Honda builds its 25 millionth automobile in the U.S.

Honda built its 25 millionth automobile in the United States, a 2018 Accord produced at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio. Beginning production in 1982, the plant made Honda the first Japanese automaker to produce cars in the U.S. and is one of five Honda auto plants now operating in the United States.

Twelve different Honda and Acura cars and light trucks are now produced at the company's five auto plants in Ohio, Alabama and Indiana, along with the engines and transmissions that power them, which are produced in Ohio, Alabama and Georgia. Honda has invested almost $14 billion in its U.S. facilities that support automotive production including $3.4 billion in new investment during the past four years to advance Honda's U.S. operations. Honda also purchases parts and materials from 624 original equipment manufacturers (OEM).

Marking the occasion at Honda's Marysville Auto Plant was an all-new 2018 Honda Accord in obsidian blue pearl.

The best-selling car in America since its debut in 1976, the 10th-generation Accord was selected as the 2018 North American Car of the Year, following a new-from-the-ground-up redesign that features dramatic new styling, a new body structure and all-new powertrain strategy - including two new turbo engines and the world's first 10-speed automatic transmission for a front-wheel drive car.
