Honda Starts Production Of 2017 CR-V In Indiana
Prior to the launch of the 2017 CR-V in December last year, Honda already expected it to be the top-seller in the segment. What the Japanese automaker did not expect however, is that the 2017 CR-V will have a bigger market demand than originally anticipated. Due to this, Honda will now be producing CR-Vs in its plant in Indiana.
Honda's 2016 Investment In Indiana
As reported, an investment of $52 million was made by Honda in its manufacturing plant in Indiana for it to be able to support the production of the CR-V and Civic. It appears that the demand for the 2017 Honda CR-V is proving too much to handle and the automaker needed a boost in its production capability. "We are leveraging the manufacturing flexibility of our experienced Indiana associates to meet the needs of our customers," said Bob Nelson, President of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in a report. Nelson further mentioned that along with the 2017 Honda CR-V, the Indiana plant will also be manufacturing the Honda Civic.
Other Plants Start Mobilizing
According to a report from Motor Trend, Honda's facility in East Liberty, Ohio was the first plant to start the production of the 2017 Honda CR-V. In addition, Honda's plant in Ontario, Canada has also started mobilizing. It was mentioned in the same report that the 2017 Honda CR-V would likely take the place of the Honda Civic as the overall best-selling vehicle in the U.S. market. Considering the fact that SUVs are on the highest demand at present, this projection is not far-fetched.
