Honda Produces 1 Millionth Vehicle for U.S. Export

Since 1987, Japanese auto brand Honda has exported over $22 billion worth of vehicles and parts from the United States. Now, the brand has plans to become a "net exporter" of autos from North America, which means that it will export more vehicles from this continent than it will import from its home country of Japan. To do this, U.S. manufacturing facilities will take more responsibility for introducing global automobiles sold in multiple countries across the world.

Recently, Honda built its one millionth model for export from the U.S., a silver 2013 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan, which will be shipped to South Korea. Honda currently exports vehicle to over 40 countries from the United States through manufacturing facilities in three states. These include plants in: Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa, Florida; Port Hueneme, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Newark, New Jersey; and Port Hueneme, California.

Takanobu Ito, President & CEO of Honda Motor Company, explains, "Quality for the world, made in America, has been an important Honda commitment for the past 25 years.  In the coming years, we will take on the challenge of helping even more customers around the world enjoy Honda products made in the USA."1
