  3. Thirty years ago, the Lexus brand was founded with a commitment to deliver standards of customer service the retail motor industry had never witnessed before. Not only did it keep its promise, it has continued to raise the bar for excellence This week its success has been witnessed in its complete dominance of the Auto Express 2019 Driver Power survey of Britain’s dealer networks. Lexus has retained its top ranking for a third successive year with a 92.91 per cent overall score, taking first place in six out of the survey’s seven categories: dealer facilities, availability of a courtesy car, communication, standard of work and speed to complete work. In the seventh, value for money, it was a respectable fifth out of 28 brands. Reporting the survey results, Auto Express said: “The scores that Lexus posts in taking the top spot are nothing short of ludicrously good. It’s not just the raw data that impresses: turning to the comments Lexus owners entered in our survey reveals compliment after compliment, with complaints few and far between. It would be almost impossible for an organisation to do better.” Lexus’s nearest challenger was its sister brand, Toyota, which also performed strongly across the board and registered an 88.54 per cent score. The survey results were based on the experiences of thousands of motorists and their opinions of the quality of work, service and value for money delivered by their franchised retailer. Earlier this year Driver Power also acclaimed Lexus as Britain’s best car manufacturer, and individual Lexus models collected no fewer than seven category awards. Ewan Shepherd, Director of Lexus in the UK said: “This latest result recognises the fantastic work of all the people across our retailer network and their commitment to always doing the very best for our customers. The fact their efforts have taken us to an even higher level this year shows that at Lexus, nothing is taken for granted. Every day our retailers are working to find even better ways of giving our customers amazing experiences.”
  4. One year on from the launch of the Government’s Road to Zero transport strategy, Toyota and Lexus are helping power a transformation in cleaner mobility in the UK with record, accelerating growth in self-charging hybrid car sales Toyota (GB) PLC, the business representing both brands in the UK, is witnessing unprecedented demand from both private and business customers who are keen to embrace the real-world benefits of hybrid power. Sales volumes and growth during the first half of this year have continued to reach new heights. On the back of a 76 per cent increase in new hybrid vehicle sales during the past two years, Toyota figures are already up a further 10 per cent year-on-year so far in 2019. The order bank currently stands at around 23.000 vehicles – a level never witnessed before, with demand outpacing supply. The statistics are just as exceptional for Lexus, with more than 99 per cent of its new car sales being hybrids. This year the luxury brand is on course for record-breaking results, looking to a rise in its total volume of at least 22 per cent compared to 2018’s performance. Orders have soared to their highest level yet, with customer demand having exceeded supply for the past two years. Sales so far this year are up by 18.9 per cent on last year, with the order bank standing at 3,535 vehicles – a rise of 153 per cent. There are multiple reasons for this astonishing success. Toyota has more experience in self-charging hybrid technology than any other manufacturer and has made constant improvements since it debuted the concept more than 20 years ago with the introduction of the original Prius. The result has been ever more impressive gains in fuel economy and low emissions, at the same as air quality, pollution and sustainability have become critical concerns for society and the subject of increasingly stringent legislation. At the same time, Toyota has made the benefits of hybrid available to an increasingly wide market, adapting it for use in all kinds of vehicles, from the Yaris supermini to the RAV4 SUV. Equally, Lexus has proved the inherent quality and flexibility of the technology, applying it to models as diverse as the new UX compact SUV and flagship LC 500h coupe. This demonstrates how Toyota has engineered its hybrid models not just for environmental performance, but also for a more engaging driving experience. The technology has also proven its inherent strength and reliability, with millions of miles driven by Toyota and Lexus hybrids all around the world. Paul Van der Burgh, Toyota GB President and Managing Director, said: “The recent headlines about market setbacks for alternative fuel vehicles in the UK do not give the full picture. Toyota and Lexus hybrids are prospering as never before, as customers recognise and appreciate the authentic benefits they offer when it comes to fuel economy, low emissions and a powertrain choice that is eminently practical and requires no compromise in terms of everyday convenience, reliability and genuinely enjoyable driving quality. We have succeeded in making our hybrid technology a mainstream choice and its fast-rising popularity will make a significant contribution to achieving longer-term environmental targets.” Just as the UK Government has set out its roadmap for action in the Road to Zero, Toyota worldwide is making strong progress towards reaching the ambitious targets of its own Environmental Challenge 2050. This includes a plan to reduce CO2 emissions from its vehicles by 90 per cent by 2050, compared to 2010 levels – a challenge in which its hybrid technology strengths are an enabler for developing even cleaner and more efficient vehicle power systems.
  5. Lexus maintained steady growth in Europe during the first half of 2019, with sales increasing by five per cent on last year’s figures to reach 40,450 units in a premium market that slightly declined overall (-2 per cent) Significant growth was recorded in key markets, including the UK (+8 per cent), Italy (+51 per cent), Germany (+33 per cent), Spain (+19 per cent), Poland (+13 per cent) and France (+12 per cent). The growth has been driven principally by two all-new models: the UX compact SUV and the ES luxury saloon. After just five months in showrooms, the UX has already amassed 8,532 sales, confirming the positive market response to Lexus’s debut model in the fast-growing premium compact SUV segment. The ES recorded the largest growth, with sales up by 387 per cent at 3,012 units following the introduction of the new generation model and the extension of sales across the whole of Europe2 (including the UK for the first time) at the end of 2018. With 28,006 self-charging hybrid cars sold in Europe in the first six months of 2019, Lexus is a leading player in vehicle electrification. Self-charging hybrids now represent 95 per cent of Lexus new car sales in Western and Central Europe. The NX mid-size SUV remains the brand’s best-seller in Europe, with 11,699 sales, while the total for the larger RX model reached 8,382 units. 1 Lexus Europe sales include the European Union countries, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland, as well as eastern markets: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Caucasus region, Turkey and Israel. 2 The previous generation ES’s European sales were confined to Russia and eastern markets only.
