Honda has recently announced that it has reached the 100 million-unit milestone in cumulative global automobile production.
Starting production back in 1963 with the T360 mini-truck and the S500 sports car, Honda has grown dramatically over the years. Just a year after starting Honda employed all of the company’s production technologies and know-how and constructed the first Honda plant dedicated to automobile productions in Sayama Citym Saitama Prefecture. This new plant began production of a further model, the iconic 2600 roadster.
Since that time, Honda has increased its annual production volume, enhancing its line up and exporting the brand worldwide to a range of countries. Honda’s current line-up in the UK focuses on global models such as the Jazz small hatchback and Civic family hatchback and estate. These cars are supplemented by global best-sellers the HR-V and CR-V SUVs along with Honda’s supercar, the NSX.
By the end of 2016, Honda had 34 automobile productions facilities in five continents.
Takahiro Hachigo, President and CEO of Honda Motor, said: “Thanks to the support from our customers around the world, Honda was able to deliver 100 million automobiles. Striving to meet the next 100 million customers, Honda will continue delivering increasingly attractive products.”
