That means that vehicles carrying the Honda badge increased even further over 2011, to the tune of 41.0 percent.
The Civic, a segment leader, broke their record for November sales established 22 years ago by selling 30,075 vehicles, a 75% increase over the previous year. Sales of Honda's popular compact car have never been particularly low, but this much of a gain in simply a year is quite significant.
