UX250h was 42nd overall with 916 vehicles sold. ES300h was 4th among sedans with 1144 vehicles sold, 38th overall. These two models accoubted for 49% of sales.
Holy smokes. UX at 22% of Lexus sales in Japan -- wonder if it can sustain that percentage.

Lexus sales up 117,7% to 7727 in September. 49004 YTD with growth of 13,5%. Sudden surge is caused by VAT increase taking place in October.

Lexus is doing something remarkable in Japan. They just increased VAT from 8% to 10%. Auto market had amazing September but October market saw decrease of 26,4%. But Lexus gained 18,7% They are now unstoppable. YoY growth is 13,9% and unless MB made miracle Lexus regained it's position as NO1 luxury only brand.

Until UX goes into 2nd year and sales drop again... hopefully they will have new CT by then.

Japanese market is very frontloaded, they need a ton of new models all the time to keep the sales up.

I say you are 100% wrong, but we see it in a year
