On November 1, 1982 Honda became the first Japanese automaker in the US when it began production of the second generation Accord at its Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio. The plant is still making the Accord and has just begun production on the all-new 2013 model that will be hitting showroom floors soon. Over the past 30 years the boys and girls in Ohio have manage to crank our more than nine-million Accords.
The newest Accord features an all-new design and tons of new technology, as well as the new Earth Dreams powertrain, that began production in Ohio earlier. The Earth Dreams engines and transmissions have been designed to dramatically improve fuel economy while maintaining the fun-to-drive nature that Hondas are known for. The 2013 Accord is the first US model to receive the new engines and transmission, but they should be populating out to other models later.
“This new Accord will be very fun to drive, will offer great fuel economy, and will feature a comfortable cabin with a very quiet ride,” said Jeff Tomko, plant manager. “Our team at the Marysville Auto Plant is ready to build it, and we are committed to manufacturing it with the best quality and reliability in the business.”
