Hondas are selling like hotcakes – in fact, many Honda vehicles saw their best figures ever this year. In particular, the Honda CR-V had its best-ever April, rising 3.4% since March. The Honda Fit and Pilot also saw jumps in sales, proving how popular the new lineup really is.
According to Honda, 2015 Honda Sales numbers actually show that trucks and SUVs are on the rise. That’s why affordable vehicles like the CR-V and Pilot are selling so well – customers recognize that you get more bang for your buck with these models compared to competitors.
“With the CR-V and current Pilot selling so well, and the HR-V and all-new Pilot soon entering the market, our truck lineup is set to drive a very strong 2015 for the Honda brand,” said Jeff Conrad, general manager at Honda. “Though the scales are definitely tipped toward trucks at the moment, we’re really pleased at how Fit, Civic and Accord continue to outperform their rivals in the retail marketplace.”
What does this mean for you? Besides seeing more Hondas around, the increase in sales means that Honda will most likely put more money into crossover technology. Although we might not see this pay off for a few years, one thing is for sure: Honda is quickly becoming America’s favorite automaker.
