Initial Lexus LS Orders in Japan Exceed First Year Sales Goal

Lexus LS Japan

The 2018 Lexus LS is already a big hit in Japan — pre-orders for the new flagship sedan have reached 9,500 units, or nearly 1,600% higher than the sales goal of 600 units a month. The LS 500h is dominating the powertrain split, with 72% of the mix.

For perspective, in the unlikely event that Lexus does not increase production to match demand and all orders are honored, the waiting list for the LC coupe in Japan is now over a year long.
