Encouraging Sales Start for Honda in 2013

Encouraging Sales Start for Honda in 2013

17 April 2013

First Quarter figures for 2013 show an encouraging start to the year for Honda in Ireland and across Europe. At 40,499 units, Honda’s European sales volume has grown by 16.3% compared to 2012. Here in Ireland, Honda has also increased sales and market share in a very challenging market. 


Despite difficult market conditions, Honda’s sales performance has been underpinned by good customer demand for recently launched models. The new Honda CR-V has been well received by customers throughout Europe, who have welcomed the style, utility and efficiency of the new model. In Ireland, sales of the CR-V have more than doubled compared to last year. Meanwhile, Honda’s powerful yet ultra-efficient 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine has helped to support a growth in Civic sales, with sales increasing by 50% in the Irish market so far this year. 


Honda will continue to strengthen its range in Europe with the introduction of the 1.6 litre i-DTEC engine to the CR-V in Autumn 2013 and the launch of the new Civic Tourer model in early 2014.


Commenting on the first quarter sales performance, Universal Honda Managing Director, Adrian Cole said, “Economic conditions in Ireland and across Europe remain very challenging. Nonetheless, we have been encouraged by excellent customer demand for our new models such as the CR-V and the class-leading 1.6 litre i-DTEC Civic diesel.”
