As Honda prepares to celebrate 40 years of making products in America this September, has determined that four Honda models belong on the top-ten list of its 2019 American-Made Index. The Honda vehicles making the list are the 2019 Honda Odyssey minivan, Ridgeline pickup, and Pilot and Passport SUVs. In addition, the Honda Accord ranked 14th, and is one of only three passenger cars in the top 15. Nearly two-thirds of the vehicles Honda sells in the U.S. are made in the U.S. at its plants in Ohio, Indiana and Alabama. This is the second highest percentage of all automakers.
Each of the Honda models included in the 2019 American-Made Index Top 10 was designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Ohio and California. The Honda Odyssey, Ridgeline, Pilot and Passport are produced exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama.
"In a year in which Honda is marking our 40th year of building products in America, we're proud to have [four] Honda vehicles among the top ten in the Made in America Index," said Rick Schostek, executive vice president of Honda North America, Inc.  "Honda is committed to building products close to our customers and this recognition really puts the spotlight on the more than 31,000 associates and over 600 suppliers in America who make that happen every day." assesses several factors for the American-Made Index: assembly location; domestic-parts content; U.S. factory employment adjusted by sales; engine and transmission origin; and for ties, heavier curb weight is considered.
