American Honda Sets New April Sales Record: Honda Division Posts Best Ever April Sales

 
May 3, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • American Honda sedan and light truck sales push April sales up 14.4 percent to new record
  • Honda Division posts best ever April with strong car and truck sales
  • Acura Division marks April increase on record sales of RDX
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported a new April sales record of 148,829 Honda and Acura vehicles, an increase of 14.4 percent for the month. Year to date American Honda sales reached 506,532, up 9.2 percent. The Honda Division set a new monthly record with 132,623 units sold in April, an increase of 15.1 percent compared to April 2015 with year to date sales up 10.5 percent. Acura Division sales totaled 16,206, an increase of 9 percent in April with year to date sales reaching 54,081.
 
Honda
With strong and balanced demand across the lineup, Honda broke several records in April including posting best ever April sales results and setting a new light truck record. Honda cars also notched healthy gains with record sales of the all-new Civic along with strong Accord sales.
  • Civic continues to dominate the compact car segment with sixth consecutive month-over-month sales increases, up 24.5 percent to a new April record of 35,331.
  • Accord maintained strong demand as April sales totaled 31,526. The model experienced a 15.7 percent increase compared to April 2015 sales.
  • Honda light truck sales set a new April record of 60,372 units. Odyssey minivan sales totaled 13,047 sales in April, an increase of 17.6 percent, while Pilot boasted sales of 11,370, despite tight inventories.
"The strong cadence of new Honda cars and light trucks coming to market is clearly resonating with customers," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "With the all-new Ridgeline truck coming to market this summer, we will add another segment to our lineup and further accelerate our strong sales momentum in 2016." 
 
Acura
Acura strengthened its position in the luxury vehicle segment as the brand experienced strong sedan and record light truck sales in April. The Acura light truck lineup posted its best April sales on record sales of the RDX luxury SUV. Acura sedans racked up sales of over 5,500 units on the strength of the ILX gateway sedan and TLX performance luxury sedan.
  • The RDX continues to show month-over-month sales increases, leading all Acura models in April and setting a new all-time monthly sales record of 5,905 units, an increase of 48.7 percent in April.
  • The ILX gateway sports sedan continues to catch the attention of Millennial buyers as April sales totaled 1,633 for the month. The ILX has captured a higher rate of under 35 year old buyers than any other vehicle in the entry-luxury sedan segment since 2010.
"Acura performance sedans and SUVs continue to gain momentum and market share in their segments," said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura division. "Our lineup will further strengthen this summer when the restyled and reengineered MDX hits Acura dealerships."

      Ever since the S2000 was discontinued back in 2009, many people wished for Honda to do an affordable sports car. Some of those folks work for Honda. Case in point is Stephen Collins, director of Honda Australia who told CarAdvice that he would like to see something like this make a return.
      “We’ve said it a number of times: we really want to dial up the sportiness of our range and our brand. NSX is one part of that, Type R is another. But if anything else becomes available, we’d really be chasing that pretty hard,” said Collins.
      “Type R is a hot hatch and if there’s another type of sports car that becomes available to us, say if it was a convertible or something that could come in at around $30,000 (list price), that would be very desirable for us.”
      When asked about S660 roadster, Collins shot down this idea.
      “The S660 is a beautiful little sports car but it was only really designed for Japanese domestic market,” he said. “To get it homologated and up to a standard for the Australian market would be difficult. It’s also very constrained by production and, unfortunately, it’s not made for export. But if a small, sporty car like that became available to Honda Australia we’d definitely stick up our hand for it. Sadly, the S660 is not an option for us.”

      The only way you can purchase a Honda Civic Type R is the fully loaded Touring trim with adaptive dampers, navigation, LED headlights, etc. Possibly, you might have to pay a 'market adjustment' price - i.e. a dealer adding a few grand to the price to make a quick buck. But 2018 could see Honda introduce a base version of the Type R.
      The Truth About Cars uncovered NHTSA certification papers filed by American Honda for the 2018 model year. The papers reveal two Civic Type R models, 'Type R' and 'Touring'. Both models have the same engine code - K20C1 which corresponds to the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. 
      As we reported back in June, Honda is considering adding more Civic Type R variants to "broaden the audience and keep sales fresh." One way to that is to introduce a lower-cost model. Honda already sells one in other markets that lose out on the navigation system, parking sensors, and LED lighting.
