Lexus Has Now Sold 10 Million Vehicles Globally
Today, Lexus announced its 10 millionth vehicle sold, a landmark achievement that came shortly after a strong 2018 year-end sales performance with Lexus achieving multiple best-ever sales goals around the globe.
In addition, the brand that pioneered the world’s first luxury hybrid-electric vehicle in 2005, and offers 11 electrified models globally, surpassed the 1.45-million-unit mark in self-charging hybrid vehicles sold worldwide. Lexus hybrid vehicle sales jumped nearly 20 percent in 2018 from the prior year, a result that underscores the brand’s heritage with, and commitment to, electrification.
The brand announced today that 698,330 vehicles were sold worldwide during the 2018 calendar year, representing a 4.5 percent increase over calendar year 2017 (668,515 units). A solid array of luxury utility vehicles such as the RX and NX, the LC and LS flagships, along with the all-new ES and the first-ever UX, combined to lead the global luxury lifestyle brand to its best-ever year of sales.
