American Made Cars
Honda is just about to celebrate 40 years of making products in America, so it’s an apt time for Cars.com to announce 6 Honda models in their 2019 American-Made Index top 10. Their list of American made cars focuses on those models that best help support the U.S. economy, and those top 10 Honda models include:
- Honda Odyssey
- Honda Ridgeline
American Made Honda Cars
With two-thirds of the Honda and 99 percent of the Acura vehicles American Honda sells in the U.S. made in Ohio, Indiana, and Alabama plants, Honda actually has the second highest American made percentage of all automakers, even including those headquartered in the U.S.
Each of the models included in Cars.com’s 2019 American-Made Index was designed and developed in Ohio and California, and each of those models was produced exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama.
