Celebration of a long time best seller in the U.S.

Workers at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana have produced the 100,000 Civic model since the plant opened in the fall of 2008.

The compact and fuel efficient Civic was the sixth best selling vehicle in the U.S. in January 2010, and was up 12% in sales for the month when compared to last year. It is a perennial best seller in the U.S.

Currently, Honda operates one shift with approximately 1,000 “associates” at the Greensburg plant, producing Honda Civic Sedan and Honda Civic GX, the only natural gas vehicle built in America that is not a conversion.

Engines for the Civic Sedan are built at Honda’s engine plant in Anna, Ohio.

The first Civics destined for export were shipped last fall from the the plant. (Click here.)The 2010 model Honda Civic Sedans are now on  sale in Mexico, as well as 22 Latin American and Caribbean nations and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico, Guam and Saipan.


HMIN is Honda’s seventh auto assembly plant in North America, and one of 14 major Honda manufacturing facilities in North America, with two more currently under construction in North Carolina.  

“This milestone is based on the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana make every day to build products of the highest quality for our customers,” said Rick Schostek, vice president of HMIN.

“This is an important achievement for our entire team.”
