Acura Canada has marked an impressive milestone with the sale of its 500,000th vehicle.
The landmark was achieved as Acura prepares for the 30th anniversary of its arrival in Canada, the first Japanese luxury automotive brand to come to Canada.
The Acura RDX customer who purchased the 500,000th vehicle, Baharak Ayenesima, was presented with a commemorative gift at the Toronto dealership.
“We’re extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished since our early days and selling half-a-million Acuras to Canadians is testament to our luxury products and continued growth,” said Gary Gill, senior manager of Acura sales and marketing. “As we close-in on 30 years in Canada, we have 51 dealers across the country and an unparalleled line-up including the new NSX super car, the restyled MDX, the first in Acura’s lineup to sport the new Precision Concept design direction and the award-winning RDX luxury SUV.”
Acura has grown from 20 dealers in 1987 selling two models in Canada – Legend and Integra – to a current network of 51 retailers marketing a full line-up of luxury sedans, SUVs and a supercar. Ninety-nine percent of Acura vehicles sold in Canada are built in North America, including the RDX.
