Honda America announced record sales for January with total sales up 6% from last year to 90,003. Light truck sales were up to 34,495 thanks to the likes of the new Element, Luxury MDX and Pilot vehicles. Division sales were up to 79,912 which is 9.9% higher that the same time last year. Other notable figures included just 18 new Acura NSX's sold last month (down nearly 50%) and 1,789 RSX's being sold (down just 21.6%) which indicates a still strong market after the cars 1 year birthday. Honda sold 27,449 (up 5.8%) Accords and 20,734 (up 4.4%) Civics' last month.

Honda also began production of the all-new Accord in China last month at the Guangzhou Honda Automobile Co. First year sales are targeted at 70,000 units for the new 2.4ltr i-Vtec Accord, and the car has received a series of changes to match China's road and driving conditions.

Honda's North American made 4x4, the MDX, is to be made available to the Australian market in the first quarter of the year. The MDX will be converted to right hand drive format, and will retain the same 195kw 3.5ltr V6 engine.

The TSX also made its American debut last month at the North American International Auto Show. The TSX, powered by a 200hp 2.4ltr i-Vtec engine comes equipped with 17inch alloy wheels and either a 6spd close ratio transmission or a 5 speed sequential SportShift automatic transmission. Expect the TSX to be in Acura show rooms by April.

The Honda ti Bick Hybrid car won the Foundation for Energy Conservation Grand Prix by recording an impressive 29.5km/L. That equates to a journey of 1,500km before the need to refuel the car! By 2005, Honda aims to improve this fuel economy figure by 25%.

On the 7th of February, Honda recalled 13,037 Honda Accord's in Japan only due to a problem with the headlight housing. The problem is caused by water seeping into the headlight housing and shorting the electronics.
