Honda Accord Enters Production

19 Septembre 2017

Honda says it has invested $267 million and will add 300 jobs in central OH to support production of its revamped Honda Accord sedan for 2018.

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.
