01/04/2006
Honda Truck Sales Up 44% for Year, Led By Honda Pilot

Acura TL and TSX Post Record Sales

TORONTO, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - Honda Canada Inc. reported combined
December
sales of 13,050 units by its Honda and Acura divisions, a 7% year
over year
increase, along with numerous sales records. Acura Division sales
for December
were 1,931 units, up 10% over last year, and Honda Automobile
Division
reported record December sales of 11,119 units, up 7%.
Honda Canada reported combined sales of 154,587 units for
calendar year
2005, an increase of 7% over 2004 sales, representing the third
best calendar
year in its 35-year tenure in Canada.
"The new Civic offers Canadians 'more Civic' with more fuel
efficiency,
more safety, more interior features, and more of the fun-to-drive
performance," said Jim Miller, executive vice president, Honda
Canada Inc.
"Our recent AJAC and Motor Trend Best In Category awards for Civic
validate
that customers are getting more with Civic."
Honda truck sales were up significantly in December over the
same month
last year, led by a 179% increase in Pilot sales, along with a 27%
increase
for Element and 24% increase for CR-V. For calendar year 2005,
Honda trucks
sales increased 44%. The Honda Pilot sport-utility vehicle set an
all-time
record for both December and calendar year sales. The redesigned,
Canadian-
built Pilot now includes vehicle stability assist and side curtain
airbags to
provide owners with a full complement of standard safety features.
"The Pilot is the most fuel-efficient 8-passenger SUV and part
of a
lineup of solid trucks built on Honda's unibody frame that offers
better
overall performance," said Miller. "We continue to see positive
sales results
of our all-new Ridgeline pickup truck that recently was voted 'Best
New Pickup
Truck' by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada and
'Truck of The
Year' by Motor Trend magazine."
Acura sales were also bolstered by strong sales performance in
December
of the all-new, Canadian-exclusive Acura CSX luxury compact sedan.
Sales of
Acura's TL luxury-performance sedan were up 56%, and sales of the
MDX luxury
sport-utility vehicle were up 26%. Both the Acura TL and TSX sports
luxury
sedan reported record December sales, and the TSX also posted
record calender
year sales results.
