Individual car purchases by Californians make Honda Civic the most popular vehicle in the Golden State in 2013
TORRANCE, Calif. – More individual Californians purchased a Honda Civic than any other vehicle in 2013, according to new-vehicle registration data now available from Polk, which was recently acquired by IHS. Individual California car buyers purchased 65,910 Civics in 2013, more than any other vehicle in the state when subtracting sales to government and corporate fleet buyers. California is the largest vehicle market in the United States.
“Retail sales leadership is the ultimate seal of approval, and Californians have made Civic the clear winner,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of automobile sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our focus on individual buyers is unmatched in the industry, and reflects our commitment to Honda customers and the investment they make in our products.”
Nationally, the Honda Civic ranked as the top-selling compact car in America with total sales of 336,180 units – and was one of three Honda models in the U.S. with sales of more than 300,000 units in 2013, with the Accord, Civic and CR-V combining to sell more than one million units.
Honda has further improved the Civic for the 2014 model year with more performance, increased fuel economy, and additional new features including LaneWatch™ blind spot monitor, Smart Entry with Push Button Start, and Display Audio with 7-inch capacitive touchscreen. The 2014 Civic also marks the introduction of the HondaLink™ Next Generation connected-car technology.
“The value proposition of Civic just keeps getting better,” added Mendel.
