Swindon are exporting CR-V's to
United States
Swindon is once again playing a big part in the UK economy thanks to the Honda factory exporting the first batch of its new CR-V four-wheel drive to the United States.

Manufactured in the newly extended factory, the new CRV replaces the million selling previous model and it is planned that over 60,000 will be exported to the USA this year alone.

President of Honda Motor Europe, Minoru Harada, spoke proudly of the Swindon involvement in Honda's new model.

" We are extremely proud of what our 4,000 workers in Swindon have achieved so far in meeting European customer requirements." he said.

" They now have the challenge of meeting the demands of the North American market, and I am confident our CR-V customers will be more than satisfied." he added.

Production line:
Over 60,000 CR-V's to be exported to USA
this year alone
This is the third phase of Honda's UK export drive after the first Civic 3 door exports to the US, Canada, and the first exports to Japan in December (see link below).

With production at the Swindon plant now over 60% higher than this time year, the Swindon workers at the factory are also proud to be an increasing part of the Honda's overall global strategy. " To see our work exported to America and Japan really puts Swindon on the map." said one worker.
