Honda Commences Production of Fit Subcompact at New Mexico Facility

February 24th, 2014 by

The time has come for the new Calaya, Mexico production facility to begin churning out the latest version of the Honda Fit. Up until now the model has been imported from Japan, so it’s exciting to see that production has moved closer to home. This will not only lower costs, but it will better prepare the automaker for the growing demands of the popular subcompact.

Honda has been investing $800 million towards the expansion of its facilities within the U.S. The new Mexico plant was developed to have an annual production capacity of 200,000 vehicles. This just goes to show how dedicated the automaker is to provide its customers with the models they love best.

Takanobu Ito, president and CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., explains, “Our new plant in Mexico is based on the Honda Company Principle of maintaining a global viewpoint to supply products of the highest quality, yet at a reasonable price, for worldwide customer satisfaction.”1

As far as what we can expect from the new Fit model, it will offer an improved design and better fuel efficiency. The interior was given some extra wiggle room as well, making this vehicle more versatile and practical for drivers who want to cut down on fuel expenses.
