10 million Accords also produced since Honda started building cars in the US back in 1982.
The first Honda Accord rolled off the assembly line in Marysville, Ohio, back in November 1982. Today that same assembly line has seen the 10 millionth Accord roll to a completion. In almost 32 years Honda has expanded production to plants in East Liberty, Ohio, Lincoln, Alabama, and Greensburg, Indiana. The cumulative effort has seen 20 million automobiles built in America – enough to span from NYC to San Fran twenty times.
Combined with further sites in Anna and Russells Point in Ohio and Tallapoosa, Georgia, where Honda builds engines and automatic transmissions, the Japanese carmaker produces eleven different models including the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey, Ridgeline, and Acura ILX, TL, RDX and MDX. Last year, Honda made a record 1.3 million vehicles in the US, 95 percent going to US buyers. Honda is building a fifth US plant dubbed the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, where it plans to produce the Acura NSX.
