2017 CR-V Will Be First Honda SUV Produced in Indiana

March 22nd, 2017 by

Since 2008, associates at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) have been producing the Honda Civic, and this February they became the first plant in the state of Indiana to produce Honda SUVs, beginning with the 2017 Honda CR-V. This is quite significant because it means they now produce the top two Honda vehicles in terms of overall sales. The CR-V in particular is a compact crossover SUV that has also been fully redesigned this year.

Bringing Jobs to Indiana

Employing more than 2,400 people with a capital investment over $900 million, HMIN is a long-term investment in the health and vitality of the region. The announcement to bring the Honda CR-V to HMIN came along with an investment of a whopping $52 million and the addition of 100 new jobs.
