Honda Accord News from Your San Antonio Car Dealer

2014 Honda Accord

Benson Honda, your San Antonio car dealer, is proud to announce that the Honda Accord broke a new record this past year. In 2013, for the first time ever, more Honda Accords were produced in North America than Toyota Camrys. The Toyota Camry is often thought of as the Accord’s primary rival. So, this is quite an accomplishment for the Honda mid-size vehicle.

Last year, a total of 466,695 Honda Accords were built on the assembly line at Honda’s plant in Ohio, which marked almost a 20% increase in Accord production from the previous year. Only 445,973 Toyota Camrys were produced in 2013 at the Toyota plant in Kentucky.

This spike in Accord production directly correlates to the increase in public interest in the Accord (and all Hondas, for that matter) in North America and beyond. Approximately 100,000 of the Accords produced in Ohio last year were exported to markets like South Korea and Russia. The rest of the Accord fleet was sold in the U.S.

Worldwide, Toyota produces the greatest number of vehicles of any automaker, which makes this recent Honda accomplishment particularly noteworthy. Honda’s Accord production expansion in 2013 might be a sign that the automaker has plans to position itself as the world’s most prolific automaker.

In other Honda Accord news, Kelley Blue Book recently named the 2014 Honda Accord one of the 12 Best Family Cars of the year. The Accord was also named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was given the Green Car of the Year title from Green Car Journal. It’s no wonder international interest in the Accord is on the rise and Accord production numbers are skyrocketing!
