The ten millionth American-built Honda Accord rolled off of the assembly line Friday in the Japanese automaker’s plant inMarysville and Ohio, according to Autoblog. Honda is celebrating not only the Accord, which is the seventh biggest selling nameplate for all time, but also an accumulative 20 million Hondas built in the U.S. because the company first started manufacturing at Marysville in November 1982.
Honda was the first Japanese automaker to gamble on American manufacturing. Now, 94 percent of Hondas bought from the U.S are American-built. They are made in facilities in Alabama, Indiana and Ohio. Honda’s U.S. plants manufactured 1.3 million vehicles last year – an organization record.
Honda currently builds the best-selling Accord and Civic, plus the Crosstour, CR-Pilot, Ridgeline, Odyssey and V within the U.S. Acura, Honda’s luxury brand, also builds cars at the American plants, like the ILX, TL, RDX and MDX.
