American Honda Sets New All-Time January Record
Honda Division Posts 34th Consecutive Record Sales Month
American Honda posted a new record for light truck and total vehicle sales for January, with total vehicle sales of 74,606 beat the January, 1999 record of 72,220, up 3.3%. Honda division extended its record sales to 34 consecutive months, with new records for overall sales at 65,997 units -- up 2.1% over this month last year, and light truck sales of 18,703, up 28.4% over January, 1999. Contributing to the increases in truck sales were record Odyssey sales of 8,223, a 185.8% increase over the same month last year. "Even Mother Nature couldn't slow our streak," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of sales, American Honda, commenting on storms in the Northeast that slowed sales in the region. Acura division posted a gain of 13.6% over January, 1999, at 8,609 -- boosted by record-setting sales of 4,684 for the 3.2TL luxury performance sedan, beating the old record of last year by 40.2%. This marks the 17th consecutive month of increases for the TL model. 3.5RL luxury sedan sales of 1,121 were up 31.3% over January of 1999.
