Total Sales 23,165 18,091 23.1 88,250 74,831 17.9

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. April 2014 had 26 selling days, April 2013 had 25 selling days.

It’s turning into a broken record, but the IS & GX continue to have an excellent year so far. The IS is a fresh new model and its success is completely understandable, but even Lexus was surprised how consumers are flocking to the updated GX — I continue to hear about lack of inventory from dealerships.

It’s easy to gloss over the success of the RX, but this month’s sales amaze me — the model is six years old, it’s one year removed from its recent update, and still the crossover continues to improve its sales. Will we even see a dip in sales when the NX arrives in dealerships?

(Ok seriously — how did Lexus sell 5 LFAs in April? Wonder what the story is.)
