Lexus has announced the results for the first six months of 2017, with 305,169 vehicles sold worldwide. This is a relatively small 4.4% decrease compared to the year previous.
As anyone following USA sales could tell, the car market is the reason for lower sales. Lexus SUV and crossovers have been strong, with 186,523 total sales compared to the 118,638 passenger cars sold.
The RX remains the top selling Lexus model with 90,312 units sold, and the NX has quickly jumped to second place with 66,946 units sold. Globally, the lineup of Lexus luxury SUVs accounted for 61.1% of the brand’s total sales during the first 6 months of 2017.
