Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) posted record sales for the third quarter of the year with a 54-percent growth from the same month last year, closing September with 2,093 vehicle sold.
The sustained strong performance was attributed to the introduction of new market players and continuous product updates coupled with easy-to-own financing options.
The City remains HCPI’s best-selling nameplate with 920 units sold in September. The 23-percent gain from August is also the highest selling month for the 4th generation City since its debut in 2014.
Honda’s first seven-seater multi-purpose utility vehicle’s growing popularity contributed a significant 26-percent to HCPI’s September sales. The all-new Mobilio recorded its highest sales yet at 547 units, a 49-percent surge from August. The all-new Mobilio joins the City as Honda’s top-seller five months after its launch.
“September definitely represents one of the best-selling months for Honda in quite a while. Our new models played a vital part in widening Honda’s appeal to Filipinos. We are ecstatic to be able to see more customers enjoying their new Honda vehicles. This makes HCPI’s 25th year anniversary even more memorable”, said Toshio Kuwahara, HCPI president and general manager.
The year 2015 is a remarkable year for HCPI as its year-to-date performance records 14,260 vehicles sold, which is 7-percent more than its sales in January to December 2014.
Together with its sales achievement, HCPI prides itself for its EURO 4-certified automobiles. HCPI met government’s directive ahead of the January 2016 schedule. This is HCPI’s proactive action to contribute to environmental sustainability. For 25 years, HCPI commits to the realization of a society where people can enjoy life and the joy of mobility.
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, HCPI is rolling out its “Cheers to 25 Years” nationwide promo. Lucky customers who visit any authorized dealer to inquire and test drive any Honda vehicle get the chance to win any of the following prizes: a Honda ER2500 Generator; an iPad Air 2 16GB (Wi-Fi only); or a Trek Marlin 5 Series Mountain Bike.
And as part of its silver anniversary celebration, HCPI gears up for yet another launch. For the past years, HCPI has been aggressive with the expansion of its vehicle line-up. By the end of October, Honda will add another vehicle in its portfolio, an all-new flagship sedan. This will be HCPI’s fourth vehicle introduction in 2015 alone. With the new flagship sedan, HCPI opens up to a new territory – the luxury vehicle segment.
