There have now been 10 million Honda Accord models produced at the Marysville, Ohio plant.
Combined, the four U.S. Honda automotive manufacturing plants currently produce 11 different Honda models. In 2013, over 1.3 million automobiles were produced by Honda’s U.S. plants, which represented a 7.4% increase from the previous year. Almost 95% of all Honda and Acura vehicles that were sold in the U.S. in 2013 were built in North America.
The Marysville, Ohio plant has been in existence since 1982 and, in that time, has produced 11.4 million automobiles. 2013 showed production numbers of 492,409 vehicles, which was a 12% increase from 2012.
The East Liberty, Ohio facility has produced 4.75 million units since 1989, including 242,363 light trucks in 2013. When combined with the facility in Marysville, a record 734,772 vehicles were produced between the two Ohio plants.
