Hopefully they've learned the lesson and I hope their take on a lesson is not "oh sedans don't sell anymore".
Absolutely nothing wrong with LS it's a top notch flagship but most of the potential buyers are gone by now cause they couldn't wait for new LS to come out.
@mediumhot I agree!!! They did take to long but hopefully those customers come back!! It is by far way better than what it used to be power and everything. I can’t wait to get mine!!
Do we have any projection for the UX sales volumes?
Disappointing LS sales down 20% is there a specific reason for this drop?
New ES doing well.

UX was projected 1500-1800 per month... it will take a while to reach those numbers as people dont know about it. If they ever reach them, but also CHR took a while to grow to where they wanted it in the US of course.

Plenty of UX200 stock, less of hybrid, while sales should have been 50:50.

In the US, they will have to fight hard to get 50k for ES in the we-dont-like-sedans market.
Avalon is free falling and it is best Avalon ever by far.
For Portugal Lexus registered 27 units, down from 48 last year.
YoY they have registered 71 units, down from 87 (2018).

To give it some perspective for this month from:
- Mercedes, 1.414
- BMW, 1181
- Tesla (Model 3 just started arriving), 109

Unfortunately it is not. It is very much under target. The thing is even so it is still the in the top 3 selling sedans in its class normally.

I believe UX was 12 or 15k a year similar to the CT.
Do we have any idea how many brand new LFAs there still are out there in the dealers?
Apparently quite a few still. I hope I can snag some showroom stock someday. :heart_eyes::D
With 4.4% growth, Lexus is only one among big 3 growing... BMW and MB dropped and Audi dropped by quite large 12% to very small numbers (Acura-like).

Now Lexus numbers are much closer to BMW and MB, with UX just starting sales. Both BMW and MB have had similar car, so Lexus has quite few ways to expand sales in niche markets they were not in before... for instance aside from UX, new CT based sedan like A Sedan / CLA or A3 Sedan plus new LM would add quite few sales to the tally.
