Is Lexus Owned by Toyota?

Toyota does own the Lexus lineup, but the two brands operate independently with headquarters in separate cities. Toyota is headquartered in Toyota City, while Lexus remains in Nagoya. Lexus has had its own design, engineering, and manufacturing facilities since the 2000s. How did Lexus begin?

  • 1983: Project F1, or Flagship One, was created by Toyota in response to a challenge proposed by chairman Eiji Toyoda: “Who can build the world’s best car?”
  • 1989: After years of market research in the Laguna Beach area and others, Project F1 resulted in the launch of the luxury Lexus brand with a network of over 80 dealerships in the U.S. The Lexus LS 400 debuted with a 4.0L V8 engine to major success.
  • 2019: Decades after its creation, the ten-millionth Lexus model was sold.

What Country is Lexus From?

The Lexus brand is primarily stationed in Japan with large manufacturing plants in Chūbu and Kyūshū. However, the Lexus RX 330 was the first Lexus to be built outside of Japan with manufacturing in Ontario, Canada as of 2003. Where else can you find Lexus around the world?

  • Kitakyushu, Japan: CT, HS, and RX
  • Miyawaka, Japan: ES, IS, RX, NX, and UX
  • Susono, Japan: SC
  • Tahara, Japan: LS, GS, IS, GX, RX, and NX
