Accord Celebrates 40th Year of Sales in America

Forty years ago, in 1976, the Honda Accord, then a fun and quirky hatchback, entered the United States. From relatively humble beginnings, Accord blossomed into one of the most respected vehicles in the automotive industry, setting benchmarks, winning awards, and earning the trust of millions of American car buyers. More than 12.7 million Accords have been delivered to customers in the United States, the vast majority of which were built in America. Well known for delivering outstanding reliability and durability, Accord has been named to Car and Driver magazine's prestigious "10Best" list a record 30 times.

"The Accord embodies the challenging spirit of Honda and our commitment to delivering innovative products to our customers of the highest quality, reliability and value," said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co. in a recent press release. "Accord's success over four decades is deeply woven into the fabric of American car culture and American industry, and we are thankful for and deeply humbled by the loyalty and trust that our customers have placed in Honda and in Accord over the past 40 years."

To mark the 40th anniversary, Honda is featuring a timeline of Accord firsts on the Accord family page of the website as well as posting highlights on social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
