Honda has built 7 million vehicles in Canada

Honda announced an impressive feat recently.

Indeed, the Japanese automaker just finished building its seven millionth vehicle at its automotive production plant in Alliston, Ontario. The plan, which opened in 1986 employs more than 4,000 manufacturing associates, according to Honda and has the capacity to build 390,000 vehicles annually.

The seven-millionth vehicle happened to be Canada’s most popular vehicle, the Honda Civic. Honda announced that it will donate the grey 2015 Civic EX to a registered non-profit charity in the coming months. Over the years, Honda has helped numerous charities in Canada through programs that include Earth 

Rangers Bring Back the Wild, Junior Red Riders, Let’s Talk Science, CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish, Make-A-Wish® Canada and the Ontario Science Centre.

“More than 1.8 million Honda Civics have been proudly parked in driveways all over this country,” said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of operations, Honda Canada Inc. “Our plant capacity was 50,000 vehicles when we started and we’re now building in excess of 390,000 vehicles per year. This growth is attributed to the superior craftsmanship of the highly skilled Associates who have worked with us over the years to produce the quality and reliability that Honda customers truly value.”

The complex in Alliston includes two plants that build the Honda Civic as well as the popular CR-V sport utility vehicle. Over 1,620 Honda vehicles are built daily in Ontario which means that a new Honda model is driven off the production plan almost every minute.
