It was an especially hot August for Honda as the brand set four all-time monthly sales records, including overall brand, total trucks, and model bests for CR-V and Passport. The Honda Civic and Accord also represented a dynamic duo to continue as industry leaders among passenger cars.

  • The Honda brand made company sales history with its best month ever, gaining a robust 19.6% on sales of 158,804 vehicles in August.
  • Honda trucks scored a best-ever month, gaining 19.5% as CR-V (+ 27.8%) and Passport each set all-time monthly records. HR-V had best Aug. (+4%).
