It also is the 20 millionth Honda passenger vehicle produced in U.S.
Honda says it reached that mark with a vehicle that came off the assembly line around 10:20 a.m. today at Marysville, which was Honda’s first auto plant in the U.S. The first Honda Accord was made there in November 1982.
Honda produces cars, light trucks and vans at four production facilities in the U.S.: Marysville, East Liberty, Lincoln, Ala.; and Greensburg, Ind.
The company says that it has invested about $1.6 billion in its U.S. auto plants over the past three years to expand production and implement new technologies and manufacturing systems.
