Lexus USA has reported 24,395 total sales for June 2017, a 5.4% decrease over last year — here’s the model-by-model breakdown:
|MONTH||Year to Date (*DSR)|
|2017||2016||% CHG*||2017||2016||% CHG*|
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. June 2017 had 26 selling days, March 2016 had 27 selling days.
The LC has continued its strong start after launching last month, and stands as a bright light among the car lineup. It’s the SUVs where Lexus is seeing the most success, with every model save the GX showing a sales increase.
Here’s what Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager, had to say about June sales:
“It’s no surprise that our luxury utility vehicles are driving Lexus sales, and our NX is on fire,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “Looking forward, our dealers run even faster the second half of the year, and with great availability, we’re in a very healthy position to meet our customer needs. 2017 will see a strong close to another great year for the industry.”
