Honda Sales Data, Trends, Analysis & Current Lineup for the U.S Automotive Market

This is your hub for all of the Honda sales data for the U.S market. Honda is the perennial #2 of the Japanese manufacturers in the United States, and it has consolidated its position after having been under threat from Nissan in recent years. Although Honda has always built reliable and technically advanced (read: fuel efficient) cars, with the Accord and Civic mainstay models, the brand isn’t exactly known for its bold and daring design, which it attempts to change with the 10th generation Civic.

Honda cars are a common sight on our roads, as well as several other roads across the globe. Their cars are a favorite among many and are synonymous with being trustworthy, well-built and great to drive. Even though Honda is a Japanese company, the brand has a huge fan base in the US.  In the US, Honda is known for its reliability.  Honda have been pretty consistent when it comes to dependability and have always been in the top ten for reliability.

There are quite a few reasons why Honda are so dependable. One of these reasons could be due to the fact that they don’t cost much to repair when they do go wrong. Honda cars are cheap to repair and aren’t off the road for very long. This greatly increases reliability. One of the issues that many luxury brands run into is that their parts are expensive to source, replace and can be off the road for a long period of time, which lowers their dependability. However, a brand like Honda does not have this issue, and therefore has an increased reliability.

Honda’s extensive line-up includes everything from powerful sports cars to spacious minivans. And, with their reputation for industry-leading technology and innovation, even the less expensive models can feel like a luxury vehicle.

Honda U.S Sales Figures & Recent Highlights

Honda started selling cars in North America since 1969 when they introduced their first automobile sold in the US, the Honda N600. Even though the company entered the North American market as a motorcycle manufacturer, Honda had an easy time expanding in the US as they entered the automobile industry. By 1983, Honda had already opened more than 800 dealerships in the US, which tells us how successful the Japanese brand is despite being in a foreign market.

Today, Honda has become the perennial number two Japanese automaker in the US, right behind Toyota. Sales of all Honda models in the US has been hovering above 1 million units every year since 2000. Honda-branded vehicles in the US include Fit, Civic, Accord, Clarity FCV and BEV, Odyssey, HR-V, CR-V, Passport, Pilot, Ridgeline, CR-Z, Insight, Crosstour, FCX, Element, CRX, Del Sol, and S2000. Out of these models, the Accord has been the best selling model for the brand in the United States for years, while the CR-V is Honda’s best selling SUV. Honda produces most of its cars and SUVs for the US market in North America, with the exception of the low-volume Clarity, which is imported from Honda’s factory in Suzuka, Japan.

As you can see, Honda brand sales in the US have been declining in recent years. In 2022, Honda sales fell by 10.8% from 2021. There are a number of factors that could be contributing to this decline, including the chip shortage, rising interest rates, and the ongoing war in Ukraine. Despite the decline in sales, Honda is still one of the top-selling car brands in the US. In 2022, Honda was ranked as the 4th best-selling car brand in the US, behind Toyota, Ford, and Chevrolet.
