Honda Begins Producing Tenth-Gen 2016 Honda Civic
Today the Honda Manufacturing of Indiana plant in Greensburg began producing the all-new 2016 Honda Civic Sedan, which will hit dealerships nationwide next month.
Hyped by Honda as the most ambitious remake in the Civic’s 43-year history, the new tenth-generation model seeks to continue the success of the long-running vehicle, which has sold 10.2 million units in the US since its 1973 debut.

“The Honda Civic is one of the most successful and enduring models in our company’s history,” said Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (HMIN) president Bob Nelson. “Our team of Indiana associates is incredibly proud to build this new and innovative Civic Sedan and we are committed to using our experience to deliver the tremendous quality and reliability that our customers expect.”
Nearly $97 million has been invested in the Greensburg facility over the past three years, enabling the plant to adopt new manufacturing processes and technologies.
“Our team of associates took on a number of new manufacturing approaches that are key to helping this 2016 Honda Civic create new value for our customers,” said Troy Niemeier, the new model leader for the 2016 Civic at HMIN. “We are excited about sharing this labor of love with our customers in the coming weeks.”
