Lexus has reached the milestone of 1,000,000 hybrids sold since the introduction of the RX 400h in April 2005 — here are some charts breaking down hybrid sales by region and model:
Hybrid Sales By Market
|Market||Sales Since 2005 (approx.)||Sales in 2015|
Hybrid Sales by Model
|Model||Sales Since 2005 (approx.)|
Despite higher overall sales, North America has ceded hybrid leadership to Europe — perhaps not that surprising given that most European regions no longer offer petrol/gas models.
Nearly every row of the model-by-model breakdown is a storyline — the RX is certainly the highest selling Lexus hybrid line, but it had a significant head start over every other model.
The ES hybrid is another curiosity, as it’s not offered in all regions and still manages to be the third best-selling model — the gas vs. hybrid ES sales in North America must be a fairly even split.
