Japanese luxury marque posts 15.8 per cent increase for the month, bolstered by addition of UX crossover and strong performances by SUV range.

Lexus Australia has continued its growth this past month, setting an all-time sales record for the month of January with 705 registrations.

The result is a 15.8 per cent improvement on January 2018's figure of 609 units, largely bolstered by the introduction of the all-new UX baby crossover (pictured above), which added 116 units.

Of the 705 Lexus vehicles registered during January, a whopping 568 were from the company's SUV lines.

Leading the charge was the NX (269 units), though the model line was down 6.6 per cent on the same month in 2018. However, the RX saw a 25.2 per cent increase in volume with 154 registrations, while the flagship LX's 29-unit result is the best it has achieved in January for 16 years.

Just about all of Lexus' passenger car range fell in January, bar the new-generation ES sedan which added 25 registrations to the tally – a 108.3 per cent increase on last year, though off a small base admittedly.

CEO for Lexus Australia, Scott Thompson, said the company should see another year of growth in 2019, which would achieve yet another record Down Under.

"Lexus has the potential this year to deliver in excess of 10,000 vehicles for the first time and it will also be our seventh year of sales growth in eight years," he said.
