Honda to Build NSX Hybrid Supercar In Ohio
Honda Motor Co. (7267), which gets the highest portion of autos sold in the U.S. from North American plants among Asian and European automakers, will produce its Acura NSX sports car in Ohio, President Takanobu Ito said.
Production and sales of the mid-engine V6 hybrid “super car” will start within three years, Ito said yesterday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Development of the car is being shared between engineering groups in the U.S. and Japan, Ito said.
“U.S. is where we sell the most, so it makes sense to make it here,” Tetsuo Iwamura, chief operating officer for Tokyo- based Honda’s North American unit, said in an interview in Detroit yesterday. The company plans to export the vehicle from Ohio to Japan and other global markets and is still studying details of the new production site, he said.
