Lexus (and parent Toyota) have taken an odd, tentative half-in/half-out attitude towards the burgeoning U.S. auto industry trend of moving towards quarterly (as opposed to monthly) sales reports. Lexus and Toyota USA Newsrooms do NOT have a detailed, model-by-model sales breakdown for January 2020. And an Automotive News article on the subject contains this passage:
On the other hand, a separate Automotive News article states that January 2020 U.S. Lexus sales totaled 19,621 units, a 12.6% increase over January 2019's 17,420 units. The article also states that Lexus RX set a January sales record.Audi, BMW, Nissan, Porsche and Volkswagen have made back-to-back announcements that they will stop reporting their model-by-model monthly sales results across the U.S., switching instead to quarterly reports. Toyota has joined the rebellion by brands that represent the bulk of U.S. sales, although last week it held out the possibility of at least making its monthly results available on a less formal basis.
