Honda to raise Civic output in North America

From Bloomberg News

Honda Motor Co. will boost North American annual production capacity for Civic small cars by as many as 60,000 by rearranging assembly-plant operations, after running short of the model in the U.S.

The increase will be achieved by building Civics at a second Alliston, Canada, plant starting in April, Honda said. The annual rate will rise about 16%. To free up the capacity, Honda plans in February to begin shifting output of Pilot sport utility vehicles from the Canadian factory to Lincoln, Ala.
