Lexus is on track to achieve record sales of its NX SUV this year following unprecedented demand in the nine months to the end of September.

The sales momentum for the NX Line is expected to gain pace later this month when the range receives a comprehensive update.

Official sales figures for September, released today, show deliveries of the NX Line are ahead by the narrowest of margins compared with the record-setting total delivered at the same stage last year.

Lexus sales will also benefit from the October arrival of a freshened line-up of the brand’s premium hybrid CT 200h hatch.

Updates for the NX and CT are particularly significant as these two model ranges account for almost half of the Lexus sales volume in Australia.

Lexus Australia chief executive Peter McGregor said customers and dealers were eagerly anticipating the arrival of the two updated model lines.

“The success of the NX and CT illustrate the astuteness of the Lexus strategy of developing a broad portfolio that encompasses both passenger cars and SUVs,” Mr McGregor said.

“Updates to these two models will ensure Lexus mounts a strong sales push for the balance of the year and is well positioned for a brisk start in 2018.

“The arrival of these latest models could not be better timed with NX benefiting from a surge in SUV demand and the CT 200h heading towards its strongest annual result in five years,” Mr McGregor added.
