Honda Reaches 2 Million Production Milestone in Indiana
Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) today celebrated a production milestone as the 2 millionth Honda vehicle built in Indiana rolled off of the manufacturing line.
"This accomplishment is due to the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana make every day to build the highest quality products for our customers," said Tim Myers, senior vice president of HMIN. "This is an important achievement for our entire team."
The 2 millionth vehicle is a Crystal Black Pearl CR-V. It comes 10 years after the start of mass production at the 2.4 million-square-foot Indiana facility on Oct. 9, 2008. It is also fitting that Honda will mark its 40th anniversary of manufacturing products in North America in September of this year.
In addition to CR-V, HMIN produces the Civic sedan and is the exclusive global producer of the 2019 Insight Hybrid. All Indiana-built vehicles are produced on the same production line, which demonstrates HMIN's manufacturing flexibility.
