Honda begins production of CR-V at Marysville plant

The main production site for the vehicle is at Honda’s facility in East Liberty. But the company announced in January it would add some production of the vehicle to Marysville as well.

Honda also manufactures the CR-V at sites in Indiana and Canada. Workers at the Marysville plant also assemble the latest Honda Accord sedan, as well as the Acura ILX and TLX. The Marysville plant has the capacity to assemble about 440,000 vehicles a year.

“It gives us some additional product in the Marysville plant in the light truck segment which is definitely growing,” said Caroline Ramsey, a spokeswoman for the company.

She said the company has sold 247,034 units this year. That’s down about one percent compared to the same time last year.

Honda hit an all-time sales record last year, barely edging out a sales total the Japanese automaker hit in 2016. Overall, the company sold more than 1.64 million Honda and Acura vehicles last year, a 0.2-percent improvement over 2016.
