Honda has finished 2018 with a bang. The Japanese carmaker recently posted its 2018 years sales highlights, and it has finished the year with some impressive improvements.
Honda truck sales has specifically seen an improvement. This segment set both new monthly sales records and annual records, making 2018 the fourth year in a row of record light-truck sales. The CR-V led the way with 42,079 units sold in December, which marks a 13.8% sales gain. The Pilot set its own new annual record, beating its previous record by over 7,000 units. Honda’s three-row SUV was also considered the fastest growing SUV in its segment for 2018.
“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.
Along with these record truck sales, the Accord increased its year-over-year December sales by 29.4% with a total of 28,627 sales. This midsize sedan had the highest transaction prices in the midsize segment, while the Civic compact car managed to hold on to its crown as the best-selling retail compact car in America for the ninth consecutive year.
