The growth is thanks to the RX selling 12,000 more than last year. Tremendous growth! The RC is also up quite a bit. I wonder what "Other Models" mean, because that also went YoY. The NX is down slightly, but is still the best selling model. I'm curious to see if the UX will finally be what brings Lexus over the 100,000 mark in Europe.

I think the UX will do substantially better in Europe than here in the U.S. Here, the average buyer often doesn't associate the Lexus nameplate with very small subcompact CUVs (smaller-than-NX) like they would with the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Jeep Renegade, Ford EcoSport, etc..... That's probably why we haven't seen similar-sized CUVs yet in the U.S. from other upscale manufacturers, though some are sold overseas.

NX is really paying off. Lexus/Akio bet big on radical and won big. I'm seeing NX everywhere nowadays.

Does anyone have the 2015 sales? It would be nice to see how the models compared to last year.

And I would not like to see the full list of all luxury car makers (like we see for the US sales) because that's... depressing.
