"This is an exciting time to be an associate at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama at a time when we are strengthening the Honda light-truck lineup as a major driver of our future sales growth.
The all-new 2016 Honda Pilot went into mass production startup this week in Alabama, marking the culmination of a tremendous team effort to bring to market the most confident, capable and technologically sophisticated Honda SUV we've ever made. I am tremendously proud of the entire Honda team, including the U.S. R&D team that created this great new Pilot, but in particular all of our associates in Alabama who will now build this amazing new Pilot for our Honda customers here in North America and around the world.
Over the next year or so, our plant in Alabama will serve as the focal point for the remake of three pillar Honda light-truck models, starting with this new Pilot and continuing with the launch next year of the next generation Honda Ridgeline truck, followed by a complete redesign of the Honda Odyssey, already the highest retail-selling minivan in America.
I have the greatest confidence in the ability of our Alabama team to meet these challenges and exceed the expectations of our customers in the days ahead."
