-- Setting an all-time annual vehicle production record in North America and the U.S., Honda exported more vehicles from the United States than it imported from Japan in 2013. This milestone was greeted with a good deal of enthusiasm by the team at Motor Werks Honda, a premier Chicago area Honda dealer (http://www.motorwerkshonda.com/
, where they are happy to tell customers that the majority of the vehicles in their Honda showroom have been made in the United States.
Nearly 90% of all Honda and Acura cars and trucks sold in the United States are manufactured in North America. Honda has greatly expanded its North American manufacturing over the past 3 years, investing $2.7 billion to do so.
In 2013, Honda produced 1,781,213 units in North America and 1,309,917 units in the U.S. That represents an increase of 5.3% in North America, and 7.4% in the U.S. from the record-setting totals of the previous year. The record output was the critical factor in achieving net-exporter status in America.
Honda sold more than 300,000 Accord, Civic, and C-RV models in 2013, all of which are made in the U.S. Honda is also the only carmaker to have three models sell more than 300,000 units in the U.S. in 2013.
Honda first began manufacturing automobiles in the United States in 1982. Since then, Honda has opened 14 production facilities in North America, which not only produce Honda and Acura vehicles, but also transmissions, engines, ATVs, and power equipment such as lawn mowers. Of the seven North American Honda auto production facilities, four are located in the United States, with two in Ohio and one each in Alabama and Indiana.
Honda’s success lies firmly in the vehicles they produce — quality automobiles that are efficient, durable, and wildly popular with a broad range of consumers.
