Unless you’ve been avoiding Automobilemag.com for the last few months, you know there’s a new Honda Accord in dealerships. While we’ve already seen an infographic about the Accord, the new one shown here has extra information like overall sales plus details on which transmissions were offered.
The most eye-popping sales jump was from the 1982-1985 second-generation model — the first to be built in the U.S. — to the third-generation car. A total of 340,215 Accords were built for the second generation while that number jumped to 938,554 for the third-gen car, which added a coupe body style.
The fourth-generation Honda Accord (1990-1993) may have broken the 100-hp barrier, with 125 hp, but was still slightly slower from 0-60 mph than its predecessor, and mileage dropped slightly, too. The fourth- and fifth-generation Honda Accords offered a wagon variant, but it was the fifth-gen model that offered cruise control.
The 1994-1997 Honda Accord may have made available a trunk-mounted six-disc CD player, but the 1998-2002 model — with overall sales of 1,829,468 units — moved it to the dash and added keyless entry. The Honda Accord sold from the 2003 to 2007 model years included Honda’s first attempt at a midsize hybrid. The 2003 and 2006 Honda Accord earned IntelliChoice’s Best Overall Value of the Year award. The outgoing Honda Accord may have been the longest one ever, but it was also the most efficient as well. That’s changed now that the 2013 Honda Accord can be had with EPA-rated 27/36 mpg city/highway.
It only took the Honda Accord plant in Marysville, Ohio about four years to double in size since it opened late in 1982, and with the updates made to the new Accord, we doubt the plant is going anywhere soon. Check out the full graphic below along with the Honda-built graphic as well.
