Honda Civic Celebrates 17 Years as Canada’s Best-Selling Passenger CarJan 7th, 2015
MARKHAM, ON (January 5, 2015) – With sales of 66,057 units in 2014, the Honda Civic outsold its closest competitor by more than 15,000 units to retain its position as Canada’s best-selling passenger car for the 17th consecutive year. This remarkable feat is a testament to the durability, quality and reliability that Canadians have come to expect from Honda and the delicate balance of safety, fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive attributes that Civic delivers, year after year.
“We truly value the trust that our customers put in us when they buy a Civic,” said Dave Gardner, vice president of sales and marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “Nearly every Civic sold in Canada is built for Canadians, by Canadians, right here in our Ontario manufacturing facility. Seventeen years is an accomplishment that the entire Honda family can be very proud of; from our over 4,000 associates in Alliston, to our regional and national staff and thousands of associates at our 231 Honda dealers across the country.”
Since 1973, more than 3.8 million Honda Civics have been manufactured by Canadians at Honda of Canada Mfg. in Alliston, Ontario and more than 1.8 million Civics have been parked in driveways across the country over the years.
Honda’s commitment to constantly improve the Civic culminates in the new 2015 Civic, which is available in Canadian dealerships now. It is a vehicle with over 40 years of excellence and with its various models, engines and trim levels, there truly is a Civic for everyone.
