Honda Rearview Report: May 31 - June 6, 2014

"Spring definitely sprung for the industry in May, and we enjoyed our share of the sunshine with a 9% gain over last May and combined sales of Accord, Civic and CR-V easily clearing the 100,000 units for the month. Importantly, our sales reflect the pure, fresh and clean air of retail purchase decisions by individual buyers.

With light trucks leading the industry, we also set a new May record for light truck sales including a double-digit gain for CR-V. In the luxury marketplace, the Acura MDX posted its best May with sales.

Now, with summer just a few weeks away, we look forward to the launch of the redesigned 2015 Fit, arriving at dealers in volume next week, followed by the all-new Acura TLX. It’s going to be an action-packed summer for the Honda and Acura brands!"
