Acura Sets Second Best All Time Sales Month
9/4/2001 4:12:11 PM
Acura's year-to-date sales rose to 114,190, up 24 percent over the same period last year. August totals were driven by record sales of the best-selling 3.2 TL luxury performance sedan. August TL sales totaled 6,326, eclipsing the previous record of 6,123 set in August 2000. Year-to-date sales for TL climbed to 47,584, a 4.6 percent increase over last year.
Acura's sales numbers were also helped by strong demand for the all-new RSX sports coupe and the MDX luxury SUV. In its second month on sale, RSX sales increased to 3,184 units, up from 2,308 in July. MDX year-to-date sales rose to 27,139 on August sales of 3,206.
"Despite a general industry slowdown, demand for Acura vehicles remains strong," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of sales. "The 3.2 TL continues to be the #1 selling luxury performance sedan while the response to the MDX luxury SUV and the RSX sports coupe has been overwhelming."
