All-time Record Sales for Honda Accord Leads American Honda to Near-Record August

  • Honda Accord sets all-time monthly record with 51,075 units sold – up 32.5% in August
  • Honda Division sales reach 151,551, just 263 units shy of second-best month in history
  • New Acura TLX drives heavy dealer traffic in its first weeks on the market
  • Acura ILX has best-ever August sales, rising 5.7% for the month

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported August 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 167,038 units, an increase of 0.4 percent versus August of last year. The Honda division posted the third highest monthly sales result its 44-year history, on sales of 151,551 vehicles in August while Acura posted sales of 15,487 units in the same period. Year-to-date American Honda sales reached 1,042,382 units.

Honda
Accelerating its strong summer sales performance, the Honda brand topped 150,000 units in a single month for only the third time in its history, as Accord led the way selling at an all-time record pace in August.  [The all-time record of 153,104 units was set in the midst of a severe gas price hike in May 2008.]

  • 51,075 Accords were sold in August, an all-time monthly record and an increase of 32.5 percent. It was the eighth-straight monthly gain for Accord.
  • Odyssey also showed strength in August, with 12,488 units sold for a gain of 12.9 percent.

“The fundamental strengths of the Honda brand are on full display as the Accord strengthened its position as the best-selling car uniquely driven by retail sales to individual buyers,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. “Our other core models, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey are also performing well and continue to drive our retail sales leadership in 2014. And the early market response to the redesigned 2015 Fit is a strong indicator of great things to come as supplies improve,” added Conrad.

Acura
With the new Acura TLX arriving at dealers across the country last month, enthusiastic customers gave Acura dealers much to cheer about in August, as the new luxury performance sedan sold nearly as fast as dealers could unload them from transport trucks. While TLX supplies continue to ramp up, the best-selling MDX continued to set a near-record pace, and ILX enjoyed its best August on record.

  • TLX went on-sale mid-August and is driving heavy dealer traffic to dealerships nationwide. The great majority of these early units were 3.5-liter V6 models as the 2.4-liter four cylinder began arriving later in the month and V6 SH-AWD models just starting to ship.
  • With supplies improving, the Acura ILX posted its best ever August result on sales of 1,798 units, an increase of 5.7 percent.

“With TLX less than a month on the market, our dealers are reporting incredible showroom traffic with customers trying to buy a TLX before we can get it on the dealer lot,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “Customer interest is the strongest we’ve seen on a new model launch, and we’re just now starting to deliver the highly-rated TLX four-cylinder and V6 SH-AWD models.”

Honda to Showcase New Connected Car and Automated Driving Technologies at 2014 ITS World Congress in Detroit

  • First U.S. demonstration of Honda’s automated driving technology with industry-leading freeway entry, exit and lane change capabilities
  • Unique driver-to-driver “virtual tow” technology, vehicle-to-motorcycle and vehicle-to-pedestrian/bicycle technology also to be demonstrated

Honda will showcase several of its latest developments in intelligent transportation technology at the 2014 ITS World Congress in Detroit, Sept. 7 through 11.  Activities include a first-ever U.S. demonstration of Honda’s automated driving technology with industry-leading capabilities such as automated freeway merging, exiting and lane changing, which will be demonstrated on actual Detroit freeways, as well as a unique vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) “virtual tow” capability for assisting a driver in distress.

Honda also will highlight other latest advancements in “V2X” technologies, including vehicle-to-pedestrian/bicycle (V2P/B) and vehicle-to-motorcycle (V2M).

“The creation and deployment of advanced, intelligent transportation systems represent the new frontier in the effort to one day eliminate traffic collisions, injuries and fatalities,” said Frank Paluch, president of Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “We will demonstrate our vision for realizing Honda’s dream of a collision-free society by showcasing our continued technological innovations in active safety, connected and automated vehicle technology.”

The pursuit of a collision-free society is part of Honda’s global safety concept of ‘Safety for Everyone’ and the company’s efforts to use technology to provide enhanced protection for automobile occupants, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and other road users. This includes numerous industry-leading initiatives in the areas of active and passive safety, pedestrian injury mitigation, motorcycle rider safety and collision compatibility.

Consistent with this philosophy, Honda is also broadly deploying advanced driver-assist and early-stage automated driving technologies that help improve drivers’ situational awareness, such as Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Road Departure Mitigation.

