Honda Malaysia has announced its latest year-to-date sales performance for 2017, recording 87,800 units sold from January to October. The company says it remains confident it will be able to hit its sales target of 100,000 units by the end of the year.

With its latest update, the company continues to maintain its year-to-date number one position in the non-national segment, and number two in overall total industry volume.

The introduction of Sport Hybrid (Jazz Hybrid and City Hybrid) and VTEC Turbo (Civic and CR-V) models have contributed to Honda Malaysia’s sales performance, being well accepted by car buyers. According to the company, Sport Hybrid variants have notched up more than 1,860 booking units in five months, exceeding its target by 24%.

Meanwhile, VTEC Turbo variants have contributed to 60% of Civic sales and 71% for the CR-V. Today, the company introduced the updated Accord, which is now available with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance systems (also available for the CR-V). Moving forward, the company will soon launch its sixth and last new model for 2017 – the Civic Type R.
