Buoyed by the success of larger vehicle offerings such as the Odyssey minivan, Ridgeline pickup, and Pilot SUV, Honda reports that truck, SUV, and minivan sales saw the greatest increase in April. Perhaps the spike in sales has something to do with the prospect of road trips with the whole family, but we venture to guess it has a lot to do with the strength of Honda’s current lineup of trucks, SUVs, and minivans.
April’s heaviest hitters were the Honda Odyssey and the Honda Pilot, which were up 31.3% and 32.2% respectively on a daily selling rate basis. This means the Odyssey saw 8,464 daily sales for April while the Pilot moved 11.891 daily units. That’s a lot of SUVs and minivans!
These numbers hardly surprise us, though. The Honda Odyssey is the top retail-selling minivan in American, after all, while the Honda Pilot offers an impressive combination of full-size SUV convenience and flexibility and economical fuel efficiency.
While models such as the Civic, CR-V, and Accord continue to see some of Honda’s strongest sales numbers, the trend toward larger Honda vehicles is indicative of America’s growing preference for trucks and full-size SUVs such as the Odyssey and Pilot that offer a lot of flexibility, and a lot of fun.
