Please note, all percentages are calculated by the Daily Sales Rate (DSR), which takes into account the number of days in the month that dealerships could sell cars. June 2012 had 27 selling days, June 2011 had 26 selling days.

Like last month, the only two volume models to show a sales decrease are the now-discontinued HS and the LS — every other model jumped at least 39% (!!!).

Of course, these staggering gains are due to last year’s lack of inventory as Japan dealt with the tsunami aftermath, and should really be viewed as Lexus sales getting back to normal levels.

That said, the fourth-generation GS has averaged over 2,000 sales a month since its debut — here’s how competitors are performing in the USA:

While the GS is in no position to catch the 5-series or E Class, the 425.3% increase over last year pushes Lexus into third place in the segment — impressive results for a sedan that was almost cancelled.
