Another month, another milestone 

Two-millionth Honda rolls off the line

One in two million:

the line on Thursday evening
It's another month and another milestone for the Honda factory in Swindon, with their 2 millionth car rolling off the production line on Thursday – just 12 weeks after their 1 millionth Honda Civic.

This time the car produced was a silver 4x4 Honda CR-V, which was greeted by dozens of staff members, excited to see the final product.

The Honda factory has been an essential part of Swindon's economy since it first arrived in Swindon 16 years ago, and currently employs over 5,000 staff.

And this momentous occasion also coincides with the announcement that Honda will be investing a further £80 million in to it's UK manufacturing operations.

David Hodgetts, Director at Honda UK Manufacturing Ltd, said: “We are extremely proud of our workforce here in Swindon.

“This major milestone demonstrates the scale of our achievement, and this fresh investment will enable Honda to improve overall competitiveness and increase the level of localised manufacture in Swindon.”
