Honda reaches major sales (5-million) and manufacturing (9-million) milestones in Canada

Honda Canada celebrated two significant milestones this week with the production of its nine-millionth vehicle at the company’s manufacturing facility in Alliston.

The achievements came during celebrations of 50 years of operations and 34 years of vehicle production in Canada.

The nine million vehicles built reflects the cumulative output of Honda’s two auto plants in Ontario and the five million vehicles sold represents┬ácumulative sales of Honda and Acura automotive brands in Canada

Honda’s cutting-edge manufacturing plant built its first vehicle in Canada in 1986 and since that time, the company has added a second vehicle production facility, as well as an engine manufacturing plant.

“These milestones not only showcase the success of our products, but the dedication, capability and collaboration of our Honda associates and dealerships across the country,” says Dave Gardner, President and CEO, Honda Canada Inc. “We are very proud of how we’ve grown, how we’ve invested in Canada and the fact that so many Canadians are part of the Honda family. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to our success and I’m looking forward to our bright future here in Canada.” 

Honda’s first vehicle built in Canada was a Honda Accord Sedan.

Today, Honda builds cars and light trucks, including the CR-V and the Civic, Canada’s best-selling passenger car in Canada the past 22 consecutive years.
