American Honda Achieves All-Time Sales Record in 2015
2015 sales numbers for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. were announced earlier this week. With Honda and Acura sales totaling 1,586,551 vehicles, the company beat the previous annual sales record, set back in 2007, by three percent. Honda Division sales reached 1,409,386 units, breaking last year’s annual record by 2.6 percent.
“While we are excited about the all-time sales record, we continue to have incredible momentum driven by the relentless cadence of new and successful products we introduced in 2015 that will give the Honda brand tremendous energy going into the new year,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “With a similar pace of new products coming this year, we’re anticipating a very robust 2016.”
CR-V, the bestselling SUV in America, lead the way, setting its own annual sales record of 345,647, beating the previous mark by 3.2 percent. The brand’s core models, CR-V, Accord, and Civic, combined to break the one million mark for the third year in a row.
“What better way to celebrate the “Year of Honda” than with an all-time automobile sales record,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We are grateful to our customers who embraced our entire product lineup and are the true power behind the Honda brand.”
