Honda Manufacturing of Indiana is celebrating a production milestone of the 1 millionth car being built at the plant.

The 1 millionth vehicle rolls off the plant nearly six years after the start of mass production at the facility on October 9, 2008.  The plant originally manufactured the Honda Civic then began production of the Acura ILX in 2012. The Acura ILX production was transferred to the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio earlier this year.  In total HMIN produced 65,172 Acura ILX vehicles during a three year period helping to reach this milestone. HMIN primarily manufactures automobiles for the United States, with some Civics produced for export to markets outside of North America.

"We have come a long way from where Honda Manufacturing of Indiana started in 2008 to where we are today," said Bob Nelson, HMIN president. "Our associates have shown tremendous commitment and dedication to get us to this major milestone and we will continue to work to provide our customers with products of the highest quality. These values and beliefs are at the heart of what makes Honda great."

The Indiana assembly plant is one of seven vehicle production facilities Honda currently operates in North America.
