AMERICAN HONDA REPORTS OCTOBER AUTOMOBILE SALES

 AMERICAN HONDA REPORTS OCTOBER AUTOMOBILE SALES
 TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- American Honda sold


62,484 automobiles in October, down 14.9 percent compared to October sales of 73,455 units last year.
 Honda Division sales totaled 53,110 units in October, compared to 60,203 units a year ago. Much of the decline can be attributed to slow showroom traffic in dealerships due to consumer uncertainties about the national elections. Also, last October American Honda offered a special promotional allowance program to its dealers.
 Honda Prelude sales continue to rise over last year's levels. The Honda Division sold 2,829 Preludes in October, up more than 39 percent from a year ago. Year-to-date sales for the Prelude total 31,562 units and are up more than 44 percent from 21,885 units last year.
 Through October the Honda Accord is the best-selling automobile in the United States with year-to-date sales of 329,056 units, almost 20,000 units ahead of its nearest competitor.
 Domestically produced Accord and Civic automobiles totaled 37,192 units in October, representing 70 percent of Honda Division sales for the month.
 Acura Division sales were hampered by limited 1993 model availability and slow showroom traffic due to heightened presidential election interest. A lack of 1993 Legend Coupe and NSX sports cars contributed to sales of 9,374 automobiles, compared to October sales of 13,252 units last year.
