  • 23-Oct-2008 02:02 EDT

Honda on Oct. 9 began production of the four-cylinder Civic at a new $550 million plant in Greensburg, IN, which has ultimate capacity of 200,000 units/year. And in a move designed to reduce Accord imports to the U.S. from Japan and to align plant capacity with consumer demand, the company on Oct. 13 announced its plans to shift production of the majority of V6-equipped Accords from its plant in Marysville, OH, to its plant in Lincoln, AL, in mid-2009 while increasing production of Accords equipped with four-cylinder engines at the Marysville plant. Previously, Honda said it would shift production of the Ridgeline from Canada to its Alabama plant.
