  1. 2,477 Insights sold for August 2019
  2. 17,243 Insights sold in 2019 so far
  3. 44,096 electrified vehicles(Honda & Acura) sold as of August 2019 vs 27,292 sold as of August 2018 (Year over Year % change of +61.6%)
  4. I think this is the first time Honda has disclosed exact Accord Hybrid numbers.
  5. Insight + Accord Hybrid = 5106 out of the 6305 electrified vehicles(Honda & Acura) sold.
Electrified vehicle sales again topped 6,000 units, with Accord Hybrid leading the brand with 2,629 sales, a gain of 56.5% for the month.
Honda electrified vehicle sales are on track for a second consecutive record year and double-digit YoY sales increases on the strength of the Accord Hybrid and Insight sedans.

Insight sales are holding strong at ~40% of total electrified sales for both July and August 2019.

This month's blurb mentions a "gain of +56.5% for the month" on Accord Hybrid August sales of 2629 units (41.7% of total electrified), suggesting that July Accord Hybrid sales were 1680 units (31.4% of total electrified). https://hondanews.com/honda-corporate/channels/corporate-sales/releases/american-honda-marks-best-month-of-sales-in-company-history-setting-multiple-all-time-monthly-records

Out of sheer curiosity, I went thru their data for prior months and found the last Accord Hybrid sales data was posted in Dec 2017. Honda seemed to stop reporting Accord Hybrid sales once it fell below ~1000 units per month. Honda also changed their reporting in Aug 2018 to total "Electrified" sales rather than "Hybrid" sales, and started including the Clarity in their totals.

Honda is in the news for their overall August 2019 results, which is an "all time monthly sales record" for American Honda, and a "best ever month" for the overall Honda brand.

A big chunk of this was 'hot' sales on the Civic and Accord (30k+ each). This is ~2 months before the new model year will arrive for these models (Oct), and looking back there are several Augusts in Honda history that have been prior best-evers.

August is 'only' the 2nd best sales month for the Insight (2477 units), after May 2019 (2653 units)... and May was ~2 months before the new model year arrived for the Insight (Jul).

So, note-to-self for next Honda purchase... a good month for volume sales and potential pricing deals looks to be 2 months before the new model year arrives...
