Default Lexus ES Top Seller

2013 Lexus ES is one of top sellers (top luxury brand) in Yahoo Auto article. Increase of 92% compared to last year. Interesting.

And the Avalon it's based on is just ahead of it at almost 108% increase!

Toyota/Lexus and their dealers have to be pleased something like 12k ES and Avalon's sold in June alone.

You have to also remember that the Lexus brand is not suppose to be the high seller compared to Toyota. But not bad for a luxury class brand and model.

An interesting fact to juxtapose with so many negative reviews on CL coming from prev gen owners.

The ES has been Lexus best selling car and 2nd in sales to the RX for years. The 2007-2012 sold in similar numbers when new with only one model. The new gen continues that trend. They obviously know the entry level luxury car market.

With the redesigned ES, and older RX model, I wonder if sales of the ES exceeded the RX?

Sales in North America for June/YTD:

8,647/46,818 RX
5,680/33/493 ES

The RX sells in big numbers even with an older model out there.

Sales of the RX almost 2X than ES? Wow, I didn't know the RX is that popular.

Impressive when you consider the TL, Infiniti G, 3-series, and Audi A4 are all flat to down. C-Series and ES are clearly picking up market share.

That said, some of this is riding Toyota/Lex's huge lead in hybrids. Can't say I'm ready to trust a hybrid from anyone else.

Also will be interesting to see how '14 goes with the Acura TLX and Infiniti Q50 launches. C-Series already pulls in a younger buyer than the ES, and the Q50 will have the interior tech that under 50s like me expect now, and which is severely lacking in the ES. No touch screen, but a CD changer? in 2013? Really?

I believe Lexus hybrids account for only 25% of their ES production, so the sales increase is more likely due to to new and improved model, lower end of the production year sales and reduced production of Lexus and Toyota due to the tsunami in Japan.

Toyota and hence Lexus has been the leader in hybrid technology with longevity on their side. I don't see any change in the near future, and have confidence in their products.
