Honda Accord Takes Early Lead as America's Most Popular Car in 2014 Based on Retail Registrations

Accord leads all passenger cars in retail new-vehicle registrations to individual car buyers for first three months of 2014
Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey are #1 in segment in retail new-vehicle registrations


TORRANCE, Calif., May 22, 2014 - Accord is leading in the effort to repeat its 2013 performance as the most popular new car with individual American car buyers. Through the first three months of 2014, four of Honda's five top-selling models - Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey - each led their segments in retail registrations for the first quarter of 2014, according to a Honda analysis of new vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive.

These same four Honda models earned top retail registrations status for the full year in 2013, with Accord earning the title of America's most popular car based on retail registrations, and Civic and CR-V achieving both retail and outright best-selling status in their respective segments.

"We're thrilled to be leading the pack in the first lap around the track in 2014," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "In a business environment marked by intense competition and heavy incentives, we want to thank our Honda customers for the trust they continue to place in our products."

Highlights for the Honda brand in the first quarter of 2014 include:


Excluding full-size pickups, the Accord, Civic and CR-V held three of the top five slots - first, third and fourth, respectively - in registrations among individual car buyers in the first quarter of 2014.


The Accord, with retail registrations totaling 78,355 units through March, maintained a narrow lead of less than 1,000 units over its nearest competitor. Retail registrations accounted for 98.4 percent of all Accord registrations for the period, according to Honda analysis of IHS Automotive registration data.


Civic retail registrations of 70,677 units led all small cars, beating the closest segment competitor by more than 10,000 units.
CR-V retail registrations rose 3.9 percent to 67,773 units compared to the first quarter last year, giving CR-V a more than 7,000-unit lead over the #2 selling vehicle in the segment.


Odyssey retail registrations of 27,748 units made it the top choice among retail minivan customers.

How Honda Helps: "Into the Unkown" short film

   As a company devoted to the advancement of human mobility, Honda's innovative research and development efforts during the past decade have yielded such diverse outcomes as humanoid robotics, walking assistance devices, Honda Jet, fuel cell electric vehicle technology, thin film solar cells, increased rice crop yields and functional nano-materials - in addition to the design and development of automobiles, motorcycles, and power equipment products. Based on its belief in the value of technology to address the needs of society, it is Honda's mission to develop products that anticipate and satisfy the evolving needs of its customers while meeting society's demand for cleaner, safer, more efficient and sustainable means of transportation and human mobility

   As part of the "DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE" Documentary Series, Honda will debut its seventh short-film documentary, "Into the Unknown," at http://dreams.honda.com on Sunday, Nov. 7. That evening, a 90-second trailer for the new short-film documentary will air during the premiere of National Geographic Channel's "Great Migrations," an epic miniseries event that takes viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species.
  
The "DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE" Documentary Series is intended to speak to the hearts and minds of consumers by revealing stories of Honda's corporate philosophy at work through an intimate multimedia, interactive website. "Our latest 'DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE' film explores some of Honda's most amazing R&D ventures?brain-machine interface, robotics, advanced safety technology?but at the heart of the film is the idea that society has made its greatest advances thanks to the efforts of a few pioneering explorers, inventors and thinkers who were brave enough to make the leap into the unknown," said writer and producer Todd Carey of RPA.

   "Honda's 'Power of Dreams' marketing spotlights human stories of perseverance, including our long-standing engineering commitment to develop cleaner forms of mobility," said Barbara Ponce, manager of corporate advertising for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Our corporate film series naturally aligns with the compelling 'Great Migrations'' themes of resolve and ingenuity. The inspiring content and cutting-edge caliber of 'Great Migrations' parallels the uplifting stories and cinematic quality of our 'DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE' Documentary Series."


   
The all-new 2013 Honda Odyssey is the ultimate minivan reinvented, re-energized and evolved. With its modern styling, spacious interior, and high-tech features, the new Odyssey almost demands a new category. Although it carries up to 8 passengers, there's nothing "minivan" about the Odyssey's efficient-yet-sporty performance, available 10-way power adjustable leather-trimmed front seating, authoritative acceleration and all the thoughtful engineering you'd expect from a Honda.

Of course, the new Odyssey pushes the tech envelope further with available features like a 16.2-inch dual-view-capable ultra-wide DVD Rear Entertainment System with HDMI input, and a premium audio system with 12 speakers. Everything is gracefully held together by a lattice of user-friendliness and simplicity-just load it with family and friends, gear up, and go.
