One Millionth Honda Civic 

Yet another production milestone for Swindon car giant
 
It was a momentous day for Honda workers today, as they revved to success with the millionth Civic rolling off the production line.

The red Civic Type R was met with applause from the very people who have helped make it happen. Some of whom were there when the first Civic model was built in Swindon in 1994.

Honda staff celebrate as Civic production in Swindon
passes the six-figure mark

The achievements of the worldwide car manufacturer has driven industry at the Swindon plant, which is home to the highly successful Civic and the CR-V 4x4.

The new Civic is uniquely built in Swindon, with almost 250,000 cars coming off the production line every year. It should come as no surprise then that the plant has become the centre of the Japanese firm's European operation.
 
When the first Honda car was built in Japan just after the Second World War, no-one could've predicted the company's astronomical worldwide success.

But over 60 years later, and on the other side of the world, the manufacturer has brought nothing but good things to the town, with employment at the plant currently standing at 5,000.
 
Honda's total investment in Swindon since 1985, when the factory first opened, now stands at 1.38 billion.

There will be cause for another sizeable celebration early next year, with Honda's two millionth vehicle expected to roll off the line.
