TEG - I recall you posted some sales figures for Lexus a while back, and it is probably very early in the game but do you have any sales numbers of CL S Types vs IS 300 sales...I am curious which car/brand is more successful in the eyes of the consumer.

I hope you got the juice.

Come one that is a no brainer. Acura is no where close in overall sales to LEXUS. Lexus could be selling turd mobiles and still out seel Acura!

hey hammerheads

i think agent is looking for is300 vs. cl-s specifically.

carpoint.com does not have 2001 cl sales volume data yet.

no accounting for some folks' tastes

Well, in terms of overall worth, Toyota is worth ~154B. Honda is worth ~34B. And for more comparisons: GM ~30B. Cisco ~350B. Microsoft 291B.

I should hope that the IS300 is outselling the Integra. Look how long the Integra has been out!!! The new Integra will be a 2002 model? That means current Integra was out from 1994-2001 (8 years).Thats two model lives for typical Honda cars. After 1998 I thought a new 1999 model would come out and it didn't. I think most people became sick of the model. I dont know but I think for the last 2-3 years they should have changed the integra to have the Japanese styled lights. I think it would have increased sales. But who knows. At least in Japan people were able to have the choice to get the round lights or 1 piece light. But I think that sales on the new model will increase when it come out in 2002. Its cheap and will be a nice car.

I don't have any of that info...

All I know is this -
Lexus planned to sell around 9,000 IS300s between July-December 2000
and about 25,000+ in 2001

I am sure that the Acura Integra sells many more since it is a lower cost, higher volume target market.

I don't think Lexus plans to sell more IS300s than BMW sells 3 series - just take a chunk (say 1/3) of their market over time.

I have no idea about the CL-S. Maybe sort of similar to the IS300???

Lexus must have sold more than 9000 ISes already. Mine was #6000-something, and I got it less than 1.5 months after they started selling. What # was yours TEG ?

--k

[From TEG: Mine is number 118XX - (from the last 5 digits of the VIN) - but the 9000 sales number was for USA only - the VIN#s might include models sold in other countries like Canada/Mexico/etc. ]

Take out the RX and Lexus is behind Acura and BMW in terms of car sales. Why is it people get so excited about these SUV's?

Even though the VINs are over 10,000 now - there may be less than 9,000 IS300s in the USA - it is possible that some of the VIN#s are going to other countries...
