73,021 12.8
Total Sales 16,948 17,939 -5.5 162,438 149,408 9.2

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.

Canada

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.)
