July 16, 2018 Celaya Plant Flooding and Recovery

Due to the overflow of a river near Honda’s auto plant in Celaya, Mexico, all auto and component production was suspended on June 28.  As a result, production of the Honda Fit and HR-V in Celaya has been suspended for the month of July. Our teams continue to investigate the damage to the tooling and equipment at the plant and we anticipate that it will take several weeks to determine when we can resume Fit and HR-V production. The Honda transmission plant in Celaya resumed production effective July 9.

The Honda HR-V also is produced at another Honda auto plant in Guadalajara, Mexico, about 160 miles West of Celaya, which did not experience any flooding.  Production of the refreshed 2019 Honda HR-V is now underway at the Guadalajara plant.

Furthermore, Insight production at our auto plant in Indiana will be suspended in the month of August due to a critical engine part that is produced at the Celaya engine plant.

Our commitment is always to provide our customers with high quality products and production will not resume until we can ensure the highest levels of quality for all parts and products.

We will provide updates periodically on the progress of the recovery efforts and the timing of the restart of production.

June 28, 2018 Honda’s Robotics Research Efforts

Towards 2030, Honda aims to realize its vision to serve people worldwide with the “joy of expanding their life’s potential.”  Robotics research and development is an essential element of the company’s effort to realize this goal, to create technologies such as ASIMO that provides companionship, improves quality of life, and expands people’s potential.  As such, Honda continues its research into humanoid robots.

Moreover, technologies that went into ASIMO are being adopted for use in Honda’s mass-production products, while practical applications are being sought for other products.

ASIMO demonstrations are being regularly held in Honda Welcome Plaza Aoyama (Tokyo), Honda Collection Hall in Twin Ring Motegi (Tochigi) and National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Tokyo).
