American Honda Motor Co., Inc. reports that both Honda & Acura vehicles ended 2016 at a record high. Breaking all-time annual sales records, the numbers rose 6.4% from 2015’s record. Combined, the trucks nabbed not only a new monthly, but also yearly record, rising 17.4% in December and 5.6% in all of 2016.
In 2016 the Acura manufacturer annual sales were 161,360. In December, Acura sales were up 1.9% over the same month in 2015. Car and truck totals were 17,148 combined. Our trucks, however, gained 8.9%. For the third year in a row, Acura truck sales exceeded 100,000. With sales of 12,188 in December, #Acuratrucks record the best month in the manufacturer’s history. The midsize RDX gained 20.3% in December with 5,945 vehicles sold and 2.6% for the year with 52,361 sold; best-ever totals. Our popular MDX saw its best sales month of the year and for the fifth straight year exceeded 50,000 units. It remains the all-time best-selling luxury three-row SUV in America.
In the sedan category, the RLX made a significant gain in December and TLX sales were up, as well. December 2016 was the best month yet for our second-generation NSX, with 68 supercars sold.
Jon Ikeda, who is vice president and general manager of our Acura division said “With Acura trucks leading the way and the TLX performing strongly in a challenging market for sedans, we were able to finish our 30th anniversary year on a strong note. We’re excited to carry this momentum, with a strong future vision for Acura, into the new year.”
We certainly agree with Jon and look forward to contributing to record breaking numbers in 2017. Check out a complete inventory of our vehicles at www.cardinalewayacura.com.