The company’s newest offering, the 2015 Acura TLX performance luxury sedan, utilizes the cooperative sensing of monocular camera and millimeter wave radar systems to provide for higher fidelity road sensing and collision mitigation capabilities, including pedestrian detection, steering assist and autonomous emergency braking.

Honda is also leading the industry in the deployment of rearview cameras, to be offered as standard equipment on all model year 2015 Honda and Acura vehicles (having been offered on more than 95 percent of model year 2014 vehicles). Today, American Honda also leads all automakers with the most models achieving a TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Key Honda activities at the ITS World Congress exhibit and demonstration spaces include:

  • Automated Highway Driving – an 8-mile freeway loop in the downtown Detroit area will provide attendees with an automated driving experience in a real-world traffic environment. The Honda system being demonstrated incorporates automated vehicle steering and braking and the capability for automated freeway entry, exit, lane change and other sophisticated maneuvers.
  • Vehicle-to-Pedestrian/Bicycle – using dedicated short range communications (DSRC)-based communication between the vehicle and the pedestrian or bicycle rider’s compatible smart phone (with proprietary V2P/B application), Honda V2P/B technology alerts both the driver and pedestrian/bicycle rider to a potential  collision, and allows the driver and pedestrian/bicycle rider to exchange courteous messages.
  • Vehicle-to-Motorcycle – using communications between the vehicle and motorcycle Honda V2M technology will alert the driver and rider of a potential collision.
  • V2V “Virtual Tow” – this Honda-first technology utilizes connected car technology to empower a driver to assist another driver in distress. The driver in need of assistance is able to alert surrounding vehicles to the need for assistance, at which point an assisting driver can virtually link up and “tow” the vehicle – with the trailing vehicle taking its driving cues from the lead vehicle via connected-car (V2V) technology and automated system – to a location where the driver can receive emergency services, such as a hospital.
  • Lane-level Hazard information plus Automated Lane Change – using a combination of connected car and cloud communication technology to detect and inform the drivers of a hazard in a lane with a live image of the hazard detail. Upon receiving the detailed information the trailing vehicle can perform an automated lane change and continue smooth driving without interruption.

Honda’s automated and connected vehicle demonstrations will take place throughout the ITS World Congress, September 7-11, 2014. The automated driving loop will start at the Atwater parking facility behind the Renaissance Center and will proceed along a prescribed 8-mile driving loop on public freeways. The V2X technology demonstration will take place on Belle Isle.  Free shuttle transportation between these locations and the Cobo Hall exhibit space will be provided by the ITS World Congress. Credentialed media who wish to  reserve a slot in either or both of the Honda demonstration programs, please contact Jessica Howell of Honda North America at (313) 410-3487 or Jessica_Howell@hna.honda.com.

Honda Accord Outsells Toyota Camry in August Sales Race

The 2014 Honda Accord handily beat out the Toyota Camry in number sold for the month of August, crowning the new Accord king of sedans as consumers took advantage of summer deals.

Honda’s Accord sales were up 33 percent over August 2013. A huge increase that reflects the 2014 model’s impressive redesign, technology, and overall value. A total of more than 51,000 Accords were sold.

“Both the Accord and Camry are great cars,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “But with the 2014 Honda Accord, you get more technology, incredible model options to maximize what’s important in your lifestyle like gas mileage for the hybrid or performance with the coupe. People recognized that in August and we think that as word spreads we are going to share the Accord with a lot of people.”

Features like standard back up cameras and Honda’s LaneWatch technology, simply make the 2014 Honda Accord a better choice.

“While competitors rely on deep discounts and sales to corporate and rental fleets, Honda continues to achieve steady and sustainable growth based on the quality and value of our products in the hands of individual customers,” Jeff Conrad, Honda division general manager, said in a statement.

Adventure is Calling with the 2014 Honda CR-V

We recently had the opportunity to check out several newer and older Honda CR-Vs and they were pretty awesome for our young family of four. Not only did Sims Honda dealership take care of oil change lickety split, we got a chance to find out more about their Vehicle Exchange Program.

Basically, if you do most of your maintenance at Sims Honda and are looking to get a new or used vehicle, then you can utilize the Vehicle Exchange Program. Because Sims knows the history and quality of maintenance of your vehicle (a Honda or not), you can get more money for your vehicle. So, we took the opportunity to check out some of the new and used Honda CR-Vs.

