American Honda Continues Record Sales Pace in January

  • American Honda sets new January records for total vehicle and total truck sales
  • Honda Division also sets new January benchmark for total vehicle sales
  • Honda trucks jump 30.2 percent for best-ever January
  • Honda CR-V smashes previous January record as it gains 52 percent for month
  • Acura trucks remain strong with RDX topping last year

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported total January sales of 106,380 Honda and Acura vehicles, an increase of 5.9 percent over January 2016 and a new record for the month. Total Honda Division sales as well as Honda truck sales also set new January records, with total Division sales rising 7.7 percent on sales of 97,178 and trucks up 30.2 percent on sales of 51,337 units. Acura Division sales totaled 9,202 vehicles in January, a decrease of 10.2 percent.

Honda
After posting a 3rd consecutive sales record in 2016, the Honda Division started 2017 with yet more monthly records, gaining 7.7 percent as cars and trucks continued to sell strongly. CR-V and HR-V led the way in January, pushing Honda trucks to another new record for the month.

  • Honda Division sets new January mark, rising 7.7 percent on sales of 97,178 units.
  • Honda trucks also set a new January record, jumping 30.2 percent on sales of 51,337.
  • CR-V smashed its previous January best, gaining 52.5 percent on sales of 29,287 vehicles.
  • HR-V sales also gained sharply, rising to 5,689 in January for a gain of 36.2 percent versus last year.
  • Accord and Fit sales remained strong in January.

"Our conservative approach to growth was criticized when the industry was growing faster but it is clearly paying dividends now as industry sales are flattening," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "A steady cadence of products and disciplined sales tactics is the right approach for customers and dealers."

Acura
Acura brand sales remained fairly steady in January, with Acura light trucks demonstrating continued strength as RDX gained ground and MDX maintained a solid pace, even before dual sourcing of Acura's three-row luxury SUV begins this spring in Ohio, promising increased supply. 

  • RDX sales were up 3.2 percent for the month, with 3,202 vehicles sold in January.
  • NSX notched sales of 50 units for the month.

"In a month marked by major storms across the country, Acura maintained a steady pace with trucks leading the way," said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura division. "And a strong showing of the Acura NSX GT3 in its debut at Daytona last weekend just adds to the momentum building around the Acura brand."

      Almost a year after Buick introduced their Avenir subbrand, it has proven to be a big success for the brand's big crossover.
      According to Automotive News, one out of every four Enclaves sold is the top-line Avenir. That's pretty impressive when you consider that the base price for the Avenir is $54,495. GM says demand from dealers is outstripping their supplies, despite a new investment earlier this year.
      Sales of the new Enclave have risen 15 percent in the first half of this year, and the average transaction price has risen $5,000 - putting it in line with the likes of the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.
      "We saw the need to provide even more for Enclave, and it was a direct result of sales of the first generation. They were asking for even more options and equipment," said Jace Stokes, manager of product marketing for the Enclave.
      Stokes went onto say that the success of Avenir for the Enclave has them thinking about what to do for the next-generation of the subbrand. 
      "We certainly have more technology planned. I think next generation is where we're going to push Avenir further."
