Despite a tough U.S. auto market, Honda held steady this past year as one of the world’s biggest automakers. In June, the company said that U.S. sales grew nearly 5% in the latest quarter driven partly by trucks and SUV’s like its CR-V model. Additionally, the Japanese auto giant scored a victory this year with its popular Honda Accord winning the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year award. Besides automobiles, the auto giant decided this year to retire its once-pioneering ASIMO-branded humanoid robot that could walk on retail showroom floors, in favor of newer robotic technologies.
