Since its debut in 1976, the Honda Accord has gone on to sell over 12.7-million units.
Celebrating its 40th birthday, the Honda Accord has been America’s most popular, best-selling car over the last four decades. The Japanese automaker has produced over 10.5-million units in the U.S. since the start of production in Ohio in 1982, and now the company is paying tribute to the special model.
The Honda Accord was the first Honda model and first vehicle from a Japanese automaker to be manufactured in the U.S., and has been in continuous production in America for nearly 34 years. Through its 40-year history, the Accord has also been produced in East Liberty, Ohio; Birmingham, Alabama; Alliston, Ontario, Canada and El Salto, Jalisco, Mexico.
“The Accord embodies the challenging spirit of Honda and our commitment to delivering innovative products to our customers of the highest quality, reliability and value,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Accord’s success over four decades is deeply woven into the fabric of American car culture and American industry, and we are thankful for and deeply humbled by the loyalty and trust that our customers have placed in Honda and in Accord over the past 40 years.”
