In 2023, Lexus India intends to expand both its reach and its product line. It has already expanded to 16 cities with 29 outlets, covering almost 80% of the market, and it is targeting another six or seven cities. Even though it was originally planned to go on sale in March, Lexus will launch the RX SUV by the end of May in order to meet the growing demand for SUVs.

Additionally, Lexus will homologate its flagship LM 500h luxury van, which was on display at this year’s Auto Expo. The updated LC 500 coupe will also be available throughout the year for those who enjoy speed.

“Lexus Will Be Able To Achieve This Target By end Of Year”- Soni

“We are undertaking rapid network expansion and taking steps to broaden the portfolio. “We are adding different body styles – SUVs, vans, and sportscars to bring in a different customer base and profile of buyers,” adds Soni. “The brand portfolio was heavily skewed in favor of locally assembled sedans.”

Lexus India was only able to fulfill approximately 40% of its total order book as a result of the global chip shortage, and the current waiting period for Lexus models ranges from three months to twelve months. According to Soni, “The availability has improved to almost 80% of our average order book with the supply scenario much better.” We should be able to deliver automobiles significantly faster than last year. Model availability ensures long-term market share growth in a highly competitive market with numerous alternatives for potential buyers.

Lexus was a latecomer to the luxury car market in India. In its fifth year of operation in 2022, it was able to break into the four-digit range. With plans to double production, it will be closer to 4-5 percent of the market.

Lexus India Is Aiming For 2000 Units

The management of Lexus India declined to provide specific sales figures, but those in the know predict that the company will probably sell between 2,000 and 2,200 units this year. It is considering expanding local assembly as volumes and the network both expand rapidly.

Soni responds that Lexus was able to obtain some critical feedback on how the product can be adapted for the Indian conditions and requirements of the local buyers from the road test of the electric UX that was conducted roughly a year ago when asked if the company intends to bring EVs to India.
