Honda to raise Civic output in North America
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.
