Good morning, everyone! Whether live, here in Detroit or, for a good many more of you, joining via our Livestream. We’re thrilled to have you with us this morning.
What you’re going to see in just a moment is the most dramatically styled, most sophisticated and fun-to-drive Accord we’ve ever made. But before we pull back the curtain, let’s put the world debut of the all-new, 10th-generation Honda Accord in the proper perspective.
For 41 years and nine generations, Accord has set the standard for passenger cars in America. A perennial top seller and 31-time recipient of Car and Driver’s 10Best award, Accord has consistently been the car to beat. And with cumulative sales of more than 13 million Accords, it means our customers have purchased roughly one Accord every two minutes for the past 41 years. That makes Accord the best-selling car in America since it was introduced… the very definition of enduring success.
