“2015 was a momentous year for Honda, as we sold more vehicles to Canadian customers than any previous year in our history, including the Honda Civic, Canada’s best-selling passenger vehicle for the 18th consecutive year. Our success was achieved by focusing on our customers, providing a robust vehicle line-up that appeals to a wide variety of Canadians,” said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of operations, Honda Canada Inc. “As our loyal customers are a key pillar of our success, we’d like to thank the thousands of Canadians who supported Honda and Acura this past year.”

This many vehicles built by Canadians, for Canadians at Honda’s manufacturing facility in Alliston, Ontario, is definitely worth recognizing,” added Gardner.
