Lexus Sales in Japan have Doubled in 2018

Amazing, finally Lexus is Japanese car maker now , but I still worried about all the Japanese makers future, if Japanese electronics current vs past is any clue about what we may see happening in case they don't take the notice
Where is the ES manufactured? Kentucky USA and where else?
Japan... but it just started sales few days ago
Problem is that japanese electronic makers never actually had such advantages as TMC does... and they still show if they put their priorities straight, they can do great. Point being Sony - with company priorities aligned, this year will be the most profitable year in company history.. including the years of PS2 or Trinton TVs.
From what they are doing they are certainly not following the electronic industry's footsteps. They are making the right investment and finding the right partners. And to be fair, the Japanese electronic industry was killed by the Lost Decade, which itself is directed and executed by the United States. No matter how powerful a company is, it just can't fight the most powerful entity in the world.
well not only that, problem with Japanese tech companies was that they were never focused properly and mismanaged by brilliant tech people who could not see the whole picture. Also workplace culture was bad in the sense that did not award innovative thinking and young people, and they are trying hard to change that.
Not surprising. Toyota and Lexus are so dominant in Japan its not even funny. Lexus less so but clearly has made major gains in 12 years.
Indeed. Remember when the brand was launched there, and nobody wanted it, and many said it couldn't sell against BMW, Mercedes and the legacy Toyota models?
I thought the ES also build in Canada
RX is also built in Canada, ES never was.
Aha , sorry for mismatch
So only Japan & USA ?
As far as I know, yes.
Right here in Cambridge, south of my home city in Waterloo ON!
Side note: I know someone whose brother works there, and he says that they get plenty of extra time to complete their jobs on the assembly line, over what they're allotted on the Toyota models.
