With an early start to the December to Remember sales event and an influx of customers replacing vehicles damaged by Hurricane Sandy, Lexus USA had its best November in five years.

RX sales have rebounded nicely with a 17% sales increase after a lackluster October, and the new ES & GS both showed impressive numbers (28.2% and 786.4%, respectively). The 2013 LS also started arriving at dealerships, and managed to post a decent increase with limited availability.

Going over the full lineup, every model looks to be performing as expected — even the CT with its 28% drop in November should finish the year with a 25%+ sales increase compared to 2011.
