AUGUST 2ND BEST SALES MONTH IN 1992 FOR AMERICAN HONDA

 AUGUST 2ND BEST SALES MONTH IN 1992 FOR AMERICAN HONDA
 TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Sales of American Honda Motor Co. automobiles in August totaled 72,045 units. Although down from sales during the same month in 1991, the August figures represent the second best sales month of 1992 for combined Honda and Acura Division automobile sales.
 The Honda Division registered 60,899 sales in August, with 45,927 of those units -- or 75.4 percent -- domestically produced. The top- selling Accord accounted for 34,788 sales, with 30,732 of those units -- or 88.3 percent -- manufactured in the United States. The Accord was once again the top-selling passenger car in the United States in August, outselling its nearest competitor by more than 7,000 units. Like all Honda models, the Accord is sold only through dealerships, as American Honda does not participate in fleet sales programs.
 Civic sales for the month stand at 22,829 units, of which 15,195 -- or 66.6 percent -- were produced in North America. This was the best sales month in 1992 for the Civic, with the new Civic del Sol contributing to sales totals for the first time in August.
 The Honda Prelude continued to lead last year's sales pace with 3,282 sales registered during August compared to 3,009 a year ago, an increase of 9.1 percent. Year-to-date sales of the Prelude, newly remodeled in 1992, are up 45.6 percent over 1991 levels.
 Sales of Acura Division automobiles totalled 11,146 units. The top-selling Acura model in August was the Integra, with 5,722 sales compared to 5,542 in the same month last year.
