Four Honda Models Hold Retail Sales Leadership

Sales Graph
11/22/2013 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Through the first nine months of 2013, consumers nationwide have propelled Honda’s four highest-volume models to the top of their respective segments, with the Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey each holding the top spot in retail sales to U.S. car buyers. The Honda brand has also achieved retail market share of 16 percent during this period, according to the latest Polk registration data available through IHS Automotive. Retail sales are an important measure of product appeal, brand competitiveness and real sales momentum.

Moreover, Honda is consistently among the lowest in incentive spending in the industry, further demonstrating strong customer demand for Honda products in the marketplace.

Honda Accord

  • Top-selling retail light vehicle to younger buyers aged 18-34.

Executive Comment:

“Our retail sales leadership and the lowest incentive spending of any major automaker demonstrate that the core strength of the Honda brand is based on real demand from our customers,” said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This retail sales leadership also means something to the customer because it is a major contributor to the low ownership cost and high resale value of Honda and Acura products, something we know that our customers appreciate and value.”
