Civic Is Canada's Number One Passenger Car for 13th Consecutive Year
TORONTO, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - With sales of 57,501 units in 2010, Honda Civic retained its position as
Canada's top-selling passenger car for the 13th consecutive year. Since 1973, nearly 1.6 million Honda Civics have
been sold in Canada, making Civic a leader in the Canadian automotive
landscape. An all-new, 9th-generation, 2012-model Civic will go on
sale this spring.
"We thank the thousands of Canadians who bought Honda Civic models this
past year to make it Canada's number one car for the 13th year in a
row," said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president of Honda Canada
Inc. "We appreciate and value these new car buyers' vote of confidence
in Civic with its strong resale value, excellent fuel efficiency,
top-of-class safety features and fun-to-drive character."
"With the exception of the Civic Hybrid, all Civic models sold in Canada
are made here in Canada. We are proud of our investment in Canada as a
leading vehicle manufacturer. In fact, nearly half of all the vehicles
we sold in Canada in 2010 were built in Canada, including the Honda
Civic and Acura MDX, ZDX and the Canadian-exclusive CSX."
Of the more than 5.3 million Honda and Acura vehicles that the Honda of
Canada Mfg. assembly plants in Alliston, Ontario, have produced over
the past 24 years, more than 3 million of those have been Honda Civic
Now in its 41st year of operation in Canada, Honda Canada builds the
Honda Civic and Acura MDX, ZDX and CSX at its two plants in Alliston,
Ontario, and produces fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engines for Civic
production at its adjacent engine plant.
