Where Are Hondas Made?
Honda is about to celebrate 40 years of making products in America. Close to two-thirds of the Honda and 99 percent of the Acura vehicles sold in the U.S. are made in plants in Ohio, Indiana, and Alabama, which gives Honda the second highest percentage of all automakers.
Beyond the models included in Cars.com’s top 10, the Honda Accord came in 14th and is one of only three passenger cars in the top 15. The Odyssey, Ridgeline, Passport, and Pilot are all produced exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama
