 LEXUS JANUARY SALES DOUBLE FROM LUXURY TAX DEPRESSED '91 LEVEL
 TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexus sales more than doubled in January from the luxury tax depressed levels of January 1991, according to sales figures released today by the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. Inc.
 Total Lexus sales of 7,046 were up 125 percent. Sales of the 2,517 LS 400s rose 44 percent and the ES 300, with sales of 2,438, was up 76.4 percent from ES 250 levels of January '91. Sport coupe sales totaled 2,091 for the month.
 It was the fourth best sales month ever for Lexus and came on the heels of the division's best month ever in December.
 "Last January the tax just about stopped luxury car sales during the month," said Dave Illingworth, group vice president and general manager. "This year sales have returned to a more normal level and there's some indication the overall market may be improving."
