“One year after the global pandemic began to take its toll on the auto industry, it’s great to return to form with such strong March sales for both the Honda and Acura brands,” said Dave Gardner, executive vice president of National Operations at American Honda. “With all-time record sales for our all-new Acura MDX flagship and record March performance for the Honda HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Ridgeline, our light truck lineups are leading the way. In the near term, parts supply may challenge production pace but existing vehicle stocks can meet current demand.”
