The 2018 Honda Accord entered mass production today at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio.
Some $220 million of the funds go toward updating technologies and processes, including a new $165 million welding department with 342 robots. Honda is also putting $47 million in at its Anna, Ohio, plant to produce turbocharged engines for the new Accord. A laser brazing process for the roof and new stamping techniques help give the Accord its new shape.
The '18 Accord is set to go on sale in the USA this fall.

In terms of both price and drivability, the Sports Series is the most accessible model line McLaren has ever made. All six examples have apparently already been spoken for by customers in the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands.
The automaker is also gearing up to produce the Accord Hybrid at the OH plant.
A subassembly process for the Accord Hybrid's motor and battery unit is new at Marysville, as the Accord Hybrid again is being built in OH after a production stint in Japan.
Through August, Accord volume fell 4.5% vs. like-2016, compared with a 17.5% drop in Lower Middle sales this year.
