Marysville, Ontario – Honda’s plant in Marysville, Ohio has become the first outside Japan to manufacture ten million vehicles with the production of a Honda Accord sedan. Honda began local production in November 1982 at the plant with an Accord sedan, and has continued producing that model, along with various others.
The milestone Accord was moved to the plant’s cafeteria for display alongside the first-generation Accord produced at the plant.
“Production of this ten millionth automobile is the result of the shared commitment to our customers, demonstrated over the past 28 years by all of the associates who have worked at the Marysville Auto Plant through the years,” said Hidenobu Iwata, president and CEO of Honda of America Manufacturing. “With the support of many other Honda business units, domestic suppliers and our other business partners, Honda associates have demonstrated many times their ability to overcome great challenges and to improve Honda’s competitive characteristics.”
Nearly all Accords sold in North America are produced at the plant, which also builds the Honda Accord Coupe, Acura TL and Acura RDX.
