Honda Canada reports January sales

TORONTO - Honda Canada Inc. reported combined January sales of 7,559 units by its Honda and Acura divisions, a 37% decrease year-over-year. The Honda Automobile Division reported January sales of 6,460 units, down 39% from last year. The Acura Division reported November sales of 1,099 units, down 26% over last year.

"The results for January reflect our expectations," said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president, Honda Canada Inc. "Our January results last year, which were twice the monthly average, were unusual and reflected initiatives that we had introduced specially to counter the strong Canadian dollar. When we look at the previous 4 years of sales results - 2004 to 2007 - January sales this year were the best result for combined Honda and Acura sales." Honda reported its best-ever monthly sales for the Honda Element with 240 units, up 24% over its previous best month in 2004. Acura reported record January sales of the Canadian-built MDX, which had January sales of 587 that were up 27% over record January 2008 sales.

Honda Canada manufactures the Honda Civic sedan and coupe, and the Acura CSX and MDX at its two plants in Alliston, Ontario, and produces fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engines at its new engine plant adjacent to its manufacturing facilities.
