Honda Reducing Production of Accord, Civic, Two Other Models

Japanese automaker Honda has announced it’s slowing down production of its Accord sedan at the company’s plant in Marysville, Ohio. Specifically, the second shift that was assembling them model is being idled, cutting annual production by 55,000 units.

The manufacturer will use the pause to update its facilities in anticipation of the arrival of new technologies, including those related to electric vehicles. No jobs are being cut, but Honda is offering buyout packages to those who want it.

Year-to-date, sales of the Accord are down by 5.9% in the United States compared to 2018. Here in Canada, over the first five months of the year the model’s numbers have dropped by 12.4%. These drops come after a 2018 that was itself difficult, with U.S. sales registering a 10% compared to the year before.
