Honda Takes Title of Bestselling Automaker in California

Time to downshift, Toyota Prius. After taking bestseller in California for the past three years, the hybrid has been pushed out. In 2014, the Honda Accord has taken the title of bestselling automaker in California. It was a close race and came down to the wire, with the Accord selling 71,578 units to the Prius’ 71,210 units. That’s not all. The Prius also faced fierce competition in another Honda model: the Civic.

Both the Accord and Prius come in four models. The Accord sells in coupe and sedan body styles with an additional hybrid model and plug-in hybrid version. The latter two sell in low volumes. The Prius consists of the Liftback, C subcompact, V wagon, and plug-in hybrid. With an aging design and an increasing number of hybrids and electric cars, it was only a matter of time.

Prius sales increased by only 2%. The Accord, however, rode the recovery wave and jumped 17.3% compared to 2013. Now that the Honda Accord has ousted the Prius for bestseller in California, what model will be next to overtake the Prius? The 13-time bestselling car in America, the Toyota Camry? The longtime favorite nameplate, the Toyota Corolla? We at Avery Greene Honda can’t wait to see these two Japanese automakers duke it out over California.

Accord sales start Wednesday

Honda is building the new Accord at a record rate, with sales starting this week. Competition from Toyota, Nissan, and Ford will likely intensify, with midsize sedans becoming a main focus for manufacturers this year.

“Midsize sedans are where everyone is putting their resources right now,” said Michael Robinet, managing director for industry consultant IHS Automotive in a recent interview with Businessweek. “It’s a knockdown, drag-out battle in that segment.”

Output of LX, Sport and EX grades of Honda’s flagship sedan with four- and six-cylinder engines will continue to increase throughout the year at the Ohio Honda plant.
