Lexus Owner's Manuals
Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese carmaker Toyota. The Lexus brand is sold in more than 70 countries globally and has become Japan's biggest-selling make of premium cars. It has placed amongst the 10 biggest Japanese global brands in business value. Lexus is headquartered in Nagoya, Japan. Operational hubs are found in Brussels, Belgium, and the United States in Plano, Texas.
Founded at around the same time as Japanese competitors Honda and Nissan built their Acura and Infiniti luxury divisions respectively, Lexus began from a corporate project to produce a new premium sedan, code-named F1, which started in 1983 and finished with the launch of the Lexus LS in 1989. Afterward, the division added sedan, coupé, convertible, and SUV variants. Lexus did not exist as a brand in its home market till 2005, and all cars sold globally as Lexus from 1989 to 2005 were delivered in Japan under the Toyota name and an equivalent model name.
After the 2000s, Lexus has expanded sales outside its biggest market, the United States. The division introduced dealerships in the Japanese home market in 2005, becoming the initial Japanese premium car brand to launch in its country of origin. The brand was later included in Southeast Asia, Latin America, Europe, and other regions.
