Acura sedans pushed an overall brand increase in November, led by the new popular TLX and growing momentum from the ILX.  Acura trucks also fared well, maintaining strong market performance as MDX continues to lead the Acura division overall.

  • The Acura sedan lineup rose substantially in November, gaining 29.5 percent for the month on sales of 6,208 vehicles.
  • TLX was Acura’s second best-selling model again in November with over 4,200 units sold, even as tight supply of some models in the TLX lineup kept the new sedan from eclipsing its stellar October result.
  • ILX gained 4.4 percent for the month on sales of 1,652 units.

“The strength of Acura sedans is clearly on the rise since bringing the hot-selling TLX to market in late summer,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “And with demand outstripping supply, we see even more upside potential with TLX and the rest of our sedan lineup in the coming months.”

Video: Tier10 – Behind the Scenes in NYC with the 2015 Acura TLX

2015 Acura TLX - Tier10

Check out how the Tier10 crew filmed the Acura TLX “Welcome to the Family” promotional video in just two nights, shooting out the back of a 2015 Acura MDX:

“Take a behind-the-scenes look into Tier10’s shoot with the all-new 2015 Acura TLX in New York City. While filming in L.A., the crew received a call giving them long-awaited access to the TLX for just 48 hours. After deciding that the best backdrop for the TLX was NYC at night, the crew knew that this would only present them with a number of issues in the city that never sleeps. Anticipating any and all obstacles that would come their way – including the NYC Sanitation Department starring in most of their running footage – the team used equipment that let them remain flexible and versatile – the MOVI M10, a few Canon lenses, and Kino Flo lights. With little sleep and running on adrenaline, the Tier10 team wrapped up both nights minutes before 5 a.m. Watch the video and see what Tier10 can do with the all-new TLX and a few short hours in NYC.”- Tier10

Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Acura Division

Good morning and thanks for joining us.
