Honda Canada Celebrates Fourth Consecutive Year of Record Annual Auto Sales



MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 3, 2018 /CNW/ - Honda Canada Inc. (HCI) today reported an annual sales increase of 6% in 2017, on sales of 197,251 units by the Honda and Acura divisions combined, setting an all-time annual sales record for the fourth consecutive year.  Honda Automobile Division set a fourth consecutive annual sales record, up 6% over last year, on sales of 176,951 units in 2017.  The Acura Division topped 20,000 units sold for the third consecutive year, representing relatively flat sales versus the previous year.

"Looking back on 2017, Honda Canada has much to celebrate.  With our key pillar models, namely the Canadian-built Civic and CR-V, firmly planted in their respective segments, we are well-positioned to continue our success and retail sales leadership into the new year," said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Honda Canada Inc. "As we work toward our 2030 global vision, more than half of all new Honda vehicles launching in Canada in the next two years will be electrified.  We're already off to a strong start with the recent launch of Clarity, Honda's first plug-in hybrid vehicle in Canada, which is perfectly positioned as a no compromise alternative fuel vehicle."

"Acura's RDX luxury SUV served as the brand's success story last year, driving sales to surpass the coveted 20,000-unit mark for the third consecutive year, despite being in its final product cycle year.  Representing the most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade, the all-new RDX will launch later this year, signaling the beginning of a new era for Acura products inspired by Precision Crafted Performance," added Leclerc.
