The 2018 LS started arriving in dealerships in the last half of February, and its impact can already seen on the bottom line with an 86.4% sales increase. It was also another record month for the NX and Lexus SUV lineup in general, with a 12.3% climb.

Here’s Lexus USA general manager Jeff Bracken on the month:

“Lexus kept its momentum going with another strong month in February. NX, both gas and hybrid, had its best-ever February while our LUVs also delivered another record month.

We’ve now launched our all-new 5th-generation LS and LS hybrid sedans, so we expect a very strong first quarter. These new models will be followed by 10 additional new or updated models, so we’re very optimistic about the year ahead.”
