The Japanese automaker, Honda, has built the twenty millionth vehicle in United States of America alongside rolling off its ten millionth Accord from its first US plant situated in Marysville, Ohio. Interestingly, Honda was the first Japanese automaker who started production of Japanese cars in the country. On 1st November 1982, the Marysville plant rolled out the first US made Honda, which was an Accord, and within a period of 32 years, the company has achieved the production of 10 million Accords.

Presently, Honda has a total of four assembly plants in the US, situated in East Liberty, Alabama, Marysville and Indiana where the company assembles a total of 11 different models; out of which four are passenger models while the rest are light weight trucks.

Associates at the Marysville Auto Plant have been building the Accord since production began nearly 32 years ago, and over that time have produced the vast majority of Accords for the U.S. and other offshore markets. Presently, the plant produces the Accord Sedan, Coupe and the Hybrid. The company has also been constructing its fifth plant, the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, which will exclusively assemble the next-generation Acura NSX from next year.

Over the past three years, Honda has invested around 1.6 billion US dollars over its manufacturing plants to increase the production and advancement of technology. The company sold a total of 1,309,917 units in 2013 in the US market and registered a growth of 7.4 per cent over the preceding year.
