This is a very special week for Honda, especially for the Honda Civic. This is the anniversary of the week when the 6 millionth Honda Civic rolled off the line in North America! The 6 millionth Honda Civic rolled off in this week of July in 2007, so this is the 7th anniversary!
Honda is a brand that is based out of Japan. The founder, Honda Soichiro, began the company in 1946 as a technical research institute, and did not change it to the Honda Motor Company until 1948. The first vehicles to roll off the line were motorcycles in 1949, which quickly expanded into cars.
The first Honda Civic to come to the U.S. was in 1972 and then to Canada in 1973. So since this is the anniversary of the 6 millionth Honda Civic being produced in North America, the start date would be 1973. If we go from 1973, that means it only took 34 years for 6 million Honda Civics to be produced in North America!
We are sure that number has continued to grow significantly in the last 7 years. Come to Valley Honda in Naperville, IL to test drive a new Honda Civic today to celebrate the anniversary of the 6 millionth Honda Civic!
