JAPAN: Honda hits the 50 million mark
Honda Motor cumulative global production of four-wheeled vehicles reached a 50 million-unit milestone in August. In 1963, Honda started four-wheel production with the T360 mini-truck and the S500 sports car in Japan. Production volume increased through the subsequent introduction of such vehicles as N360 (1967), Civic (1972) and Accord (1976). After a period of 20 years, in 1983, Honda's cumulative production of four-wheeled vehicles worldwide topped the 10 million-unit mark. When car production in the United States began in 1982 with the Accord model, the production base quickly expanded in scale, thus greatly contributing to the increase in Honda's global supply.
