Total Sales 26,921 22,229 16.6 115,171 97,060 17.7

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. May 2014 had 27 selling days, May 2013 had 26 selling days.

2014 is proving to be a good year for Lexus in the USA — the IS has doubled sales for the past six months, the GX has doubled sales for the past seven months, and most of the lineup has maintained its sales levels from a year ago.

All told, the brand had its best May since 2008 and its third month in a row of double-digit growth.

(Unfortunately, the GS has slipped into the negative column again after a couple strong months — it joins the LS as the only two models that didn’t outperform last year’s sales.)
