Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced reaching the 100 million-unit milestone in cumulative global automobile production.

Commenting on the historical moment, Takahiro Hachigo, president and CEO of Honda Motor said, “Thanks to the support from our customers around the world, Honda was able to deliver 100 million automobiles. The passion of our company founder who wanted to help people in their daily lives and pursue the joy of driving has been inherited by Honda associates and became the fundamental tenet of Honda automobile manufacturing,”

Honda began producing automobiles in 1963 with the T360 mini-truck and the S500 sports car. A year later, it employed all of the company’s production technologies and know-how and constructed the first Honda plant dedicated to automobile production in Sayama City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. The new plant began production of the iconic S600 roadster.

Since then, Honda has increased its annual production volume, enhancing its lineup and exporting the brand to an ever wider range of countries. Honda’s current lineup focuses on global models, such as the Jazz small hatchback, Civic family hatchback, and Accord family saloon. These cars are supplemented by the HR-V and CR-V SUVs, both global best-sellers in their respective segments.
