Here are conference call notes from Steve Hearne, Vice President of Lexus Sales:

 Thank you Bill.
 
I'll get to the June breakout for Lexus in a moment...but the big news for us in June was the launch of the all-new IS lineup, which went on sale Friday.
 
The marketing launch actually started in mid-June, with a heavy emphasis on the new design, driving dynamics and technology advancements of the IS.

It seems to have made a connection with customers, as we sold more than 500 in just three days

 
Many of those customers came looking for the new IS F Sport with its bold design and sporty performance.
 
It helped give us to the best non-holiday weekend for Lexus in six years.
 
Pushed Lexus sales above 21,000 for the second straight month
  • Third time in last four month
Total June sales of 21,355
  • Up 6.7 percent on straight volume basis
YTD, sales up about 10 percent
  • At nearly 120,000 vehicles
The two other new cars in our line-up - the ES and LS - posted strong gains in June and both models
continue to show the biggest increases in their respective luxury segments.
 
ES
  • Up 50 percent in June
  • Sales of more than 33,000 thru first six months
  • Up 83 percent for the year 
LS
  • sales up 45 percent for the month
  • Up 73 percent for the first half
  • LS also received the highest score among all models in J.D. Power's IQS - for the sixth year in a row.
The SUV side of our business
  • RX continues to be the best-selling vehicle in our lineup
    • Sales of more than 8,600 in June
    • Year to date sales up 4 percent
    • Continues to lead luxury SUV segment
  • GX also had a good month
    • Saw sales climb 9 percent for the month
Lexus Certified Pre-Owned
  • Four consecutive record-setting month
We expect the IS fireworks to continue in July
  • All IS models currently at dealerships, including F SPORT version
  • Availability will improve throughout the month
Combined with ES and LS, that will give us three of the hottest models in the growing luxury sedan market.
