Lexus plans to offer nine new or updated products this year

Lexus LF-Lc

2011 hasn’t been the best year for Lexus on the North American market. The world crisis combined with the massive earthquake that shook Japan to its core in March 2011 hurt the company’s sales and made it surrender its 11-year reign as the best-selling luxury brand in the United States. However, Lexus has plans to make a major comeback, announcing plans to offer nine new or updated products to hopefully increase their sales by about 21%. This translates to 240,000 units compared to 2011’s 198,552 units.

"We will grow more than any other luxury brand this year. Our base plan is 240,000. But we think we can exceed that by a pretty good margin," said Mark Templin, Lexus General Manager.

The list of new models includes the GS 350 and GS 450h sport sedans arriving in February, followed by reworked versions of the ES 350 , the IS 250 and 350 , the LS 460 , and the 600h . The LX SUV will also be refreshed in 2012.

But the biggest news for 2012 is theLF-LC Hybrid Concept shown at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. This concept will be immediately followed by a production version priced somewhere between $100,000 and $130,000.

It’s a very good plan that Lexus will be launching nine products this year. I’ll surely keep in touch with these event. Moreover, the concept looks like the body of a robot. It’s very stylish on the front bumper.

This concept design is well-fascinated thus making it a more classy one. The front design feels like a robot in order to transform but its just an illusion by me.

The Lexus plan is a good step to have at this time especially now that the trends is flowing and the market is competitive. Keep it low dudes. Your car is better than I thought.

Luxurious Lexus finally made their upgrades. Comeback plan is quite enough. The amounting figures too high but possible to make. Good luck to Lexus and keep our waiting worth-while.

That was amazing! With this in mind of Lexus company, I am sure that they can get what they have lost in the previous year. Surely enough, your

fans are looking forward to see some updates on your car line-up.

Lexus has a great plan and I am hoping that this will succeed. That range of between $100,000 and $130,000 for the car-to-be is pretty huge amount of money. That’s why I am somehow pretty sure that this is going to be a nice upgrade or better invention.

That upgrade should be done fast so they can get everything the had lost for the past. I do believe that their plan will succeed. Well, we’ll all
be waiting about the update of this news.

The first part of the car that captures me most is the wheels, very unique and striking at its best. This concept design is well-fascinated thus making it a more classy one. The front design feels like a robot in order to transform but its just an illusion by me. Kidding aside. A totally impressive design.
