Honda Accord, America’s Top Seller For 40 Years
Since its debut in 1976, over 12.7 million Honda Accords have been sold in America. Over 10.5 million Accords were built in the U.S. since the start of production in Ohio in 1982. The original three-door hatchback model began the four-decade long American success story. It hit the streets during America’s Bicentennial year, when a gallon of gas was just 59 cents.
Over the past 40 years, the Honda Accord has been one of the most trusted vehicles on the market. It has been named in Car and Driver magazine’s prestigious “10Best” list 30 times, a record number unmatched by any other automobile. As the first Honda model and the first Japanese designed vehicle to be manufactured in America, the Honda has long been recognized as an American car. The Accord has been in continuous production in the U.S. for nearly 34 years at plants in Ohio and Alabama.
“The Accord embodies the challenging spirit of Honda and our commitment to delivering innovative products to our customers of the highest quality, reliability and value,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Accord’s success over four decades is deeply woven into the fabric of American car culture and American industry, and we are thankful for and deeply humbled by the loyalty and trust that our customers have placed in Honda and in Accord over the past 40 years.”
Nine generations of car buyers have fallen in love with the Honda Accord. The model’s success was built by the baby boom generation and continues to be popular with car buyers under the age of 35 for the last five to six years. Part of what drives the Accord’s success is decades of innovative design to adapt to the changing customer needs. The 2016 Honda Accord is no exception with recent revisions including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfaces. Other new advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies have kept this classic model in step with current technology.
