Making sense of the Pilot sales figures....
I am trying to make sense of the various articles and sales stats for the Pilot.
There are articles that shows the first 2016 Pilot rolled off the assembly line in late May of 2015.
That indicates that the 2016 Pilot has been in production for at least 17 months.
Sales figures posted at left-lane indicate year-to-date sales on the Pilot are down about 8% over last year (but sales of CRVs are up 1.5% and Toyota Highlanders are up 8.8%).
I know there are other threads that indicate potential buyers are having a hard time getting a hold of the 2016 model/trim they want (in my area dealers have lots of CRVs on the lot, but barely any Pilots). Would Honda have intentionally lowered the production of the 2016 Pilot in it's first year? Would it take 17 months to adjust the production to demand? This seems odd if they were going after market share with the redesign (it looks like they basically would have then gave market share to Toyota).
