TCI reported a 3.0% decline in overall sales with a total of 20,401 units sold during the month of March. Toyota division recorded sales of 18,185 units, down 4.1% compared to last year.

  • 4Runner sales of 784 units, up 20.1% (new March record)
If you look at the PDF you can see GS gaining 78%.
GS is like some ghost that comes back to haunt Lexus... on the most random months, it comes from nowhere posting huge gains. It cracks me up.

Dismal LS sales in Canada, worse than LC. Only 5 in March! o_O

UX doing ok in US and better in Canada (proportionally) to no surprise as we prefer smaller vehicles in general. Is the target 2k monthly in the US? Can't remember seeing it somewhere.

I think target was 18k-20k for the year in the US... seems like UX250h is making it happen.

March is generally a big month for Lexus, these are good numbers.

BMW, MB, Audi, Infiniti are all down for the year, Lexus is only luxury brand that has increased sales in 2019 in the USA.
For March in Portugal Lexus sold 86 units (up from 65 last year).
YoY goes with 157 units (3 more than last year).

To give it some perspective (month/year):
-Jaguar, 63/295
-Tesla, 355/479
-Volvo, 547/1405
-BMW, 1358/3496
-Mercedes, 1588/4326
Even I know it won't happen still dreaming of 4doors coupe GSF