This commercial for the 2014 Honda CR-V sums it all up pretty well.

2015 Honda Fit is Big and Fast Enough

When people first see the Fit, they might think it sort of looks like a smallish, slowish hybrid. Well, we’re here to blow your minds because it isn’t small on the inside, it isn’t slow, and it isn’t a hybrid but it DOES get amazing gas mileage.

In comparing the 2015 Honda Fit to the Ford Fiesta, this auto writer explained: “The Fit, on the other hand, fits – in both rows. Its back seat accommodations are as generous as what you’d find in several mid-sized cars. And you could carry a bundle of 2x4x8s home in one . . . with the rear liftgate closed.”

It has more room on the inside than the Accord, but isn’t as big on the outside as the Accord. AND it starts at just more than $15,000.

What else is to love about the 2015 Honda Fit? The versatile and functional interior (fold flat, fold up, etc), gas mileage, and strength of the motor. It is fun and quick to drive!

“The 2015 Honda Fit is such a great vehicle,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It is much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside, it is much faster than most people think, it gets better gas mileage than most others in its class, AND, even for a Honda, it has a really versatile and functional interior.”

Honda Aircraft Manager is Who Makes a Honda

It’s true, Apple Valley, Northwest, and Sims Honda dealerships do not sell Honda aircraft, but we wanted to tell you about who does make the aircraft because this is the caliber of person that Honda employs.

Honda today unveiled the newest associate profile in its popular 12-part What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda video series. Jon Wells is the Senior Manager of Logistics and Materials Control at Honda Aircraft Company, and is featured for the many unique ways he uses his piloting skills to make a difference in his community.

Wells is a 12-year Honda veteran, and his team manages every part that enters the Honda Aircraft Company facility in Greensboro, North Carolina, where the innovative HondaJet is being manufactured. Wells ensures that the material needed to prepare the aircraft gets to where it needs to go at each step of the manufacturing process.

“The aircraft first flew in 2003 and I was actually at American Honda on the automotive side. When I saw it fly, I knew that my ultimate goal was to combine what I do with my passion for aviation,” Wells said.

When not working at Honda Aircraft, Wells lives his dream by piloting his own personal aircraft. But Wells takes his dream a step further by combining it with the Honda philosophy he teaches by using his plane to help others.

A licensed Airline Transport Pilot and certified flight instructor, Wells has transported more than 240 patients for medical treatment through Angel Flight, and has also transported more than 200 animals to new homes through the Pilots ‘n Paws program.

“Honda challenges us to be a company that society wants to exist and one of the ways we can do that is by giving back to the community,” said Wells. “You can get your pilot’s license but after you get it, then what? This was an opportunity to put it to work, to do something good and to show how useful aviation can be.”

The What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda video series focuses on Honda’s commitment to innovation, inclusion, a youthful spirit and respect for the individual – core tenets of Honda’s approach to business that work equally well in the community. In addition, the videos spotlight the diverse career opportunities that exist within Honda, while also showcasing inspiring ways these associates engage in their communities.

The What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda series will run on Honda’s YouTube channel athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxfhBgUbE7w.

No Minivan Tops Honda Odyssey

The 2014 Honda Odyssey is the simply the best minivan available. That’s not just what we think, that’s according to Cars.com. The newest version of the Honda Odyssey is just the Odyssey pulling further away from the competition.

“The minivan market is pretty competitive,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “But the 2014 Honda Odyssey really proves there is no competition. It has led and will continue to lead the minivan pack because it is the best designed, most functional, most technological advanced, and most family friendly minivan available.”

The short video by Cars.com shows exactly why the 2014 Honda Odyssey is better than all the rest:

  • 1 mpg improvement over the last model
  • Touchscreen infotainment control
  • Better materials
  • HondaVac, which is the vacuum designed by ShopVac that reaches all the way to the front of the van.
  • Would win a race with any other minivan, including the Toyota Sienna
  • The seats expand outward to make more room for car seats
  • There is a 15 inch widescreen tv…that can split into two media AND 5.1 surround sound!

Certainly the Honda Odyssey is not a cheap vehicle, but compared to other minivans is right in the ball park. But compared to many vehicles it is by far the best value for everything that comes with it.
