"In 2018, we took advantage of the continued consumer shift toward light-trucks, contributing to another record year for our Honda and Acura light-truck businesses," said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. "In addition to our light-truck success, our passenger car business also delivered another strong year, with Civic retaining its crown in 2018 as the best-selling retail compact car in America for nine years running and Accord commanding the highest transaction prices in the midsize segment. We remain bullish on the passenger car business and look forward to another great year in 2019 across our entire Honda and Acura lineups."

BRAND REPORT
Sales Highlights

Honda finished 2018 on a strong note with both cars and trucks gaining in December, overcoming over four months of lost production due to a flood that shut the Celaya, Mexico auto plant to narrowly miss a new annual sales mark.
  • Truck sales set new monthly and annual records led by CR-V which set an all-time monthly record, with 42,079 units in December, a gain of 13.8%. Pilot set a new annual mark, eclipsing its previous record by over 7,000.
  • Accord jumped a strong 29.4% on 28,627 in sales for the month.
  • Electrified vehicle sales set new monthly and annual sales records with 6,899 December sales, the 6th straight month above 5,000 units.
Model Notes
Civic continues its dominance as the #1 retail car in America for a 3rd straight year and 9th straight year as the compact retail #1.

Honda Pilot was the fastest growing SUV in segment in 2018, helping deliver a 4th straight year of record light truck sales to Honda.

Solid choice IMO despite the issues I had at the end of my lease. I'm not at all sorry I leased one. Rather fun drive for a largish sedan. I'd rather have its two-door American cousin, though.

"Our Honda and Acura dealers delivered a strong January and have put us on course for a fast start in 2019, despite extreme weather conditions throughout much of the country during the last week of the month," said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. "While solid sales of our light-truck offerings continue, our balanced results across other segments of our business further showcase real consumer demand beyond trucks and SUVs."



BRAND REPORT
Sales Highlights

Continuing sales momentum from late 2018 led the Honda brand to a new January truck sales record—a strong start for 2019 despite severe winter weather that suppressed car shopping in the last week of January. CR-V was the biggest gainer, and Accord had a strong month as well.
  • Fresh from an all-time sales record month in December, CR-V gained a robust 19.8% on sales of 29,152.
  • Accord finished January up 6.3% continuing momentum that saw it lead the mid-size segment in retail sales over the entire second half of 2018.
  • Civic topped 21,000 units in sales to continue its dominant performance, as America’s best retail-selling sedan in 2018 begins its quest to lead the compact segment in retail sales for a 10th straight year.
Model Notes
Production of the new Insight in Indiana and Accord Hybrid in Ohio helped the Honda brand to all-time record production and sales of electrified vehicles in 2018.



Civic finished 2018 as America's top retail-selling car and is the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. millennial, multicultural and first-time new vehicle buyers.




BRAND REPORT
Sales Highlights

Acura brand sales withstood the polar vortex in late January to post a 9.6% gain for the month, with RDX leading the brand with a 41% increase.
  • RDX continued its record sales march unabated, setting a new January benchmark with 4,172 vehicles sold for a gain of 40.9%. It was the 8th straight record sales month for RDX.
  • Acura light trucks just missed an all-time January record on sales of more than 7,100 units.
  • ILX sales were up 22.7%, just ahead of the start of the marketing campaign for Acura’s redesigned gateway model, refreshed for 2019.
Model Notes
Acura was the only top-5 luxury brand with positive retail gains in 2018 and carries this momentum into 2019 thanks to a strong month from RDX and ILX.

The Acura brand was born in the U.S. and with 5 out of Acura's 6 models built in Ohio, about 99% of all Acura sales are made in America.

Thanks for being so diligent about posting these each month. My mom pulled the trigger on a 2016 RLX a couple of weeks ago. It was one of only about 1,600 cars sold during that calendar year.

Your mom took the forum’s advice then. 2016 PAWS was a good year for that car.

Do you think the KC1 and KC2 will catch on after they stop making them?

That's what has happened with the ZDX and the 4G TL.

After they stopped making them and the overall reliability became more evident, suddenly people are standing in line for them.
