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.
- Up 50 percent in June
