“Like much of the industry, we’re riding a bit of a roller coaster due to fluctuating parts supply issues, but strong March sales for Honda and Acura speak to the fact that demand remains strong and our retail deliveries are based primarily on what we can supply to our dealers,” said Dave Gardner, executive vice president of Business & Sales at American Honda. “We aren’t out of the woods yet, but we will continue to manage the supply issues to maximize production and help our dealers meet the needs of our customers.”

Sales Highlights

Notes

While the award-winning Civic remains in extremely tight supply, stronger availability of hybrid-electric models contributed to the Honda brand posting relatively strong sales of nearly 95,000 units in March.    

  • Higher gas prices and increased supply of CR-V Hybrid and Accord Hybrid help Honda set new monthly record for electrified vehicles (12,635)
  • HR-V set an all-time monthly sales record and a 14th straight monthly mark sustaining momentum for the April reveal of the all-new 2023 HR-V
  • CR-V posts best month since July 2021 with sales nearing 30,000 (29,943) units on improved supply and CR-V Hybrid’s best-ever sales month (6,932)
  • Accord nears 18,000 March sales on record month (4,857) for Accord Hybrid

Honda will reveal the all-new sporty and versatile 2023 HR-V this month, the first of three new SUVs to be introduced this year.
