Honda's U.S. plants produced a record 1,309,917 automobiles in 2013, an increase of 7.4 percent from the previous annual mark set in 2012. Honda is supported by a network of 533 suppliers in the U.S., with purchasing of parts and components last year exceeding $23 billion.

The 1st Honda Accord sharing the stage with the 10 millionth Accord at the occasion. What a moment

The Accord, Camry & F150 pickup truly demonstrate the size of the USA market, and the buying power of its customers.

The Accord & Camry (far from being the cheapest cars on sale in Yankee Land) move about 30,000 - 40,000 units each month. In 2013, the Accord & Camry sold 3.6 & 3.4 lakhs respectively.

To put things in perspective, each of them sell more than the best selling car in India (Alto), despite being priced multiple times higher.

Man these figures are staggering !! I mean we complain about Honda not wanting to make a Civic in India when it sells 500 a month !! They sell 1500 Accords in a Day in the US !! Simply mind blowing numbers.

Even more commendable for Honda is the fact that more than 97 - 98% of their sales are retail sales. Toyota sells loads of Camry's to rental fleets, and they typically renew their cars every year or 2 - so that is a consistent sales channel. Pickup trucks are also sold a lot to businesses that lease them for their work - and hence pickup truck market is directly related to economic activity, construction business etc. Honda just sells to ordinary people and still manages to be so consistent - testimony to the brand name and quality of the product.
