Few if any 2020s are available and no 2021 model year NSX will be offered.
Dismal if non-existent sales are to blame for it be removed from Honda Japan’s product line.
The automotive world waited a long time for the 3rd generation of the Acura (in North America) NSX and when it finally arrived in 2016, it earned mixed reviews. No matter how anyone feels about Honda’s supercar, the number speak for themselves – it’s not selling. Because of this lack of interest, Honda of Japan is pulling it from its selves.
Perhaps it’s because Honda made the world wait more than 10 years for the car, perhaps it’s because of Honda’s curse, but no matter the reason, the otherwise exceptional supercar has lost another market. Last year, the NSX was pulled from Australia, and one has to wonder if this isn’t the beginning of the end for the slow-selling hybrid.
In the US and Canada, sales have been weak from the onset. Jalopnik reminds us that only 170 were delivered in 2018 in the US. Canada did the NSX no favours as only 47 were sold in 2018, and only 22 in 2019, or one fewer than in 2020. In contrast, a measly 128 were delivered in 2020 in the US.
Building the Honda/Acura NSX isn’t cheap and with so few sales happening, and this despite Honda’s efforts to rekindle Acura in North America with new A-Spec versions of the TLX and MDX, how much longer will the NSX be available for sale?
