Prior to April 2020, the Indiana Auto Plant was Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (HMIN)
Indiana Auto Plant (IAP) today celebrated a production milestone as the 2 millionth Honda vehicle built in Indiana rolled off of the manufacturing line.
“This accomplishment is due to the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana make every day to build the highest quality products for our customers,” said Tim Myers, senior vice president of IAP. “This is an important achievement for our entire team.”
The 2 millionth vehicle is a Crystal Black Pearl CR-V. It comes 10 years after the start of mass production at the 2.4 million-square-foot Indiana facility on Oct. 9, 2008. It is also fitting that Honda will mark its 40th anniversary of manufacturing products in North America in September of this year.
In addition to CR-V, IAP produces the Civic sedan and is the exclusive global producer of the 2019 Insight Hybrid. All Indiana-built vehicles are produced on the same production line, which demonstrates IAP’s manufacturing flexibility.
Honda in Indiana
IAP is one of five Honda automobile assembly plants in the U.S. IAP began production of Civic sedan on October 9, 2008, and now also builds the CR-V sport utility vehicle and the Insight hybrid vehicle. With employment of more than 2,500 associates and capital investment exceeding $1 billion, IAP has the capacity to produce 250,000 vehicles annually. In 2018 Honda purchased more than $2.2 billion in parts from 51 suppliers in Indiana. IAP maintains one of the lowest environmental footprints of any automobile plant in Honda’s global production network.
