Honda sales surge through the summer

Honda Europe saw a strong surge in car sales through the summer of 2016, according to figures provided by European industry body ACEA. This trend is a continuation of the Japanese brand’s strong growth throughout the year.

Honda recorded total sales in EU and EFTA countries of 127,655 units* to the end of September, an increase of 27.5 per cent compared to 2015. This performance was driven by the reintroduction of the HR-V crossover, delivering 28,213** registrations. The Jazz supermini increased its rate of sales growth, ending September with a 24.4** per cent increase year to date compared to 2015. The Italian market lead the strong growth on Jazz with a massive 146.4 per cent increase. The Civic range also saw a 4.9 per cent growth, supported by the introduction of the new Type R.

All five of the main car markets in Europe (UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain) saw sales increase for the Honda brand. Italy continued its strong growth in 2016 with a 118.3 per cent increase**, making it Honda’s third largest European market. Markets including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Switzerland all saw Honda increase sales by over 30 per cent versus 2015.

Jean-Marc Streng, General Manager, Automobile Division, Honda Motor Europe, commented, “It is pleasing to see a broad base to Honda’s growth in Europe, with significant sales increases across most markets. Our aim is to exceed 160,000 units for 2016, giving us strong momentum for 2017 as we see the new European-built Civic hatchback range arrive in showrooms.”

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
