American Honda sold 141,296 vehicle units in July 2019, a 1.9% growth compared to the same month the previous year, in which Honda trucks showed strong performance of 3.1% growth sales month-to-date, according to a company report. Honda car sales also showed an increase of 1.9%.
Notably, Acura ILX is up 40% in July in spite of the decreasing segment sales.
"Despite industry headwinds, our strategic approach to the market continues to pay dividends for both the Honda and Acura brands," said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co. "Honda strengthened its position as the #1 retail passenger car brand in America in July, even as we grow our SUV sales. Additionally, Acura maintained strong SUV sales and segment-leading performance from our gateway models which are key to bringing young buyers into the brand."
