Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., reported today that August marks the first time in its 43-year history in the U.S. that the company has surpassed the one-million sales mark before the end of the third quarter. Toyota's Lexus Division also reports that August is the first time an import luxury brand has surpassed 20,000 units sold in a single month.

Both TMS sales divisions posted impressive sales compared to last August. The Toyota Division recorded sales of 126,949 units, up 4.1 percent while the Lexus Division posted record-breaking sales with 21,280 units, an increase of 20.0 percent over the same period last year.

The Lexus Division's record-setting month saw both passenger car and light truck sales breaking the 10,000-unit mark. Lexus passenger car sales were fueled by the popular ES 300, with sales of 4,375 units, an increase of 8.1 percent over last year. The all-new IS 300 sport sedan sales continued to soar with 2,998 units. Sales of RX 300
and LX 470 sport utility vehicles climbed to 9,117 and 1,333 units, up 30.0 and 16.5 percent, respectively, marking a best-ever sales month for Lexus light trucks.
