It was 32 years ago that Honda became the first Japanese automaker to begin making vehicles here in America. This week, the 10 millionth U.S.-built Accord rolled off of the assembly line at that pioneering Honda of America Manufacturing facility in Marysville, Ohio, bringing the total number of Honda vehicles produced in this country since November 1982 to a lofty 20 million.

Today, Honda's vehicle manufacturing base here has expanded to four facilities -- two in Ohio and one each in Alabama and Indiana. Collectively, they now turn out 11 different Honda and Acura models, including the Honda Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey and Ridgeline as well as the Acura ILX, RDX, MDX and TL which will soon be replaced by the all-new TLX. These factories are supported by component plants in Ohio and Georgia that supply engines and transmissions. Next year, Honda will add a fifth manufacturing plant when the Performance Manufacturing Center now under construction in Marysville also comes online to become the sole assembly plant for the next-gen Acura NSX.

Last year, Honda's U.S. production facilities turned out a record 1.3+ million vehicles and more Accords rolled down the Marysville assembly line than any other single model from any other manufacturer in the country. The automaker proudly notes that in 2013, over 94 percent of all new Hondas and Acuras sold in America also were made here.
