The LS400 was Lexus’ genesis. Lexus Canada isn’t typically the dominant force in luxury car sales Lexus USA manages to be, and evidence of that fact can be seen in sales of the current Lexus LS460 (and LS600h). While the Lexus LS managed to overcome Toyota’s turmoil to be the best-selling large luxury car in America last month, Canadians favour more expensive alternatives.
What then will May’s Sales Stats prove? The Lexus LS is currently under a stop sale order from Toyota. The Good Car Guy already wrote about the Top 5 Less Expensive Lexus LS Alternatives. And April was a far more successful month for the makers of the BMW 7-Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and Porsche Panamera, at least in Canada. The availability of a brand new Jaguar XJ and a brand new Audi A8 could lift their totals in May, too.
