Honda NSX Production Facility Announced

Honda NSX Production Facility Announced

15 May 2013

 

 

 

Honda has announced that the all-new NSX supercar will be produced at a new Performance Manufacturing Centre in the United States. The €55 million advanced production facility in Ohio will encompass 17,000m2 and be located close to the Honda R&D Americas facility, where the supercar is being engineered, and the Honda Engineering North America facility, where new production technologies are developed.

The Performance Manufacturing Centre will employ approximately 100 highly skilled associates drawn from within Honda’s existing operations in the US.

The all-new Honda NSX is being developed by a global R&D team led by designers and engineers at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. located in Los Angeles and Ohio.

Honda also announced that Honda R&D Americas chief engineer Ted Klaus is leading the global team developing the new NSX, and Clement D’ Souza, associate chief engineer at Honda of America, is leading the team that will bring NSX to mass production in 2015.

“This new plant will be as unique as the vehicle we will build here,” said D’Souza. “In creating the plan for this plant, we looked closely at each process and determined the perfect blend of associate craftsmanship and technology to adopt a new approach to manufacturing.”

The NSX will feature a unique powertrain and body structure to provide an incredible driving experience. It will be powered by a mid-mounted V6 engine mated to Honda’s innovative new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.

“We have a very clear understanding of the high customer expectations luxury buyers around the world have for a supercar, and our challenge is to exceed them and create new value for the customer,” said Klaus. “This new Performance Manufacturing Centre will be key to this challenge.”

Once selected, the team of production associates at the Performance Manufacturing Centre will begin training and establishing manufacturing processes that will be used to build the all-new NSX. The next generation NSX will be built exclusively at the all-new Performance Manufacturing Centre for sales across the globe.

The original Honda NSX was built at the Takanezawa Plant in Japan from 1990 until production moved to the Suzuka Plant in early 2004, where it was produced until 2005. Part of the Tochigi Factory, the Takanezawa Plant was the first manufacturing facility in the world to mass-produce an all-aluminum body and balance advanced production equipment with hands-on “craftsman” processes.
