North American Honda plants will resume normal output next month
Honda's challenges during the Japan earthquake included a badly damaged development center and several plants that were unable to produce the parts needed to build vehicles here in the States. Just as production began to normalize, the Thailand floods caused a shutdown of the automaker's Ayutthaya plant, which reportedly led to a 4.7-percent reduction in output.
With Honda's plants running at full steam, the automaker should be able to satiate demand for new models like the Civic and the 2012 CR-V.
