Honda Taiwan’s Cumulative Automobile Production Reaches 300,000 Unit Milestone
Honda Taiwan held a ceremony to celebrate its 300,000 unit cumulative automobile production at its plant in Pingtung City. Attending the ceremony were Honda Taiwan executives represented by, Takato Ito, Chairman, and Hiroyuki Mannen, President, along with Honda Taiwan associates. At the ceremony, the 300,000th vehicle, which is a CR-V, the best-selling SUV in Taiwan’s history, was rolled off from the production line.
Honda Taiwan started to assemble automobiles since 2003 with CR-V, and gradually added the production line up to Accord, CIVIC, FIT, and CITY. The company continuously offers products which exceed Taiwanese customers’ demand, and delivers high-quality vehicles. The 300,000 unit cumulative production milestone is achieved only 4 years after its milestone of 200,000 unit cumulative production in 2012.
