Lexus Sold 28 Percent More this April

Although it remains a brand for the unconventional luxury buyers who consider Mercedes-Benz or BMW too mainstream, Lexus managed to push more numbers last month compared to April 2013 on both standard basis. Still, we hope that day when douches will buy RCs instead of 4 Series never comes.

Lexus division posted April sales of 23,165 units, representing a 23.1 percent increase on a daily selling rate and a 28 percent increase on raw-volume basis, both year-over-year.

"The luxury segment has improved at a faster pace than the overall general industry through each of the first four months of the year," said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager.  "The new IS and GX more than doubled sales in April compared to last year and six of eight Lexus vehicle lines posted gains for the month."

The front-wheel-drive Lexus ES is still sales leader, with 6,036 units sold this April, representing a 17.8 percent increase, followed by the IS model with 3,780 units, which also counts in for a 110.4 percent increase.

The GS came third, with only 1,500 units sold making for a 21.4% increase, while in the SUV category, the RX thrones at 8,130 cars sold representing a 15.3 percent increase, followed by the GX with 1,639 and the LX behemoth with only 309.
