"Leveraging our manufacturing flexibility to increase our light truck supply continues to pay off for us," said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the Automobile Division & general manager of Honda Sales. "The Acura RDX and MDX combined forces to deliver the best August of all time for Acura light trucks. RDX also continued its strong sales pace, achieving a third consecutive month of record sales since hitting the market in June." "For Honda, Pilot benefited from increased light truck production and recorded a 60 percent increase in year-over-year sales," added Arcangeli.

 





BRAND REPORT

 


Sales Highlights

While supply constraints on select models restrained passenger car sales, Honda’s light truck portfolio lead the charge by way of the refreshed 2019 Pilot, segment-leading Odyssey minivan and always hot-selling CR-V.

  • Riding a wave of rapidly growing popularity, Pilot sales jumped 60% on 15,332 units – up 41.3 percent for the year toward an all-time record.
  • CR-V delivered again in August with sales of 34,610 units, an increase of 11.8%, on track to set a new annual sales mark.
  • Electrified vehicles sales topped 5,000 units for the 2nd straight month, with Accord Hybrid, Insight, and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid setting a best-ever month.
  • The #1 retail-selling minivan, Odyssey gained 13.5% on sales of 9,887 units.

Model Notes

Awards keep rolling in for the 2018 North American Car of the Year, as the 2018 Accord recently earned the J.D. Power APEAL award for midsize cars

Now with an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating under its belt, the refreshed Honda Pilot is poised to remain one of America’s fastest growing SUVs.

 

BRAND REPORT
