November has flown by, here are the model-by-model sales numbers for Lexus USA:
|MONTH||Year to Date (*DSR)|
|2010||2009||% CHG*||2010||2009||% CHG*|
Strangely enough, in a month with more negatives than positives, the bright spots are at the very top of the model lineup — the LS, LX & GX all saw decent sales improvements over last year.
From the looks of things, Lexus is going to be in tough for the next couple months while they prepare for the launch of the CT 200h, which is sure to bring a boost to the bottom line.
As for how the US luxury sales battle is going — even with the down month, Lexus managed to cement its lead over BMW & Mercedes:
- Lexus: 201,769
- BMW: 196,833
- Mercedes (minus Sprinter sales): 196,288
With a 4,936 unit lead over second-place BMW, Lexus looks poised to retain its top billing as the #1 luxury car manufacturer in the USA.
