Honda Starts 2015 with Record January Sales
The so-called “Year of Honda” is off to a pretty good start, as the brand sets a monthly sales record in January 2015 with 90,202 vehicles sold. That marks an 11.6% increase over American Honda’s January 2014 sales.
America’s best-selling SUV in 2014, the Honda CR-V continued its dominance by moving 23,211 units last month, up a whopping 27.3% over the CR-V’s sales in January of last year. The Honda Fit set a new January record as well, up 85.8% with 5,802 vehicles sold. The Pilot nearly doubled in popularity, increasing 97.9% (!) for a grand total of 44,271 units.
Thanks to the Pilot and CR-V’s successes, Honda light trucks had their best January ever, with 44,271 vehicles sold.
“The new year is off to a strong start with three core models selling at record pace, and this is only the beginning,” said Jeff Conrad, American Honda division’s senior vice president and general manager. “With an all-new HR-V crossover coming in a few months, an all-new Pilot debuting at the Chicago Auto Show next week and more big news on the horizon, this is going to be an epic year for Honda.”
