Where are Honda Vehicles Produced?
Nearly four decades ago in 1985, Honda was the very first Japanese manufacturer to begin assembling engines in the USA. Similarly, the brand also became the first Japanese company to export U.S.-built cars to overseas markets in 1987. Two years later in 1989, Honda started building transmissions in the United States as well.
The very first Honda manufacturing plant in America opened in Marysville, Ohio back in 1979. Today, a total of 12 different Honda manufacturing plants are in operation across the country. If you’ve ever wondered where your Honda vehicle was made, Germain Honda of College Hills has the answer! We’ve created this useful reference guide that provides a breakdown of Honda manufacturing operations across the United States.
