The summer is over, but that doesn’t mean we have to forget all the fun we had. Honda is sure thinking about it. In fact, it was the best August sales ever for Honda’s truck and SUV lineup. Honda reported record sales for its trucks, especially the Honda Ridgeline.
With 66,802 units sold in August, Honda truck sales rose 4.5%, when compared to last year. Leading those sales was the popular CR-V, which set its second consecutive all-time record. CR-V sales climbed 5% with sales of 36,517 units in August. Another big leader was the new HR-V, which had sales of 7,580 vehicles, a jump of 66%.
“Our continued success with strong sales of both passenger cars and light trucks demonstrates once again that the key to great sales is great product,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “As we continue with our rapid cadence of new models, our focus will remain on selling vehicles one at a time to individual customers.”
Two other popular choices for the month were the Civic and Fit. The best-selling Civic saw a sales increase of 2.4% with 32,807 sales. The fit, on the other hand, had a massive increase of 85.1% with sales of 5,370 vehicles.
