Honda Worldwide Production By Nation : 2012

2014 Honda Fit / Jazz

Coming in at 7th is Honda, a proud car making firm. I believe it once considered moving it's headquarters to the USA, but while that didn't eventuate it does make most of it's cars there.

Hondas worldwide share jumped from 3.9 to 5.1%, after a very poor 2011. The USA was up 48%, Japan +45%, Canada +75%, Thailand +118%, the UK +70%, Brazil +65% and it goes on. Anti Japanese sentiment in China caused that to be the only country with lesser production.

2012 was certainly a good year for Honda. The chart below reveals the hard facts. It is colour coded by region. A big thanks to OICA, without whom we would be in the the dark about such important car making information.
