Honda is celebrating the production of its 30 millionth vehicle in the U.S.A, just after 40 years since it first started production of the Accord in America.

Honda has marked the 30 million vehicle production milestone at its auto manufacturing facilities in Alabama, Georgia, Indiana and Ohio.

The firm first begun manufacturing the Honda Accord at the Marysville Auto Plant (MAP) in Ohio on 1 November 1982, making it the first Japanese automaker to produce cars in the U.S.A. Honda states that it has since invested $16 billion in manufacturing facilities in the U.S.A that support auto production. It further states that in 2022, over two-thirds of all Honda and Acura vehicles sold in America were made in the U.S.A.

12 Honda and Acura cars and light truck models, including hybrid versions of the Honda Accord and CR-V, are currently produced at the company's five auto plants in Alabama, Indiana and Ohio. The engines, transmissions and two-motor hybrid systems that power these vehicles are produced in Ohio, Alabama and Georgia.

The firm has also recently announced two major investments to establish an 'EV Hub' in Ohio, including $700 million to re-tool several of its existing auto and powertrain plants for production of electric vehicles and a $3.5 billion joint investment with LG Energy Solution to establish a joint venture battery facility in Ohio.
