Honda Passport

Honda’s commitment to building products in America was on display in the 2022 American-Made Index – with four Honda models in the top 10!

Honda vehicles in the top 10 are the Alabama-made Honda Passport SUV, Ridgeline pickup, Odyssey minivan, and Pilot SUV.

All four of the Honda models in the top 10 were also designed and developed by Honda engineers in the U.S. and are produced exclusively in Lincoln, Alabama. Moreover, the engines that power these vehicles also are built at Honda’s Alabama Auto Plant, with the transmissions produced nearby at Honda’s transmission plant in Tallapoosa, Georgia.

“Honda began auto production in Ohio 40 years ago based on our commitment to build products close to our U.S. customers,” said Rick Schostek, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re proud of the team of nearly 30,000 Honda associates in the U.S., particularly those who produce quality Honda and Acura vehicles at our five auto manufacturing plants in America, including our development and purchasing associates who work together to realize our high level of local production.”

More than two-thirds of the Honda vehicles sold in the U.S. in 2021 were made in America at Honda plants in Ohio, Indiana and Alabama, the second-highest percentage of any full-line automaker for the share of vehicles that were built and sold in America. Honda operates five automobile plants in the U.S. – more than any other international automaker.

Honda has produced more than 29 million cars and light trucks in the U.S. over the last 40 years and has purchased $470 billion in parts and materials from U.S. mass production suppliers during that same time period. assesses several factors for the American-Made Index: location of final assembly; percentage of U.S. and Canadian parts; country of origin for available engines; country of origin for available transmissions; U.S. manufacturing employees relative to the automaker’s footprint.
