Report: Honda boss expects Fit sales to surge starting next year

Honda’s President Takanobu Ito said that he expects the Fit to be the company’s fastest-growing model in North America over the next four years. Ito said he expects sales of the Fit to hit 200,000 units in North America, up from 64,177 in 2011.

That means that the Honda Fit will pass sales of Accord, Civic, Odyssey or CR-V.

Ito said that sales of the Fit in the U.S. will rise after the redesigned model launches next year.

“We’ve set the target of selling 2 million vehicles in 2016,” Ito told Automotive News. “What is for sure is that of that, the Mexican-produced 200,000 units, which entail the Fit and its variants, will be the minimum contribution that that series makes.”
