Honda Reports 48% US Sales Increase
In June 2012, the CR-V managed to set its sixth consecutive monthly sales record with 23,282 units, up more than 50 percent from June 2011. Meanwhile, the Accord managed 28,000 units up more than 80 percent from June 2011.
"With robust inventories and great customer demand, it feels good to be back in the race," said John Mendel, American Honda executive vice president of sales. "The strong performance of our core models, including another record-breaking month for the CR-V, demonstrates the fundamental competitiveness of Honda products."
The Acura brand saw sales of 15,370 units, up 76.5 percent over June 2011, the best June sales since 2007.
"The weather may be too hot in many parts of the country, but Acura sales are continuing to heat up," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "With our light trucks setting records and our volume sedans showing major increases, it's going to be a great summer for Acura."
