Small is big in EU, apparently.

Holy moly, over 85% of IS sales were of the hybrid variant. I wonder what would happen if they offered it in the States?

I'd get an IS 300h over my 250. I loved the CT I had and could only imagine how good the IS 300h would be. Glad to see the NX's sales are heavily influencing the bottom line. It's a global success story indeed! Lexus must be in the process of assessing capacity increases for the NX. We'll find out soon enough I bet.

Just to clarify: in some EU countries, there is only the hybrid available, which I do not regret.

I'm going to guess that the ES was only sold in Russia and likely Ukraine, hence why they sold 461 units? Western Europe isn't too keen on vehicles of that ES' size (like the Camry).
So that's where all the NX 300h's ended up! I've only seen one since they premiered and that was only because it was a special order. Someone tell Lexus to get us more ASAP!!!!

I'd like to know how much RC 350 and RC 300h sold...
