Honda is starting off the new year with some good news.

The company, with its U.S. headquarters in Torrance, released that they hit record sales in 2015.

The Japanese automaker increased their sales by almost 10 percent in the United States for the month of December. Sales increased by 3 percent for the full year.

A Honda senior vice president says they are excited for the all-time sales record and are looking for an even more robust year in 2016.

Honda sales are expected to hit the highest rate of sales in the history of the U.S. auto industry.
