10 millionth Accord rolls off Honda lien in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Honda is marking a big milestone at its Marysville plant in central Ohio as the automaker celebrates the completion of 10 million American-made Accords.

Honda says it reached that mark with a vehicle that came off the assembly line Thursday at Marysville, which was Honda's first auto plant in the U.S. The first Honda Accord was made there in November 1982.

Honda says the Marysville facility and its three other auto manufacturing plants have produced a total of 20 million vehicles in the U.S. The other plants are in East Liberty, Ohio; Lincoln, Ala.; and Greensburg, Ind.

The company says that it has invested about $1.6 billion in its U.S. auto plants over the past three years to expand production and implement new technologies and manufacturing systems.
