Lexus accelerates to 250,000 hybrid SUV sales in Europe

Lexus hybrid range

UK demand has helped Lexus pass the milestone of 250,000 hybrid SUV sales in Europe.

More than 25% of the total sales were achieved in the UK, boosted since the introduction of the RX 400h in 2005 – the world’s first luxury hybrid vehicle.

Since that ground-breaking innovation, Lexus has introduced new models and constantly improved the performance of its self-charging hybrid technology.

With more vehicles to choose from and growing customer demand for electrified powertrains that offer superior efficiency, growth in annual sales volumes has accelerated.

UK customers have responded enthusiastically, with sales of the RX reaching 35,825 units (127,203 Europe-wide). Now in its fourth generation, the RX range has expanded to include a specially designed seven-seat version, the RX L.

The mid-size NX, launched in 2014, has gained 23,045 hybrid sales (Europe 101,137), while the most recent addition to the line-up, the UX compact SUV, has enjoyed a strong start since its arrival in 2019 with 4,184 sales (Europe 22,171). The UX is now also the brand’s current best-selling model.
