While Lexus hasn’t reliable anything, there’s flourishing conjecture that a brand’s ES sedan will eventually reinstate a GS. The model’s sales have trended downward given 2015, going fromÂ 23,117 U.S. deliveries that year to justÂ 7,773 in 2017.
The code hasn’t announced any skeleton to refurbish it. Considering a fourth era has been around given 2011, you’d consider Lexus would have pronounced something by now. But a association â€” like many oppulance manufacturers â€” is rapt with relocating application vehicles. There’s now a three-row RX, and a smaller UX should assistance attract a younger demographic while permitting Lexus to dally in a subscription-based sales model.
If it succeeds, a IS could be a subsequent car in a brand’s lineup to be tied to a tree and shot.Â
While a predestine of a GS is most guaranteed (the association has already forsaken it in Europe), a IS does improved business overall. Still, annual sales have forsaken any year given 2014 and a brand’s newÂ U.S. ubiquitous manager,Â David Christ, recently told Automotive News that Lexus is deliberation a destiny of both models.
That said, he also reiterated a company’s progressing guarantee not to misuse consumers who cite sedans and settled Lexus has high hopes for a ES. “There are still a lot of oppulance cars being sold,” he said, “and we’re not going to desert that market.”
However, it’s that marketplace that will foreordain only how loyal a matter that is. GS sales are roughly pardonable during this indicate and a IS has mislaid about half a strength. Both models are flourishing aged and there’s no replacements scheduled that we know of. That’s going to outcome in a brand’s sedan lineup looking intensely lean, and it’s tough to suppose an blast of sales for a RC or LC coupes as a resultÂ â€” though it’s a good thought.[Image: Lexus]
