Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2014

Honda Motor Co. reached a new milestone in the United States after building its 20 millionth vehicle since it started production in Ohio over 30 years ago. Honda’s Marysville site in Ohio recently built its 10 millionth Accord sedan, bringing cumulative output from the carmaker four vehicle assembly sites in the US to 20 million units since 1982.

Honda was the first Japanese carmaker to build an assembly plant in the US in Marysville. Since then, it added assembly plants in East Liberty, Ohio; Lincoln, Alabama, and Greensburg, Indiana.

“We are deeply aware that our ability to reach this milestone results from the trust that 20 million customers have placed in our products, and we appreciate their support over the past three decades,” Hidenobu Iwata, chief executive of Honda of America Manufacturing, said in a statement.

“We also value the commitment made by tens of thousands of associates at Honda and our hundreds of suppliers in the U.S. who build products of the highest quality for our customers.” Honda produced 1.3 million vehicles in the US in 2013, reflecting a 7-percent rise over 2012.

"Associates at the Marysville Auto Plant have been building the Accord since production began nearly 32 years ago, and over that time have produced the vast majority of Accords for the U.S. and other markets. Today, the plant produces the Accord Sedan, Coupe and the Accord Hybrid. Accord models also were produced for four years at the East Liberty Auto Plant and two years at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama." said the press release. [source: Honda]
