Honda Manufactures 20 Millionth Vehicle in U.S.
In short, it’s not a number to scoff at. In reality, it’s a number to celebrate, especially when it pertains to auto sales. Late last month, Honda actually manufactured its 20 millionth vehicle in the United States, a process that started over 30 years ago. Back in 1982, the first Honda Accord was manufactured in Marysville, Ohio, and that particular model hasn’t seen its momentum slow down since.
In fact, the 20 millionth car just so happened to be a 2014 Honda Accord, the 10 millionth of those ever built. Obviously, the 2014 Honda Accord is an incredibly important car for us, and since that first one was built almost 32 years ago, Honda has expanded exponentially. That Marysville plant is now only one of three in Ohio, and there are others in Indiana and Alabama, as well as other plants in Ohio and Georgia that specialize in building engines.
An infographic released by Honda puts the whole thing into perspective. Twenty million Honda vehicles is enough to reach back and forth between the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge more than twenty times.
