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. November 2013 had 26 selling days, November 2012 had 25 selling days.

The IS had an extremely successful month, just about hitting the 4,000 unit mark for the first time since the sedan has been redesigned. The ES continues its remarkable performance with 6,295 sales, and the entire SUV lineup all had strong numbers in November.

On a less positive note, the LS fell 23.7% year over year despite 1,000+ sales, though this drop can be explained — the revamped flagship sedan was just hitting dealerships this time last November. Both the CT & GS remain in the negative column, though there’s hope for the CT to regain some momentum when the 2014 refresh starts arriving in dealerships.

Canada

Lexus Canada sold 1,330 vehicles last month, up 3.4% over last year and setting a new November record. This marks the fourth month in a row for record sales in Canada.
